Beginning C# Object-Oriented Programming brings you into the modern world of development as you master the fundamentals of programming with C# and learn to develop efficient, reusable, elegant code through the object-oriented programming (OOP) methodology. Take your skills out of the 20th century and into this one with Dan Clark's accessible, quick-paced guide to C# and object-oriented programming, completely updated for .NET 4.0 and C# 4.0.

As you develop techniques and best practices for coding in C#, one of the world's most popular contemporary languages, you'll experience modeling a “real world” application through a case study, allowing you to see how both C# and OOP (a methodology you can use with any number of languages) come together to make your code reusable, modern, and efficient.

With more than 30 fully hands-on activities, you'll discover how to transform a simple model of an application into a fully-functional C# project, including designing the user interface, implementing the business logic, and integrating with a relational database for data storage. Along the way, you will explore the .NET Framework, the creation of a Windows-based user interface, a web-based user interface, and service-oriented programming, all using Microsoft's industry-leading Visual Studio 2010, C#, Silverlight, the Entity Framework, and more.

What you’ll learn Learn to use the Universal Modeling Language (UML) to quickly design an application correctly from the first time Understand object-oriented programming principles and how they benefit your work in today's dual Web- and Windows-based world Integrate OOP fundamentals when developing code in C# Discover the .NET Framework and how it can help you create applications quickly and efficiently Walk along as the author develops a complete Windows- and Web-based application using the techniques and best practices covered inside Who this book is for

If you're a beginning C# programmer who wants to gain a foundation in object-oriented programming along with the C# language basics, this book is for you. Programmers transitioning from a procedure-oriented programming model to an object-oriented model will also find many practical suggestions and walkthroughs inside. In particular, Visual Basic developers who want to transition to C# programming, but lack a firm grasp of object-oriented programming principles, will find this book an excellent starting point for their journey into C#. The book includes a primer in Appendix A that discusses some fundamental procedural programming concepts.
