Building C# Applications

  • Andrew Troelsen
  • Philip Japikse


As a C# programmer, you can choose from among numerous tools to build .NET applications. The tool (or tools) you select will be based primarily on three factors: any associated costs, the OS you are using to develop the software, and the computing platforms you are targeting. The point of this chapter is to provide a survey of the most common integrated development environments (IDEs) that support the C# language. Do understand that this chapter will not go over every single detail of each IDE; it will give you enough information to select your programming environment as you work through this text and give you a foundation to build on.
