Most C# books are written for experienced C++ and Java programmers. If you're a novice programmer, or you have experience in VB6 or other procedural programming languages, and you want to learn C#, until now you've been out of luck.

That's why Jesse Liberty, author of the best-selling books Programming C# and Programming ASP.NET, has written an entry-level guide to C#. Written in a warm and friendly manner, this book assumes no prior programming experience, and provides an easy introduction to Microsoft's premier .NET language.

Learning C# is a complete introduction to C# and object-oriented programming. Learning C# will help you build a solid foundation in .NET, and show how to apply your skills by using dozens of tested examples. Learning C# introduces Visual Studio .NET, a tool set for building Windows and Web applications. You'll learn about the syntax and structure of the C# language, including operators, classes and interfaces, structs, arrays, and strings. Liberty then demonstrates how to develop various kinds of applications--including those that work with databases--and web services.

By the time you've finished Learning C# you'll be ready to move on to a more advanced programming guide that will help you create large-scale web and Windows applications.

Whether you have a little object-oriented programming experience or you are new to programming altogether, Learning C# will set you firmly on your way to mastering the essentials of the C# language.

I Love this book

By Nordite

Comments about oreilly Learning C#:

This book is exactly what I needed to get started in C#. If you are brand new to programing this book is a must. It gives you the building block basics to help you get a good start and keep going. The most help to me was the great examples that explain things in simple terms that were easy to grasp. I think the only suggestion I would make is that if this book is ever revised would be to continue with more of those kinds simple terms where the book starts to get more complicated. That said this book is a must have for anyone that wants to learn C#.

Learning C# Review

By Jon Disaster

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly Learning C#:

I found this book did a great job of doing exactly as it sets out to do - teach you the fundamentals of the language with an emphasis on OO. It provides a solid base from which you can build on.

However, as a long time VB programmer with a lot of exposure to the concepts of OO, but little practical experience, I found I would have been better off going directly to 'Programming C#' instead.

So if you are anything more than a complete novice to Object-Oriented programming you might find 'Programming C#' gives you a bit more bang for your buck.

Also, contrary to the previous reviewer's remarks, the example code is available on the author's site:

He might want to exchange 'Learning C#' for another popular O'Reilly title - 'Learning To Read'. =)

Learning C# Review

By Donald Gillette

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly Learning C#:

This book is somewhat useless without the source code in electronic media format. The source code is supposed to be posted on the author's site www.libertyalliance.com, but is not. I have written to the author twice with no response. I am going to return the book.
