Description & Features

Written for introductory programming courses for information systems, Fundamentals of C# Programming for Information Systems provides a solid foundation for building business and other real-world applications. The book discusses programming concepts in the context of familiar practical applications that use graphical user interfaces. Philip employs ample illustrations and examples to support his comprehensive, patient explanations. Hands-on tutorials for Microsoft Visual Studio help students apply and explore what they learn.

Key Features:

  • Thorough coverage of C# fundamentals, databases, collections, and GUI, with an introduction to object-oriented programming.
  • Organization of material supports flexible course design from selection and sequencing of topics to depth and pacing of coverage.
  • End-of-chapter review questions and exercises enhance student interest and learning.
  • Instructors benefit from slide decks, a test bank, and tutorial keys.

  • Four added chapters make the book suitable for a two-course sequence:
    • Two chapters present the concepts and practice of object-oriented programming, including inheritance; and
    • Two chapters introduce web applications development.
