Publisher: O'Reilly Media

When you're programming C# 4.0 and need a little help, this tightly focused and practical book tells you exactly what you need to know -- without long introductions or bloated examples. It's ideal as a succinct quick reference or as a guide to get you rapidly up to speed if you already know Java, C++, or an earlier version of C#.

Written by the authors of the acclaimed C# 4.0 in a Nutshell (O’Reilly), this book covers the entire C# 4.0 language -- without skimping on the details -- including:

  • Features new to C# 4.0, such as dynamic binding, optional and named parameters, and type parameter variance
  • All of C#'s fundamentals
  • Advanced topics, including operator overloading, custom conversions, type constraints, covariance and contravariance, lambda expressions and closures, iterators, nullable types, and operator lifting
  • LINQ, starting with sequences, lazy execution, and standard query operators; finishing with a complete reference to query expressions
  • Unsafe code and pointers, custom attributes, preprocessor directives, and XML documentation

    Comments about O'Reilly Media C# 4.0 Pocket Reference, 3rd Edition:

    I'm not a full time C# programmer, so between the times that I use C# I tend to fill the old grey cells with other stuff. Currently the flavour of the month, Cloud stuff. So when I do come back to coding I usually have to have an easy reference to help me remember. Recently I've been using the new edition of the C# Pocket Reference.I've not any of the previous editions, usually I've looked on msdn. So what I found with this book was ideal. To get the book image into this post I had to go find the page on the site where the image is. It was only then that I read the "marketing" blurb. I picked a line out of that blurb because that summed up my need. "..this tightly focused and practical book tells you exactly what you need to know -- without long introductions or bloated examples. It's ideal as a succinct quick reference or as a guide to get you rapidly up to speed" The book does pretty much exactly what is says on the site. I skimmed parts as I read through, but other parts, like LINQ that I haven't used in anger, I found useful. If, like me, you are looking for a quick reference. Something that does cover the new features, but also shows you other aspects of the language you might be aware of then, this is a good reference. It also reads well on an eReader.If you need something deeper, there is also a big brother to this called "Programming C# 4.0 " available too. The caveat is that I've not read this one yet.
