Programming XML with C# is a book (65 pages) written in step-by-step tutorial format for beginners and students who want to learn XML programming using C# language. It is recommended that you have some programming experience using any of the object-oriented languages such as C++, Pascal, or Java. It is also recommended that you are familiar with C# language syntaxes and programming. If you are not a C# programmer, I recommend to read Programming C# for Beginners before this book.  This book can be found in C# Programming section of C# Corner.

In this book, you will learn the basic elements of XML and classes and objects available in .NET Framework to work with XML. After that, you will learn how to read, write, updated, and transform XML using C#. .NET also provides support for relationships between data (via ADO.NET) and XML. In this chapter, I also discuss how you can take advantages of classes found on ADO.NET and connect data with XML.
