The professional programmer’s Deitel® guide to C# 6 and object-oriented development for Windows®
Written for programmers with a background in high-level language programming, this book applies the Deitel signature live-code approach to teaching programming and explores Microsoft’s C# 6 and .NET in depth. Concepts are presented in the context of 170+ fully coded and tested apps, complete with syntax shading, code highlighting, code walkthroughs, program outputs and hundreds of savvy software-development tips.
Start with an introduction to C# using an early classes and objects approach, then rapidly move on to more advanced topics, including LINQ, asynchronous programming with async and await and more. You’ll enjoy the treatment of object-oriented programming and an object-oriented design/UML® ATM case study, including a complete C# implementation. When you’ve mastered the book, you’ll be ready to start building industrial-strength, object-oriented C# apps.
COMMENTS FROM RECENT EDITIONS REVIEWERS
“Takes you from zero to the highest levels of C# programming proficiency, preparing you to tackle the most frequent requirements in modern software development. The code examples really shine. The best presentation of inheritance, interfaces and polymorphism I’ve seen in my 30+ years as a trainer and consultant. I like the early introduction to LINQ and .NET collections, and the coverage of LINQ to Entities for relational databases. Shows the techniques needed to develop real-world apps, including key topics, such as async and await.” —Octavio Hernandez, Microsoft Certified Solution Developer (MCSD), Principal Software Engineer at Advanced Bionics
“This book’s treatment of LINQ and PLINQ is excellent—I liked how it led naturally to functional programming idioms—skills that will serve professionals best for their future. Also, it was great to see performance testing on multicore systems.” —Lucian Wischik, C# Language Design Team, Microsoft
“The ultimate book on programming with Microsoft technologies.” —Kirill Osenkov, Visual Studio Languages Team, Microsoft
“Excellent introduction to the world of .NET for the beginning C# programmer, using the Deitels’ live-code approach and real-world examples.” —Bonnie Berent, Microsoft C# MVP
“Illustrates the best practices of C# programming. Teaches how to ‘program in the large,’ with material on object-oriented programming and software engineering principles.” —Mingsheng Hong, Cornell University
“I like the chapter on asynchronous programming with async and await—this is the future of programming, and making these types of tasks ‘easy’ to program is going to be key to any programming language. The introduction to multi-threading was interesting. It was good to see synchronous versus asynchronous programming head-to-head. The flickr web services demo was awesome.”—Bradley Sward, College of Dupage
