Tutorial number: 29

C# is the object-oriented cornerstone for development in Microsoft's .NET architecture. It's easy to learn C# itself, especially if you're familiar with Java, C++, or other OO languages. This tutorial will introduce the syntax of C#, exposing the design philosophies behind the language, and will show how C# nestles within the .NET Framework. We'll see an overview of the .NET Framework Class Library and the benefits of the Common Language Runtime (including garbage collection). We'll also see how C# supports ASP.NET and ADO.NET for web and database development. Finally, we'll take a look at what's coming in C# 2.0.

Beginner: Prerequisites: Participants must be familiar with object-oriented programming concepts. Familiarity with Microsoft .Net, C# is useful but not essential.
