Book Description
C# is a multiparadigm programming language. The Modern C# Challenge covers with aspects of the .NET Framework such as the Task Parallel Library (TPL) and CryptoAPI. It also encourages you to explore important programming tradeoffs such as time versus space or simplicity. There may be many ways to solve a problem and there is often no single right way, but some solutions are definitely better than others. This book has combined these solutions to help you solve realworld problems with C#.
In addition to describing programming tradeoffs, The Modern C# Challenge will help you build a useful toolkit of techniques such as value caching, statistical analysis, and geometric algorithms.
By the end of this book, you will have walked through challenges in C# and explored the .NET Framework in order to develop program logic for realworld applications.
