The C# Workshop (Packt)
Monday, 10 October 2022

Subtitled "Kickstart your career as a software developer with C#", this book provides a fast-paced, supportive learning experience that will quickly get you writing C# code and building applications. Rather than focus on dry, technical explanations of the underlying theory, Jason Hales, Almantas Karpavicius and Mateus Viegas cut through the noise and use engaging examples to help you understand how each concept is applied in the real world.

<ASIN:1800566492>

The book uses realistic exercises that simulate the type of problems that software developers work on every day. These mini-projects include building a random-number guessing game, using the publisher-subscriber model to design a web file downloader, creating a to-do list using Razor Pages, generating images from the Fibonacci sequence using async/await tasks, and developing a temperature unit conversion app which you will then deploy to a production server.
