C# For Developers

Jesse Liberty knows his stuff when it comes to C#. He's the author of O'Reilly's PROGRAMMING C#, which is consistently the first C# book I grab off the shelf (and it's a pretty extensive shelf these days) when I have a C# programming question. This 24-hour CD-ROM lecture set lets him share that knowledge with you.

The course starts out with an introduction to the .NET platform, but then quickly gets into C# language issues. As befits a strong object-oriented language, there's a lot of material here about building classes in C#, and Liberty gets into all of the fine details. He also covers a lot of the important interfaces that help your classes work better with the rest of the .NET Framework.

You'll also learn the basics of ADO.NET and ASP.NET programming, XML and other I/O methods, event-driven programming, and other core C# skill. 24 hours isn't enough to make anyone an expert in C#, but at the end of this course you should be prepared to write useful programs in the language and be ready to do your own digging into more expert material.
