ESSENTIAL Bible For Learning CLR with C#

  • Mar 30, 2010

All I can say is WOW to this book.

You could slap a price 3-4x more on this text and it would still be a bargain. There simply is no other text on the market that hits this niche and smashes a home run out of the park.

Buyer beware, this is NOT the book for the casual programmer who is doing basic app/form/web/database development. This is a VERY specific niche of developer that is looking to get into and understand the guts of the magic of CLR. The writing is slick, tight, and intelligent. At 800+ pages, this seems like a huge amount, but there is magic throughout this book.

Let's take a look at the Table Of Contents:

01. CLR Execution Model
02. Building, Packaging, Deploying, and Administering Applications and Types
03. Shared Assemblies and Strongly Named Assemblies
04. Type Fundamentals
05. Primitive, Reference, and Value Types
06. Type and Member Basics
07. Costants and Fields
08. Methods
09. Parameters
10. Properties
11. Events
12. Generics
13. Interfaces
14. Chars, Strings, and Working with Text
15. Enumerated Types and Bit Flags
16. Arrays
17. Delegates
18. Custom Attributes
19. Nullable Value Types
20. Exceptions and State Management
21. Automatic Memory Management (Garbage Collection)
22. CLR Hosting and AppDomains
23. Assembly Loading and Reflection
24. Runtime Serialization
25. Thread Basics
26. Compute-Bound Asynchronous Operations
27. I/O-Bound Asynchronous Operations
28. Primitive Thread Synchronization Constructs
29. Hybrid Thread Synchronization Constructs

There's a lot there isn't there?

I don't need to say much more, if you need to get into the guts of the CLR or you are just looking to learn more about the inner workings, pick up this book immediately. It's one of the best computer-niche books I have ever had the pleasure to come across.
