C# in Depth - Second Edition concentrates on the high-value features that make C# such a powerful and flexible development tool. Rather than re-hashing the core of C# that's essentially unchanged since it hit the scene nearly a decade ago, this book brings you up to speed with the features and practices that have changed with C# from version 2.0 onwards.

Building on the bestselling first edition, it adds new examples, more labs, and deeper explanations of important features. You’ll learn how to traverse HTML documents, handle events, perform animations, and add Ajax to your web pages. The book's unique "lab pages" anchor the explanation of each new concept in a practical example. You'll learn how jQuery interacts with other tools and frameworks and how to build jQuery plugins. This book requires a modest knowledge of JavaScript and Ajax.
