C# 7.0 in a Nutshell (O'Reilly)
Monday, 29 January 2018

This book covers C# 7.0, the .NET CLR and its core Framework assemblies. Authors Joe Albahari and Ben Albahari have organized the book around concepts and use cases, and this updated edition provides intermediate and advanced programmers with a concise map of C# and .NET knowledge. This focus was chosen to allow space for difficult topics such as concurrency, security, and application domains without compromising depth or readability.

<ASIN:1491987650>

Features new to C# 6 and C# 7 and the associated Framework are flagged so that you can also use this book as a C# 5 and C# 6 reference.
