C# PRIMER is acomprehensive, example-driven introduction to this new object-oriented programminglanguage.C# is a cornerstone of Microsoft’s new .NET platform. Inheriting many features from bothJava and C++, C# is destined to become the high-level programming language of choicefor building high-performance Windows and Web applications and components–from XMLbasedWeb services to middle-tier business objects and system-level applications.First, you will tour the language, looking at built-in features such as the class mechanism,class inheritance, and interface inheritance–all while you build small programs.
