C# Cookbook
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: January 2004
Pages: 864

Easy to learn and use, the C# language is targeted at developers for Microsoft's .NET platform who've worked with a C-like language before, such as C, C++, or Java. There's no shortage of excellent tutorials and documentation to help new developers get a handle on the language, such as O'Reilly's Learning C# or Programming C#. But when you need practical answers to the day-to-day questions you run up against, a tutorial isn't going to do the trick. The C# Cookbook gets straight to the heart of the problem with code recipes collected especially for developers working on the .NET platform.

The C# Cookbook offers a definitive collection of solutions and examples for this new programming language. Recipes range from simple tasks to the more complex, and are organized with respect to the types of problems you'll need to solve as you progress in your experience as a C# programmer. Nearly every recipe contains a complete, documented code sample showing you how to solve the specific problem, as well as a discussion of how the underlying technology works and a discussion of alternatives, limitations, and other considerations where appropriate.

The recipes in the C# Cookbook are organized into seventeen chapters, each of which focuses on a particular topic in creating C# solutions. Among the topics covered, you'll find:

  • Numeric data types in C#
  • Strings and characters
  • Classes and structures
  • Exception handling
  • Delegates and events
  • Regular expressions
  • Data structures and algorithms
  • Networking
  • Security
  • Unsafe Code
You don't need to be an experienced C# or .NET developer to use this book. The C# Cookbook is designed for users of all levels with recipes targeted at the real-world developer who needs to solve problems now, not learn lots of theory first. With this guide, all developers will be able to learn and improve their mastery of both the language and the .NET Framework Class Libraries.

Rich Book C#

Comments about oreilly C# Cookbook:

The measure that I evolve with C# start to understand this book better.

I understand that to read this book you must make a detailed analysis. A point key to detach is the OOP concepts.

C# Cookbook Review

By Andrew Bools

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly C# Cookbook:

For someone who is new to C#, but knows other programming languages and programming in general, this book is exactly what you need. It covers all those 'now how do I do that?' type questions clearly and in depth. I am not taking this to my work, as it will dissapear. The organisation is excellent, each solution is carefully explained with just enough information to not overwhelm. Up to the usual high Oreilly standard.
