.NET Framework Essentials, 2nd Edition Review

By spudman

from Undisclosed

Comments about O'Reilly Media .NET Framework Essentials, 2nd Edition:

Essentials is a book that can take a developer through the .NET framework, like a really good tour guide. The books examples are in C#, Managed C++ or VB.NET so you can actually see how to implement the features (would be nice if they had examples in C#, MC++ and VB - just so you could see the nuances between the languages). You can get this information for free online, but it would take hours just finding the details that Thai and Lam bring out. And all under one cover. Excellent!!!

Comments about O'Reilly Media .NET Framework Essentials, 2nd Edition:

Great introductory book that covers most of the .net framework. First two chapter teaches on the introuduction to .net. Next introuduces to programming with simple examples in c#, c++ and vb. Next few chapters describes ado and asp and windows forms. A great book that covers all of the area with comparision with examples in C#,managed c++, vb.net.

Comments about O'Reilly Media .NET Framework Essentials, 2nd Edition:

This is an outstanding book. I have the first edition too. The book provides some of the lower level details you typically do not see in most books. These are the details that help us know what is going on behind the scenes! I highly recommend this one.
