Get to work quickly with C# with a uniquely succinct and visual format used to present the C# 7.0 language. Whether you’re getting to grips with C# for the first time or working to deepen your understanding, you’ll find this book to be a clear and refreshing take on each aspect of the language.

Figures are of prime importance in this book. While teaching programming seminars, Daniel Solis found that he could almost watch the light bulbs going on over the students’ heads as he drew the figures on the whiteboard. In this text, he has distilled each important concept into simple but accurate illustrations. For this latest edition, Dan is joined by fellow experienced teacher and programmer, Cal Schrotenboer, to bring you the very latest C# language features, along with an understanding of the frameworks it most often lives in: .NET and the new .NET Core.

For something as intricate and precise as a programming language, there must be text as well as figures. But rather than long, wordy explanations, the authors use short, concise descriptions and bullet lists to make each important piece of information visually distinct and memorable.

What You’ll Learn

  • Start with an overview of C# programming and how the language works under the hood
  • Put things in context with a little useful history of C# and .NET
  • Know how .NET Core fits into the picture
  • Understand how C# handles types
  • Benefit from clear, concise explanations of each language feature, from classes and inheritance to enumerators and iterators, and the new C# 7.0 tuples
  • Quickly access material via this book's visual introduction to asynchronous programming with C#

Who This Book Is For

Novice to intermediate C# programmers, and more experienced programmers moving to C# from other languages

Daniel Solis is a contract software engineer who has worked for a number of high-profile clients, including Microsoft Consulting Services, IBM, Lockheed Martin, and PeopleSoft. He has been programming and teaching object-oriented languages and development methods throughout the U.S. and Europe since the early days of C++. It was while teaching numerous seminars on various programming languages that he realized the immense power of diagrams in explaining programming language concepts.

Cal Schrotenboer has been programming professionally for over 20 years, initially with Visual Basic but later with C#. Cal has worked as a contractor throughout this period, initially on small direct contracts and eventually graduating to enterprise level contracts with Novartis, Instron, and 21st Century Fox. 

For 10 years Cal taught classes over the entire range of .NET subjects (WPF, WCF, Expression Blend, Silverlight, ADO) at Foothill Community College in Los Altos Hills, California. During this period, he also taught MCSE type (Windows Server) classes at Mission Community College in Santa Clara, California as well as other programming related classes at De Anza Community College in Cupertino, California, Skyline Community College in San Bruno California, and Evergreen Community College in San Jose, California. 

Cal’s current position with the Fox Networks Group at 21st Century Fox involves all of the technologies which he taught for many years at Foothill College. Because this position is 100% remote, it can be performed from anywhere in the world with a satisfactory Internet connection. This has given Cal the opportunity to move to a new country every three to five months, advancing him on his quest to visit all the countries in the world. While scoring/counting systems vary, he is generally over 75% at this point.
