Book Review - CSharp for Sharp Kids

Using real-world analogies, Martin Dreyer does a great job of explaining the introductory concepts of C# & OOP to absolute beginners in the free E-Book C# for Sharp Kids. The 2.9 MB MSI file, containing the E-Book in MS Word format & code samples, can be downloaded from the Kid's Corner of MSDN's Beginner Developer Learning Center. The code samples are expected to run with Visual C# 2005 Express Edition but you can get it to work on a newer version of the Express Edition as well.

Although this text is targeted at young developers (aged between 12-16), it is equally good for folks of any age wanting to learn about programming with C#. Spread across 5 parts & about 165 pages, it is light-hearted & filled with meaningful cartoons. Here are a couple of samples -





Once readers finish the book, they will be able to build simple Console & Windows applications. It will also whet their appetite to know more about C#.

I highly recommend this book to those starting to learn programming with C#. What's more, it's free as well.
