About The BookJava developers—learn C# quickly and thoroughly with this book!

Although Java and C# share many similarities, there are fundamental differences between them. What’s more, C#—the language designed from the ground up for programming the Microsoft® .NET Framework—offers a wealth of new features that enable programmers to tap the full power of.NET. This is the ideal guide to help any Java developer master .NET programming with C#. The authors—two Java and C# experts—reveal the similarities and differences between the two platforms these languages support. Then they show you how to leverage your Java experience to get up to speed in C# development with a minimum of difficulty. It’s the definitive programming resource as you tackle the .NET class libraries and learn to write applications for .NET with C#. Topics covered include:

  • Introduction to Microsoft .NET

  • Comparing Java and .NET technologies

  • Creating assemblies

  • Language syntax and features

  • Data types

  • Advanced language features

  • Strings and regular expressions

  • Numbers and dates

    The two tech veterans who wrote this book can help you master C# quickly. They do an admirable job of describing the basics of the .NET initiative: its goals, structure, and capabilities. Then they help you leap the biggest hurdle of all—understanding the structure and purpose of the .NET class libraries. Their book presents the underlying concepts, explains the challenges you’ll face, and guides you past the pitfalls with ease.
