As a Java developer and instructor, Jacquie Barker wrote her first book, Beginning Java Objects, to communicate her passionate belief that learning objects thoroughly is an essential first step in mastering an object-oriented programming language (OOPL). Since Beginning Java Objects was first published in November 2000, we’ve heard from countless readers who agree wholeheartedly! We were therefore delighted when Gary Cornell, the publisher of Apress, and Dominic Shakeshaft, Apress editorial director, approached us about producing a C# version of Beg- ning Java Objects. It’s indeed true that basic object concepts are “language neutral. ” What you’ll learn conceptually about objects in Part One of this book, and about object modeling in Part Two, could apply equally well to any OOPL. But our goal for this book is twofold: not only do we want to teach you about objects and object modeling, but we also want to get you properly jump-started with the C# programming language by showing you how such concepts translate into C# syntax specifically. Hence, Beginning C# Objects was born! The first edition of Beginning C# Objects came out in the spring of 2004. Since that time, C# and the . NET platform have grown by leaps and bounds. Several new releases of the . NET Framework have come out, and many exciting new features have been added to the C# p- gramming language. This second edition of the book captures the “latest and greatest” of .
