    Bart J.F. De Smet is a software development engineer on Microsoft’s Cloud Programmability Team, an avid blogger, and a popular speaker at various international conferences. In his current role, he’s actively involved in the design and implementation of Reactive Extensions for .NET (Rx) and on an extended “LINQ to Anything” mission. You can read about Bart’s technical adventures on his blog at http://blogs.bartdesmet.net/bart.

    His main interests include programming languages, virtual machines and runtimes, functional programming, and all sorts of theoretical foundations. In his spare time, Bart likes to go out for a hike in the wonderful nature around Seattle, read technical books, and catch up on his game of snooker.

    Before joining the company in October 2007, Bart was active in the .NET community as a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for C#, while completing his Bachelor of Informatics, Master of Informatics, and Master of Computer Science Engineering studies at Ghent University, Belgium.

    C# 5.0 Unleashed is for anyone who wants to learn the C# programming language in depth, understanding how language features truly work. While giving you those insights, you learn where and how to use the features to design various kinds of software. This book not only teaches the language’s capabilities, it also looks behind the scenes to build a solid foundation to aid you in understanding the .NET platform as a whole.

    ¿

    Bart De Smet offers exceptional insight into the features of both the language and Microsoft’s broader framework. He doesn’t just cover the “what” and “how” of effective C# programming: He explains the “why,” so you can consistently choose the right language and platform features, maximizing your efficiency and effectiveness.

    ¿

    The early chapters introduce the .NET platform, the tooling ecosystem, and the C# programming language, followed by in-depth coverage of the C# programming language itself, with immediate application of language features. The last chapters give an overview of the .NET Framework libraries about which every good developer on the platform should know.
