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.
