Drawing from many years of professional software development and teaching experience, I prepared an innovative text that presents the C# language in a simple, yet powerful way, at the same time integrating Biblical perspective.
Few textbooks address the simplicity of C#, many are unable to address the complexity of real-world systems, and few if any have attempted to integrate faith with content to prepare students and new programmers for the workplace. This textbook has three goals. The first is to arm the Christian student with Scripture compatible with business-oriented programming, that they may be able witnesses for Christ. The second is to present C# in all its simplicity, that it may be a joy to use. The third is to present a realistic prototype system so students can be prepared for good works in their business endeavors. Software applications illustrating major concepts in each chapter are available electronically via a link in the text. These can be used as is, or tailored to suit a variety of information processing applications.
Having started using BASIC in the late 1970s, then Visual Basic in the 1990s before Visual Studio existed, then Visual Studio first with C++ and now C# and VB, it has been my experience that computer languages are both similar and consistent in what they accomplish on all varieties of computer platforms. Visual Studio was used to test all code. Be sure to reference the latest C# language reference, along with product manuals for your specific version of Visual Studio, as you add to your knowledge where the text leaves off.
I have found it a great joy to develop this text under the influence and leading of the Holy Spirit of God, and count it a privilege to present it to you.
