weight that a CV with C# exposure would command! Think for yourself. You may know of people who have struck lucky in getting a job. But when it comes to keeping it, Lady Luck is powerless.Indeed, technology is ruthless, in that, it breaks across all age and seniority barriers. That's thereason why even a teenager could have as much experience with a new technology as a 40-year-old. Unfair, but true.
Who should read this book?
Anyone wanting to be on the cutting edge of new technology. The book is written assuming no prior programming knowledge on the part of the readers. However, we make certain other assumptions that we shall explain now.Many a times, on a clear night when we look up at the stars, we can't help but wonder whether there is intelligent life out there - or are they just like us?For we don't believe that intellect is a quality that we are born with. In fact we are going to sharea secret with you. It is the secret of success given to us by an old gypsy woman. This magicmantra has worked with many and we assume you would also use it in your life. In fact this isthe only assumption we make in this book.The secret is in persistence - nothing in the world can take place of persistence. Talent will not,nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not, unrewardedgenius is almost a proverb. Education will not, the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistenceand determination alone are omnipotent. We hope you agree with the old gypsy apply the maximwhile learning C#. Now, the mere fact that you are reading this means that you are interested in learning somethingnew. However, there is a great deal of difference between a person who wants to read a book andthe person who just wants a book to read. We hope you belong to the former category.Though we attempt to infuse a certain degree of humour in our writing, please do not buy this book for its jokes. This is no coffee table book or even bedtime reading. This is a book, amedium, which we hope will do the serious job of teaching the reader a new programminglanguage.And how do we propose to go about it? Just like when you eat, no matter how delicious the foodin front of you is, you have to consume it, one mouthful at a time. You just cannot eat it all atonce, can you?Similarly, when learning, it is always better to take small steps - one concept at a time.Sometimes, we even repeat the same concept several times, in different ways. For we firmly believe that if you do the little things well enough, big things will come to you asking to be done.
