Free sample

If you’re writing one of several applications that call for asynchronous programming, this concise hands-on guide shows you how the async feature in C# 5.0 can make the process much simpler. Along with a clear introduction to asynchronous programming, you get an in-depth look at how the async feature works and why you might want to use it in your application.

Written for experienced C# programmers—yet approachable for beginners—this book is packed with code examples that you can extend for your own projects.

  • Write your own asynchronous code, and learn how async saves you from this messy chore
  • Discover new performance possibilities in ASP.NET web server code
  • Explore how async and WinRT work together in Windows 8 applications
  • Learn the importance of the await keyword in async methods
  • Understand which .NET thread is running your code—and at what points in the program
  • Use the Task-based Asynchronous Pattern (TAP) to write asynchronous APIs in .NET
  • Take advantage of parallel computing in modern machines
  • Measure async code performance by comparing it with alternatives

About the author

Alex is a coder, blogger and concurrency enthusiast from England. He currently works as a developer and product owner at Red Gate, working on tools for .NET developers. Before that, he did a degree in computer science at Cambridge University, and still has theoretical CS in his blood. In his spare time he writes an open source Actors framework for .NET, to let people write parallel programs more easily.

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, C# 6 for Programmers 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.

Paul Deitel and Harvey Deitel are the founders of Deitel & Associates, Inc., the internationally recognized programming languages authoring and corporate training organization. Millions of people worldwide have used Deitel textbooks, professional books, LiveLessons™ video products, e-books, resource centers and REVEL™ interactive multimedia courses with integrated labs and assessment to master major programming languages and platforms, including C#, C++, C, Java™, Android™ app development, iOS app development, Swift™, Visual Basic®, Python™ and Internet and web programming.

Features:

•Use with Windows® 7, 8 or 10.

•Integrated coverage of new C# 6 functionality: string interpolation, expression-bodied methods and properties, auto-implemented property initializers, getter-only properties, nameof, null-conditional operator, exception filters and more.

•Entertaining and challenging code examples.

•Deep treatment of classes, objects, inheritance, polymorphism and interfaces.

•Generics, LINQ and generic collections; PLINQ (Parallel LINQ) for multicore performance.

•Asynchronous programming with async and await; functional programming with lambdas, delegates and immutability.

•Files; relational database with LINQ to Entities.

•Object-oriented design ATM case study with full code implementation.

•Emphasis on performance and software engineering principles

If you want to speed up the development of your .NET applications, you're ready for C# design patterns -- elegant, accepted and proven ways to tackle common programming problems. This practical guide offers you a clear introduction to the classic object-oriented design patterns, and explains how to use the latest features of C# 3.0 to code them.

C# Design Patterns draws on new C# 3.0 language and .NET 3.5 framework features to implement the 23 foundational patterns known to working developers. You get plenty of case studies that reveal how each pattern is used in practice, and an insightful comparison of patterns and where they would be best used or combined. This well-organized and illustrated book includes:An explanation of design patterns and why they're used, with tables and guidelines to help you choose one pattern over anotherIllustrated coverage of each classic Creational, Structural, and Behavioral design pattern, including its representation in UML and the roles of its various playersC# 3.0 features introduced by example and summarized in sidebars for easy referenceExamples of each pattern at work in a real .NET 3.5 program available for download from O'Reilly and the author's companion web siteQuizzes and exercises to test your understanding of the material.With C# 3.0 Design Patterns, you learn to make code correct, extensible and efficient to save time up front and eliminate problems later. If your business relies on efficient application development and quality code, you need C# Design Patterns.
