Item description for C#.net Web Developer's Guide (With CD-ROM) by Saurabh Nandu dotthatcom.com...
Microsoft's C# ("C sharp") is a modern, object-oriented programming language built from the ground up to exploit the power of XML-based Web services on Microsoft's new .NET platform. With its Visual C++ development system heritage, C# will enable millions of C and C++ developers to use existing skills to rapidly build sophisticated XML-based .NET applications. Why Will Web Developers Switch to C#? ...Because it's the ideal solution for C and C++ programmers who need to combine rapid development with the power to access all the functionality of the Microsoft.NET platform. They want an environment that is completely in sync with emerging Web standards and one that provides easy integration with existing applications. C#.net Web Developer's Guide will enhance developer productivity and help them eliminate programming errors that can lead to increased development costs. This book teaches Web developers to quickly and easily build solutions for the Microsoft .NET platform. Web developers will learn to use C# components to build Web services and applications that are available across the Internet, from any application running on any platform.

Reviews - What do customers think about C#.net Web Developer's Guide (With CD-ROM)?
Useful IF you are the right audience, otherwise skip it Jan 4, 2005
While C# programming is not the focus of this book I did find it quite useful as a learning vehicle for advanced .NET topics and as a companion book to a C# Language reference. For all you programmers I liken it to asking the resident guru how to do something who invariable responds with an answer that is more or less but never precisely what you actually need. With that in mind the book is similar and thus compels you to debug or fill in the gaps for the missing or non-working program logic. One thing for sure you for prerequisites you are well advised to have a decent background of Visual Studio .NET, C/C++, Threads, and Sockets programming too. Without these core understanding I suspect the gaps will be quite difficult to fill.
With that said if you are just looking for heaps of boilerplate code or functional snippets there are plenty of websites you can Google with downloadable source code you can learn from.
It is dissappointing nonetheless tha publisher decided NOT to provide the Sample program updates. For $49 bucks multiplied by the units sold, it would seem a pretty simple proposition.
Poor efforts Mar 16, 2003
This book I though would give me inside out of the C#. However, half of the book is filled with excerpts of the full source code that is available on the CD. I tried an example code in Chapter 5 that creates a TCPClient, it did not work. The website [website] where the member area is located, doesn't contain any usefull links rather update your profile. While registering, the website gave a SQL Server ODBC error that it could not save the record. However strangely I received confirmation e-mail even after the ODBC error occured. Overall, I am not satisfied with this book. Its just waste of money.
Another fine example of textbook padding to generate sales Aug 5, 2002
This text is meant as a general overview of the .net framework but it also delves into source code to provide more detailed examples. Unfortunately, this only serves to confuse the reader as many of the examples are not cohesive or clearly explained. There is little benefit in smearing examples over half the textbook if you are not going to take the time to explain them properly. It seems as this was a rush to market product where the examples only serve to make the book thicker. The authors should have made up their minds initially if the text was meant to be an overview or a detailed "how-to" book.
Details are missing May 16, 2002
For topics that I am not familiar with I feel that a lot of details are missing. As such I read the new topic's chapter up to 4 times to ultimately feel that I need another source. As such I consider this book to be a good reference book.
On a more positive note the examples that the book gives are abundant and could serve as a starting point for your own development.
Great Overview May 2, 2002
This book is an excellent introduction to many topics including the .net framework, VS.net IDE, Windows Forms, Remoting, MSMQ, ADO.net, ASP.net, Web services and more. There is also a 60 or so page chapter on C# programming. This book was published before VS.net was released and all the references are made to the beta. The writing style is very clear and the book is an easy read. Each chapter has a summary of key concepts as well as a short FAQ section at the end. The code examples are all in C# of course. This book is best suited as an introduction to .net technologies for an already at least moderately-savvy professional. This book will not make you a .net guru ready to jump and develop .net enterprise solutions. But it will help you understand all the new "buzz words" and explain key concepts. After reading this book, it will be a lot easier to understand which book you need to pick up next to get into the details. This is also not the best book for a total beginner. A lot of knowledge is already assumed. A lot of differences are pointed out between asp and asp.net for example, or between C# and C++. A person with previous knowledge in these areas will benefit from there comparisons but they will only help confuse someone who is just trying to grasp everything from scratch. All in all, I think this is a great book - books like this are needed, in that they give a great overview and don't spend 500 pages exhausting one particular topic when you just wanted to know the basics and put all the pieces together. Anyone who buys this book with this in mind will not be dissappointed.
