Sebastopol, CA—You want to learn C# programming, but you're not sure you want to suffer through another tedious technical book. You're in luck: Head First C# (O'Reilly Media, $49.99 USD) introduces this language in a fun, visual way. You'll quickly learn everything from creating your first program to learning sophisticated coding skills with C# 4.0, Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4, while avoiding common errors that frustrate many students.

The second edition offers several hands-on labs along the way to help you build and test programs using skills you've learned up to that point. In the final lab, you'll put everything together. From objects to garbage collection and from exceptions to interactions, you'll learn C# in a way that engages and entertains your brain.

Here are a few of the topics you'll learn:

Praise for the First Edition of Head First C#
"Although the book will be of most value to newer programmers, experienced C# programmers will find topics of interest and perhaps even some language details and analysis that they have never previously encountered."
—Michael J. Ross, Slashdot.org

"Head First C# is absolutely the best introduction to the C# language for C# beginners."
—Will Wagers, C# Online
