This book gives experienced developers the practical insight they need to build enterprise applications for Microsoft's .NET platform using C#. Using a running case study and extensive code examples, the authors illuminate essential .NET concepts such as interfaces, attributes, collections, threading, remoting, security, and versioning, and introduce powerful new .NET technologies such as ADO.NET and ASP.NET. Michael Stiefel and Robert Oberg show how to create a simple, monolithic C# console application; enhance it with a Windows Forms interface; isolate functionality inside components, add database access, secure the code, and deliver functionality through ASP.NET and Web Services. Developers with no C# experience will appreciate the book's self-contained C# overview; those familiar with C# can proceed directly to the book's in-depth .NET Framework coverage. Application Development Using C# and .NET is one of a breakthrough series of focused guides to .NET written by expert practitioners and instructors. All books in the Prentice Oberg.Net Series teach in a systematic, step-by-step manner, using rich examples and a shared case study. They integrate perfectly: developers who want an even stronger understanding of the basics of C# can find it in the companion introductory title, Introduction to C# Using .NET.
