Apply your expertise to the .NET Framework with the guidance of programming expert Jeffrey Richter—on video, through his award-winning book, and with a set of posters containing complete, at-a-glance reference to .NET Framework Class Library namespace details. Richter is well-known to the developer community as an author, an instructor, and a contributing editor for MSDN® Magazine. He has been consulting with the .NET Framework team at Microsoft since 1999, and is the cofounder of Wintellect, a premier training, debugging, and consulting firm. This must-have collection includes Richter’s highly respected Applied Microsoft .NET Framework Programming book, which describes .NET Framework architecture, the common language runtime, and core types in the .NET Framework Class Library—deftly presenting the concepts, insights, and examples needed to begin developing robust, .NET Framework–based applications.

You can experience Richter in action through his video lecture on Exception Handling, which covers implicit assumptions about Exceptions, key benefits of exception handling, and tips for managing unhandled exceptions with Windows® Forms, Web Forms, and XML Web services.

You also get the .NET Framework 1.1 Class Library poster pack—four, full-color wall posters that clearly display the namespace details essential to every developer working with the .NET Framework—including System, System.Web, System.XML, System.Data, System.Windows.Forms, and System.Drawing.

Each poster provides an easy-to-scan class derivation hierarchy of the most useful types, a comprehensive list of value types, an interface cross-reference map, and more. Together, this collection delivers the hands-on resources you need to advance your expertise—and your productivity—with the .NET Framework.

Review:

Applied Microsoft .NET Framework Programming is a tutorial. It's meant for programmers who already know an object-oriented language and want to apply their knowledge in the standardized environment provided by the Microsoft .NET Framework. The book, written by Jeffrey Richter, a programmer and the .NET columnist at Microsoft's magazine for its developer community, takes a more or less language-agnostic approach to the run-time environment (though many illustrative examples are in C#). It aims to untangle the Common Language Runtime (CLR) and some of the Framework Class Library (FCL), and generally succeeds, particularly at the former. Richter shares his knowledge of the key classes you can instantiate in the CLR, and the kinds of operations you can perform on and with them.

You can read this book, or individual chapters, from beginning to end. You'll probably find it more helpful, though, if you read individual sections as you encounter problems or develop an interest in specific aspects of the CLR (ideal for those middle-of-the-night "I wonder how it does..." questions). Richter typically lets his code do most of the talking, and he'll often introduce a section with a prose summary of the CLR way of doing something (sometimes with a supplementary diagram) before unleashing a string of quick examples that illustrate variations on the theme. In an unusual and helpful tutorial move, he makes heavy use of the ILDASM utility to show what goes on at compile time. --David Wall

Topics covered: How the Microsoft .NET Framework--in other words, the Common Language Runtime (CLR) and parts of the Framework Class Library (FCL)--runs Microsoft .NET applications, and how to write software for the framework. Shared assemblies, characteristics of CLR types (including their properties, methods, fields, and events), and object orientation all get ample coverage. There's particularly detailed information on text manipulation (including internationalization and localization), arrays, custom interfaces, and the managed environment (garbage collection) in the CLR environment.
