Illustrated C# 2005 doesnt use the traditional dense prose format of most programming texts. Rather, it presents the C# programming language in a unique visual manner. The book uses three techniques to achieve this: concise text, tables that clarify and summarize language features, and frequent figures and diagrams. Each feature is also illustrated with concise, focused code samples. The book starts with an overview of the .NET platform and the role played by C#, then quickly delves into the language.
