Default 2nd Edition coming

I am working on a second edition of this book and it should be ready sometime in Sept of this year. For the first time, an Instructor's pack will be available for those teachers who use the text in a classroom setting.

The major changes are the addition of two new chapters on an intro to web programming and one other on threading, versioning, and reflection. While the existing chapters have been updated, one of the major differences is that the database chapter now uses Microsoft's SQL Server Express as the takeoff point rather than Access. I've also tried to improve the narrative to answer some of the "fuzzy points" that appeared in this blog.

Many of you may be asking: Is this new edition worth buying if I already own the current edition? While I would like to sell all of you another book, the truth is that, if you already know C# and are comfortable with it, it's probably not worth buying it again...it's too much like the first. If you're new to C#, I do hope you'll give it consideration.

Thanks for you support in the past...it has helped make this new edition a better book.
