C# 3.0 in a Nutshell: A Desktop Quick Reference (In a Nutshell)

C# 3.0 in a Nutshell: A Desktop Quick Reference (In a Nutshell) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a concise yet thorough reference to C# 3.0 programming as implemented in Microsoft's Visual Studio 2008. C# 3.0 in a Nutshell gets right to the point, covering the essentials of language syntax and usage as well as the parts of the .NET base class libraries you need to build working applications. But unlike earlier editions, this book is now organized entirely around concepts and use cases, providing greater depth and readability.

C# 3.0 introduces the most significant enhancements yet to the programming language, and C# 3.0 in a Nutshell delves deep into the subject while assuming minimal prior knowledge of C#-making it accessible to anyone with a reasonable background in programming. In addition to the language, the book covers the .NET CLR and the core Framework assemblies, along with the unified querying syntax called Language Integrated Query (LINQ), which bridges the traditional divide between programs and their data sources.

Free of clutter and long introductions, this book provides a map of C# 3.0 knowledge in a succinct and unified style:

  • Opening chapters concentrate purely on C#, starting with the basics of syntax, types and variables, and finishing with advanced topics such as unsafe code and preprocessor directives


  • Later chapters cover the core .NET 3.5 Framework, including such topics as LINQ, XML, collections, I/O and networking, memory management, reflection, attributes, security, threading, application domains and native interoperability


Designed as a handbook for daily use, C# 3.0 in a Nutshell is an ideal companion to any of the vast array of books that focus on an applied technology such as WPF, ASP.NET, or WCF. The areas of the language and .NET Framework that such books omit, this one covers in detail.

Synopsis:

Completely rewritten to encompass changes to the C# language, this concise and to-the-point edition covers the essentials of language syntax and usage as well as the parts of the .NET base class libraries that programmers need.

Synopsis:

Get a jump on C# 3.0 with this all-new edition of O'Reilly's classic C# 3.0 in a Nutshell. Completely rewritten to encompass changes to the C# language planned for the Orcas release of Visual Studio, this is the one reference experienced programmers will want to have at hand as they put its new features to work. Like previous editions, C# 3.0 in a Nutshell is concise and to the point, covering the essentials of language syntax and usage as well as the parts of the .NET base class libraries that programmers need to master to build working applications. Unlike previous editions, the detailed .NET class library reference has been replaced with more scenarios and morer usage examples for the many language and CLR features covered. Many chapters, such as those devoted to collections, I/O and streams and threading, have been completely rewritten, and new C# 3.0 topics have been added, including: Lambda expressions Query comprehensions Extension methods Object initializers Anonymous types Implicitly typed local variables Implicitly typed arrays Expression trees If you're the kind of programmer who can't wait for Orcas to begin testing the new capabilities of C#, buy this book and let authors Joe Albahari and Ben Albahari show you have to get productive, fast.
