From Barnes & NobleC#, begun in Microsoft's labs, is now a formal international standard. And, as C/C++ programmers have long known, exploring a language's standard can offer surprisingly deep insights. That's especially true for C#, where Annotated C# Standard supplements the standard with hundreds of expert explanations.
This book brings together the entire current standard: types, conversions, variables, memory management, expressions, statements, classes, constants, fields, methods, properties, events, operators, indexes, constructors, inheritance, structs, interfaces, delegates, enums, namespaces, assemblies, versioning, generics, iterators...you get the point.
But the real added value comes in the annotations. Why are partial interfaces supported, and how might you use them? How are C# enum types different from those in other languages? Why does using exceptions for flow control impact performance so heavily? Where else would you find answers to questions like these? Realistically, probably nowhere.
