91.550 Multi-Touch Computing, Spring 2011 Written by Amanda Courtemanche – Fall 2009 Book Recommendations In OS304, there is a reference library for the class. It contains the books listed below, plus a few others. C# Language If you are an experienced programmer with several languages under your belt, and you get tired or annoyed with the fluff inherent in traditional programming language textbooks, read C# 3.0 In a Nutshell, Joseph and Ben Albahari (O'Reilly). This book conveys a lot of information very quickly, clearly, and concisely. However, it does not delve into applied technologies such as WPF, GDI+, ADO.NET, etc. It stays within the core C# framework. If you prefer a full language textbook, read Pro C# 2008 and the .NET 3.5 Platform (Fourth Edition), Andrew Troelsen (Apress). This is a large textbook and it does contain a good amount of introductory material, but it is written well and is pleasant to read. It also does delve into applied technologies and .NET base class libraries.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
