Microsoft Press are publishing the latest book by best selling author John Sharp, "Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Step By Step". This book replaces previous editions of John's hugely successful C# Step By Step books and includes coverage of the many new features recently added to the C# language. John is an experienced developer and technical trainer, a background which goes some way to explaining his success as an author.

John Sharp, a UK Principal Technologist with Content Master said "The latest updates to the C# language have added significant capabilities to the language, making it incredibly powerful. For example, it is now possible to perform enterprise operations such as database access without having to learn new APIs. The addition of extension methods, lambda expressions, and anonymous types show that C# is evolving rapidly, and can meet the requirements of the most demanding applications."

John has been working with C# since its earliest days, and authored Microsoft's first public training course on the language. John is an experienced developer and acknowledged expert on Microsoft technologies. He is a well known IT trainer and is also the author of other successful Microsoft Press books, including Microsoft Windows Communication Foundation Step By Step.
