**The Modern C# Challenge: Become an expert C# programmer by solving interesting programming problems by Rod Stephens**

English | 2018 | ISBN: 1789535426 | 362 Pages | True PDF, EPUB | 28 MB

Learn advanced C# concepts and techniques such as building caches, cryptography, and parallel programming by solving interesting programming challenges

C# is a multi-paradigm 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 trade-offs 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 real-world problems with C#.

In addition to describing programming trade-offs, 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 real-world applications.
