About this book

A Programmer’s Guide to C# 5.0 is a book for software developers who want to truly understand C#. Whether you’ve worked with C# before or with another general-purpose programming language, each fast-paced, focused chapter will take you straight to the heart of a feature of C# and show you why it works the way it does.

Written by one-time C# Test Lead, Program Manager, and member of the original C# language design team, this book is an ideal companion to the C# Language Specification, and works both as a tutorial and as a reference guide. Now in its fourth edition, you will find up-to-date coverage of all the latest C# features, including Linq, covariance and contravariance, and async support.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Use C# features effectively, in the way they were intended
  • Apply the newest C# features to your coding problems
  • Streamline your database code using LINQ
  • Use async support and the task parallel library to improve performance.
  • Program more efficiently, effectively, and with real insight into this mature and exciting language, with A Programmer’s Guide to C# 5.0.
