This course takes a detailed look at the areas of C# and .NET that have particular resonance to developers today, including asynchrony, creating decoupled and adaptable systems, and test-driven development.
What you will learn:
• Asynchronous programming techniques
• Parallelization and concurrency
• Debugging multithreaded code
• Reflection and metadata
• Using CodeDom and dynamic code
• Dynamic programming
• Dependency injection
• Test-driven development
• Creating tasks; Designing task-based APIs; Continuations; Nested tasks
• Quick recap of async and await; A closer look at the Task class; Working with TaskCompletionSource; Task scheduling
• Task-based and data-based parallelism; Using the Parallel class; Using PLINQ; TPL DataFlow
Debugging Multithreaded Code:
• Types of bugs; Visual Studio debugging techniques; Going beyond Visual Studio
Reflection and Metadata:
• Metadata storage; Loading assemblies; Examining types using reflection; Creating instances using reflection; Late binding; Assembly metadata; Defining and accessing custom attributes.
Integrating with Unmanaged Code:
• The dynamic keyword; Using The Dynamic Language Runtime
CodeDom and Dynamic Code:
• Overview of CodeDom; Compiling code; Using interfaces effectively; Using reflection effectively; Using Reflection Emit; Creating dynamic methods; Working with builder classes.
