Summary

C# in Depth, Third Edition updates the best-selling second edition to cover the new features of C# 5, including the challenges of writing maintainable asynchronous code. It preserves the uniquely insightful look into the tricky areas and dusty corners of C# that only expert Jon Skeet can provide.

About this Book

If you're a .NET developer, you'll use C# whether you're building an advanced enterprise application or just slamming out a quick app. In C# 5, you can do amazing things with generics, lambda expressions, dynamic typing, LINQ, iterator blocks, and other features. But first you have to learn it in depth.

C# in Depth, Third Edition has been thoroughly revised to cover the new features of C# 5, including the subtleties of writing maintainable asynchronous code. You'll see the power of C# in action, learning how to work with high-value features that you'll be glad to have in your toolkit. And you'll learn to avoid hidden pitfalls of C# programming with the help of crystal clear explanations of "behind the scenes" issues.

This book assumes you've digested your first C# book and are hungry for more!

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

Synopsis:

C# in Depth has become widely regarded as one of the best books in its field, focusing on C# as a language to provide an unparalleled level of detail. It explains not just what the language does, but also why it was designed that way.

C# in Depth, Third Edition has been updated and expanded to cover the new features in C# 5, such as asynchronous functions using the async/await keywords which provide greater support for asynchronous operations and improve the ability to write asynchronous code which is readable, robust, and maintainable. It expertly guides the reader through the details and gives a new level of clarity about how the language works and how to use it most effectively.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.
