Excellent technical manual for C# programmers,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: C# 5.0 in a Nutshell: The Definitive Reference (Paperback)
I'll admit right now that I'm only about 10% through this book but it's been a brilliant journey so far.
The prose is aimed at just the right level and the examples are perfect for experimenting with the new features of C# 5.0 and dotNet 4.5.
I've found no errors (not that I would spot one) - what I mean is that the code examples all worked as written in the book which is always a cause for concern. After all, if you were to get a compiler error what would you do? So the accuracy of the book so far is giving me great confidence in the other chapters.
I only dip in and out of the book as time permits or as topics arise which I need to study. The one I read was about multi-tasking vs multi-threading and made me re-think my approach after some of the examples showed me how multi-thread race condition could easily arise if I continued my method of working.
So, if nothing else, it's teaching me to be a better programmer!
