C# isn’t C++ or Java. Your old habits could be holding you back. In Effective C#, Bill Wagner brings together 50 new C# idioms and techniques that accelerate development, improve code quality, and enhance performance and scalability.
Wagner’s solutions cover core language elements, .NET resource management, binary component development, more effective expression of program design, and many other topics.
