This book offers solution to some common programming problems that you come across with the recently open-sourced C# and will also help you get started with .NET Core 1.1. Dirk Strauss takes a recipe-based approach, starting with a run through of new features in C# 7, such as tuples and  pattern matching. He then moves on to look at generics and the OOP features in C# before tackling more advanced topics, such as reactive extensions, Regex, code analyzers, and asynchronous programming.

<ASIN:1787286274>

The book also covers cross-platform .NET Core 1.1 features and looks at using .NET Core on macOS. Microservices, serverless computing, and the use of Visual Studio 2017 for mobile application development across multiple platforms are all covered.
