C# 8.0 in a Nutshell: The Definitive Reference


When you have questions about C# 8.0 or .NET Core, this best-selling guide has the answers you need. C# is a language of unusual flexibility and breadth, but with its continual growth there’s so much more to learn. In the tradition of the O’Reilly Nutshell guides, this thoroughly updated edition is simply the best one-volume reference to the C# language available today.

Organized around concepts and use cases, C# 8.0 in a Nutshell provides intermediate and advanced programmers with a concise map of C# and .NET knowledge that also plumbs significant depths.

Get up to speed on C#, from syntax and variables to advanced topics such as pointers, closures, and patterns
Dig deep into LINQ with three chapters dedicated to the topic
Explore concurrency and asynchrony, advanced threading, and parallel programming
Work with .NET features, including regular expressions, networking, serialization, spans, reflection, and cryptography
Delve into Roslyn, the modular C# compiler as a service


C# 8.0 represents the seventh major update to Microsoft’s flagship
programming language, positioning C# as a language with unusual
flexibility and breadth. At one end, it offers high-level abstractions
such as query expressions and asynchronous continuations, whereas
at the other end, it allows low-level efficiency through constructs
such as custom value types and optional pointers.

The price of this growth is that there’s more than ever to learn.
Although tools such as Microsoft’s IntelliSense—and online
references—are excellent in helping you on the job, they presume an
existing map of conceptual knowledge. This book provides exactly
that map of knowledge in a concise and unified style—free of clutter
and long introductions.
