Clear, Friendly, and Approachable Introduction to Visual C# Programming

Clear, friendly, and approachable, this Fourth Edition of Starting Out With Visual C# is an ideal beginning text for readers with no programming experience. Detailed walk-throughs and a readable, comprehensible style make the text inviting to new programmers, while numerous practical example programs highlight the most important programming topics. Gaddis’s detailed, step-by-step instructions teach a GUI-based approach that motivates readers with familiar graphical elements. Topics are examined progressively in each chapter, with objects taught before classes. The Fourth Edition has been completely updated for Visual Studio 2015 and contains new sections on debugging, accessing controls on different forms, and auto-properties.
