Overview of this book

Extensively revised to accommodate all the latest features that come with C# 10 and .NET 6, this latest edition of our comprehensive guide will get you coding in C# with confidence. You’ll learn object-oriented programming, writing, testing, and debugging functions, implementing interfaces, and inheriting classes. The book covers the .NET APIs for performing tasks like managing and querying data, monitoring and improving performance, and working with the filesystem, async streams, and serialization. You’ll build and deploy cross-platform apps, such as websites and services using ASP.NET Core. Instead of distracting you with unnecessary application code, the first twelve chapters will teach you about C# language constructs and many of the .NET libraries through simple console applications. In later chapters, having mastered the basics, you’ll then build practical applications and services using ASP.NET Core, the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern, and Blazor.
