This book provides comprehensive coverage of the C# language, going beyond a tutorial and offering a foundation upon which you can begin effective software development projects.
For readers already familiar with C#, this book provides insight into some of the more complex programming paradigms and provides in-depth coverage of the features introduced in the latest version of the language, C# 7.0 and .NET Framework X.Y and .NET Core 1.X.
It is both a tutorial and a reference that can be used for many years.
What it is not: This is a comprehensive book about C# the language. It is NOT a book about .NET or about any specific frameworks that use C#. It's a book about the C# language itself. It also clearly points out what C# features are in/from the different versions of C#.
Essential C# 7.0 is a well-organized, no-fluff guide to the latest versions of C# for programmers at all levels of experience. Updated to reflect new C# 7.0 features and patterns, it will help you write C# code that’s simple, powerful, robust, secure, and maintainable.
This book’s authors are world-class C# experts: long-time Microsoft MVP and Regional Director Mark Michaelis and Eric Lippert, formerly principal developer on Microsoft’s C# compiler team. Together, they cover the entire language, illustrating key constructs with succinct examples and offering a complete foundation for successful C# development.
Essential C# 7.0 makes it easy to program with any version of C#, whether you’re creating new code or maintaining existing systems.
