C# is a general purpose, object-oriented, component-based programming language. As a general purpose language, there are a number of ways to apply C# to accomplish many different tasks. You can build web applications with ASP.NET, desktop applications with Windows Presentation Foundation, or build mobile applications for Windows Phone. Other applications include code that runs in the cloud via Windows Azure, and iOS, Android, and Windows Phone support with the Xamarin platform. With C# Succinctly by Joe Mayo, you will quickly learn the syntax you need to build your own C# applications.
