Default C#, C++ examples

It is a great shame the examples in this book are in Java. Why not C# or even C++ would be better than Java. Sure you can still follow it but its a real pain to have to keep translating into C# all the time. Will Wrox post C# transaltion to the site?

Better is pretty subjective. I mean it'd be better for C# programmers, but not for perl programmers! Java seems to be a not unreasonable choice given its widespread use. Course it'd be cool for me if they did a ruby flavoured one!

A suiting quote, “Once a programmer realizes that programming principles transcend the syntax of any specific language, the doors swing open to knowledge that truly makes a difference in quality and productivity.” - Steve McConnell, from the book Code Complete

We had thought of re-doing some of the examples in ruby. Needless to say the code would be far more concise. If there was a greater interest I would seriously consider it.

Cheers,

Simon
