Book Summary : Murachs C# 2015
Who this book is for
This book is for anyone who wants to learn how to use C# 2015 to develop Windows Forms applications.

    It works if you’re new to programming.
    It works if you’re new to Microsoft’s .NET development environment.
    It works if you’re an experienced .NET developer who’s new to C#.
    It works if you have programming experience with another language like Java, C++, or COBOL.
    And it works if you’ve already read 3 or 4 other C# books and still don’t know how to develop a real-world business application.

Why this is the C# book that you should buy first

This is a great first book in C#, whether you’re a programming novice or an experienced programmer. What follows are 5 reasons why that’s true.

But what if you’ve already read 3 or 4 other C# books and still don’t know how to build a professional C# application? Then these 5 reasons point out what you’ve been missing and why this is the right book for you, too.

#1: A FAST start, coupled with Visual Studio productivity

This book starts you off using all the best features of Visual Studio so you can begin productive work almost immediately. In fact, it has you create a simple business application in chapters 2 and 3 so you can see right away how the core features of C# and of Visual Studio work.

#2: Object-oriented programming made clear
When it comes to object-oriented programming, too many C# books resort to whimsical but useless metaphors, like illustrating objects by creating animal classes such as mammals, cats, and dogs. Then, they leave it up to you to figure out how to transfer these concepts to business applications.

In contrast, this book presents business objects such as customers, invoices, and products so you can see how OOP is used to create multi-tiered applications in the real world.

#3: Confidence in handling business requirements
Learning to use C# classes and OOP techniques isn’t enough. You also have to know how to code for the tasks that are required in most business applications.

That’s why this book builds on your skills in incremental steps to teach you how to validate data; handle numeric, date, and string data; work with loops, arrays, and collections; code methods and event handlers; handle exceptions; and work with text, binary, and XML data.

#4: A solid grounding in database programming

You can’t create business applications without handling databases.

So this book teaches you how to create database applications using C# tools like data sources and data-handling controls that are designed for rapid application development and prototyping. It includes introductions to ADO.NET coding and the Entity Framework that give you more control over database processing than what the RAD tools offer. And it introduces you to LINQ, a feature that lets you query almost any data structure…not just databases…using the C# language.

This is powerful stuff that’s glossed over in most other C# books.

#5: Real-world applications tie it all together
This book presents complete, non-trivial applications that illustrate what you need to know on the job. Studying applications like these is the key to mastering C# development, but you won’t find them in many other C# books.

What’s new in this 2015 edition
C# is a mature product. So the basics of developing Windows applications using C# and Visual Studio haven’t changed.

Still, there are always new features to cover and improvements to make in each edition of our book! So we’ve:
    added material on new 2015 features, including Live Code Analysis, CodeLens, expression-bodied functions, interpolated strings, and the null-conditional operator
    added coverage of lambda expressions, a subject that was missing from earlier editions of the book
    added a chapter on the Entity Framework
    dropped the chapter on Windows 8 programming
    updated the material throughout and tested all the applications so you know they work in VS 2015

What software you need for this book
The appendix in the book shows you how to install Visual Studio 2015, regardless of the edition you choose.
Option #1: Team editions of Visual Studio 2015
The Professional Edition and the Enterprise Edition of Visual Studio 2015 are designed for teams of developers. So they include custom options for that market and are priced accordingly.
As you’d expect, both these editions come with everything you need to develop Windows Forms applications with C# 2015. That includes the Visual Studio development environment, version 4.6 of the Microsoft .NET Framework, C# 2015, and a simplified version of SQL Server called SQL Server Express LocalDB.
Option #2: Free Community Edition
If you’re learning C# on your own, you can download the Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition for free from Microsoft’s website. It provides everything you need to develop the applications shown in this book, including the Visual Studio development environment, version 4.6 of the Microsoft .NET Framework, C# 2015, and SQL Server Express LocalDB.
If you use this edition, you’ll find that it has just a few minor differences from the Professional Edition of Visual Studio that is the basis for this book. These differences don’t affect how you develop applications with Visual Studio, though. So all of the skills you learn and all of the applications you develop with the Community Edition will still work with the other editions of Visual Studio.
