Beginning Visual C# 2010 (英语) 平装 – 2010年4月5日
KARLI WATSON is consultant at Infusion Development (www.infusion.com), a technology architect at Boost.net (www.boost.net), and a freelance IT specialist, author, and developer. For the most part, he immerses himself in .NET (in particular C# and lately WPF) and has written numerous books in the field for several publishers. He specializes in communicating complex ideas in a way that is accessible to anyone with a passion to learn, and spends much of his time playing with new technology to find new things to teach people about. During those (seemingly few) times where he isn’t doing the above, Karli will probably be wishing he was hurtling down a mountain on a snowboard. Or possibly trying to get his novel published. Either way, you’ll know him by his brightly colored clothes. You can also find him tweeting online at www.twitter.com/karlequin, and maybe one day he’ll get around to making himself a website. Karli authored chapters 1 through 14, 21, 25 and 26.
CHRISTIAN NAGEL is a Microsoft Regional Director and Microsoft MVP, an associate of Thinktecture, and owner of CN Innovation. He is a software architect and developer who offers training and consulting on how to developMicrosoft .NET solutions. He looks back on more than 25 years of software development experience. Christian started his computing career with PDP 11 and VAX/VMS systems, covering a variety of languages and platforms. Since 2000, when .NET was just a technology preview, he has been working with various .NET technologies to build numerous .NET solutions. With his profound knowledge of Microsoft technologies, he has written numerous .NET books, and is certified as a Microsoft Certified Trainer and Professional Developer. Christian speaks at international conferences such as TechEd and Tech Days, and started INETA Europe to support .NET user groups. You can contact Christian via his web sites, www.cninnovation.com and www.thinktecture.com and follow his tweets on www.twitter.com/christiannagel. Christian wrote chapters 17 through 20.
JACOB HAMMER PEDERSEN is a Senior Application Developer at Elbek& Vejrup. He just about started programming when he was able to spell the word ‘BASIC’, which, incidentally is the first programming language he ever used. He started programming the PC in the early ’90s, using Pascal but soon changed his focus to C++, which still holds his interest. In the mid ’90s his focus changed again, this time to Visual Basic. In the summer of 2000 he discovered C# and has been happily exploring it ever since. Primarily working on the Microsoft platforms, his other expertise includes MS Office development, SQL Server, COM and Visual Basic.Net.
A Danish citizen, Jacob works and lives in Aarhus, Denmark. He authored chapters 15, 16, and 22.
JON D. REID is a software engineering manager atMetrix LLC, an ISV of field service management software for the Microsoft environment. He has co-authored a variety .NET books, including Beginning Visual C# 2008, Beginning C# Databases: From Novice to Professional, Pro Visual Studio .NET, and many others. Jon wrote chapters 23 and 24.
MORGAN SKINNER began his computing career at a young age on the Sinclair ZX80 at school, where he was underwhelmed by some code a teacher had written and so began programming in assembly language. Since then he’s used all sorts of languages and platforms, including VAX Macro Assembler, Pascal, Modula2, Smalltalk, X86 assembly language, PowerBuilder, C/C++, VB, and currently C# (of course). He’s been programming in .NET since the PDC release in 2000, and liked it so much he joined Microsoft in 2001. He now works in premier support for developers and spends most of his time assisting customers with C#. Morgan wrapped up the book by authoring chapter 27. You can reach Morgan at www.morganskinner.com.

Now by cutting all BS aside let me get to the point.
The book starts out good but then there are moments in the book where writer leaves me confused. The most problem I had was with Collections and Generics chapter. It turns out the collection itself are not that difficult as the examples make it so. The point I would like to make is not everyone in computer science or programming has a strong roots in mathematics so writer should avoid using Vectors or other mathematical examples to explain the concepts of programming. For example, in Generics chapter when writer was trying to explain the IComparable<T> and IComparer<T> along with 2 delegates, Comparing<T> and Predicate<T> he used the example of Vectors... which confused the heck out of me..
I understand delegates as they can store the reference to methods of matching signature and but when I was trying to look the .Net exposed generics delegates... it became so confusing... not because of delegates syntax but because of mathematical example that was picked to show that.
It rather should have been simple to say,
Comparing<T> sorter = new Comparing<T>(ClassExample.Compare);
Predicate<T> search = new Comparing<T>(ClassExample.Search)
instead of intimidating with lines like following...
Comparison<Vector> sorter = new Comparison<Vector>(VectorDelegates.Compare);
Vectors topRightQuadrantRoute = new Vectors(route.FindAll.(searcher));
seriously its get the reader focus on understanding the context of example instead of understanding the simple delegate syntax or purpose here. That is not the only thing.. it goes in defining logic for prime numbers and so on ... so too much focus on mathematical examples and algorithms takes you away from understanding the context..
I am learning C# because I want to learn ASP.Net ... my intention is no where to build mathematical, geometrical, algebra or calculus programs.... so I don't need all that ... I just need the writer to tell me the basic syntax in simple examples so I can apply it in my own code...
I am hoping this type of things will cut down in the future versions so the book can be equally helpful to everyone... instead of just for someone who is good at mathematics... it is a false concept that you have to be a good mathematician to be a programmer...
The second issue I have is that one can tell that this book is written by multiple authors. Some of the chapters and explanations are crystal clear, yet others are WORDY and the author's implementation of the english language makes difficult topics even more cloudy. You might have to ready certain sentences five or six times to make head or tails of the message he/she is trying to convey.
The book has overall solid chapters but the two previous issues are large enough to spoil it for me however.
I liken learning a programming language to learning how to add and subtract for the first time in my life. It feels abstract, it is abstract. You'll feel like you'll never be able to understand it, that it will always be an uphill battle. You'll hate yourself for the entire first quarter of the book. But trust me when I say, before you even see the light at the end of the tunnel, you'll be blinded by it. Just as you feel you're about to give up, you'll begin to understand everything at an exponential pace. It will just make sense. You'll look at earlier lessons like you do 1+1 and wonder how you ever could have been confused or lost.
The first half of the book is dedicated to the C# language. You get a fairly complete introduction to the language itself and some general program flow logic. The material is well presented and should be easily picked up by beginners. The second half of the book dedicates itself to writing applications for Windows, the web and introduces technologies such as LINQ and Windows Presentation Foundation. These chapters are far from complete as these topics simply demand, and have, generated books unto themselves. The chapters do serve as a solid introduction and can get you well on your way to programming using all of them.
In programming books, the quality of the code is often the biggest obstacle. Often, shortcuts are taken to ease explanation or for time constraints or is simply of poor quality. The code for this book, available from the publishers website, does a pretty good job in quality and completeness. The chapter exercises do well to reinforce topic and should provide good practice for anyone working through the material.
If you're more advanced and just learning this as a new language, you can skim through the things that appear fairly obvious and not miss anything key, and get to the meat of the topic with little problem.
If you're someone like me who has been coding since Applesoft Basic, but has occasional gaps in some of the newer concepts, it's really easy to skim through and stop at the areas that are obviously new.
It's clear, well-thought out, and well-written.
WROX books are rarely a dissapointment to me, however, so none of this is surprising. They are an excellent publisher and take great care in producing quality products.
