The C# Player's Guide 4th Ed (Starbound Software)
Wednesday, 31 March 2021

This book aims to "shake off the dusty, dull, dryness of the typical programming book, replacing it with something more exciting and flavorful: a bit of humor, a casual tone, and examples involving dragons and asteroids instead of bank accounts and employees". R B Whitaker shows how to program by doing instead of just reading, with over 100 hands-on programming challenges. The book covers the C# language from the ground up, but it also doesn’t hold back on exciting, powerful language features.
