Hello,
I want to know that whether the book targets for java developers only or is
this meant for the programmers from different programming language.

Presently I am an ASP.Net programmmer.

Is there any way the book can help me in my field....

If you read the book's description from Amazon, for example, it clearly says "language-agnostic advice that's relevant to all developers", implying that the content should be relevant for you regardless of whether you're programming Java or VB.

Reading the second review from the same Amazon page reveals more information:
The author comes from a C language background and uses this for the examples, but - even though VB is my particular language of choice - I didn't find the use of C to be a problem at all. The examples are generally quite short and the logic or the point being made is always clear to see.

The book is "language-agnostic". It's about "programming" not about a single "programming language".

Most of the code examples are written in a C-family language (like, C, C++, Java, or C#) but Code Craft is in no way restricted to covering just these languages.

Hello,
I have read the "Book Description" and the "From Back Cover description" from the Amazon site.
But I want to know:
**.Does the book covers the Object oriented aspect with the Procedural (Data types, statements[for, switch....]) one or it deals more with the procedural part of the language?

Hi Prithiraj,

Code Craft dicsusses both object oriented design techniques and procedural techniques. Where appropriate, it makes very clear the advantages of certain OO idioms in your code design.

Hope that answers your question.

Thanks for the reply.
Also minutes ago I read chapter 6.
The things which allures me is the attitude in the writings.
The writings are simple and very new. And each of topic is well analysed.
I am in my final year of B.Tech and doing project in ASP.net under a reputed company. I hope that the book will work fine for the upcoming Programmers.
I dont have any Questions. But I felt that a section of Questions should be increased. And the Questions should deal with Pseudo codes(language-agnostic) which will challenge the reader's coding skill.
