A slim introduction to the C# language, aimed at readers who are already familiar with the concepts of object-oriented programming languages.
C# is quite similar to Java. The primary differences from Java are:
Judging by my quick reading of this book, C# is a fairly nice system-level programming language. It's a bit more Pythonic in some ways than Java, and I'd prefer programming in C# slightly over programming in Java. However, C# currently requires a massive environment to run in -- the .NET framework on Windows, and hypothetically Mono on Unix -- and that's a big black mark against it, so it's unlikely I'll ever use it.
