C# is a simple, modern, object-oriented, and type-safe programming language that combines the high productivity of rapid application development languages with the raw power of C and C++. Written by the language's architect, Anders Hejlsberg, and design team members, and now updated for C# 2.0, The C# Programming Language, Second Edition, is the definitive technical reference for C#. The book provides the complete specification of the language, along with descriptions, reference materials, and code samples from the C# design team.

The first part of the book opens with an introduction to the language to bring readers quickly up-to-speed on the concepts of C#. Next follows a detailed and complete technical specification of the C# 1.0 language, as delivered in Visual Studio .NET 2002 and 2003. Topics covered include Lexical Structure, Types, Variables, Conversions, Expressions, Statements, Namespaces, Exceptions, Attributes, and Unsafe Code.

The second part of the book describes the many new features of C# 2.0, including Generics, Anonymous Methods, Iterators, Partial Types, and Nullable Types. This second edition describes C# 2.0 as actually released in Visual Studio .NET 2005, with many additions and improvements over the design presented in the first edition. Reference tabs and an exhaustive index allow readers to easily navigate the text and quickly find the topics that interest them most.

The C# Programming Language, Second Edition, is the definitive reference for programmers who want to acquire an in-depth knowledge of C#.
