eBook Description:

The C# Type System: Build Robust, Performant, and Efficient Programs: Harness the power of the C# type system to write programs that are clearer, simpler, and more efficient.

The type system is the foundation upon which all C# programs are built. The C# Type System will show you how to define and implement value types effectively, and write more performant and robust code. Real-world code examples and test cases throughout will elevate your programming with C# and show you how best to implement the principles you’re learning.

Among the core aspects of working with the type system, you’ll learn:

  • How user-defined value types, and even simple types, can enhance your code’s readability
  • How reference and value types differ within C#
  • How method parameters and arguments relate to reference and value types
  • How differences in copy semantics between value and reference types affect a program’s behavior
  • How the different methods of value comparisons for equality work behind the scenes
  • The unique characteristics and roles of various types in an application, especially how value types go beyond mere data storage
  • Why inheritance isn’t optimal for value types
  • How to measure and evaluate the performance of an app’s use of different data types

Whether you’re a novice or seasoned programmer, you’ll find The C# Type System indispensable in your efforts to turn good code into great.
