C# 5.0 Unleashed is for anyone who wants to learn the C# programming language in depth, understanding how language features truly work. While giving you those insights, you learn where and how to use the features to design various kinds of software. This book not only teaches the language’s capabilities, it also looks behind the scenes to build a solid foundation to aid you in understanding the .NET platform as a whole.
Bart De Smet offers exceptional insight into the features of both the language and Microsoft’s broader framework. He doesn’t just cover the “what” and “how” of effective C# programming: He explains the “why,” so you can consistently choose the right language and platform features, maximizing your efficiency and effectiveness.
The early chapters introduce the .NET platform, the tooling ecosystem, and the C# programming language, followed by in-depth coverage of the C# programming language itself, with immediate application of language features. The last chapters give an overview of the .NET Framework libraries about which every good developer on the platform should know.
&> C# 5.0 Unleashed is for anyone who wants to really learn the C# programming language in depth, and understand how its features truly work. You’ll learn where and how to use the language’s features to solve diverse problems and design each kind of software. Pioneering Microsoft software expert Bart De Smet takes you behind the scenes, giving you a rock-solid foundation for understanding both the WinRT and .NET platforms, so you can take full advantage of C# 5.0, consistently choose the right language and platform features, and maximize your efficiency and effectiveness as a developer.
De Smet begins with focused and up-to-date introductions to the .NET platform, Microsoft’s tooling ecosystem (including the new Visual Studio 2012), and Microsoft’s newest version of C#. Next, he presents in-depth coverage of C# 5.0’s features, demonstrating them through realistic code examples. De Smet then turns to WinRT, Windows 8, and async programming, showing how to take full advantage of Microsoft’s newest platforms and innovations.
Includes access code for free eBook version, including EPUB, PDF, and MOBI formats.
