Book: CLR via C#
Publisher: Microsoft Press
The Microsoft .NET Framework introduces many concepts, technologies, and terms. My goal in this
chapter is to give you an overview of how the .NET Framework is designed, introduce you to some of
the technologies the framework includes, and define many of the terms you’ll be seeing when you start
using it. I’ll also take you through the process of building your source code into an application or a set
of redistributable components (files) that contain types (classes, structures, etc.) and then explain how
your application will execute.
Dig deep and master the intricacies of the common language runtime, C#, and .NET development. Led by programming expert Jeffrey Richter, a longtime consultant to the Microsoft .NET team—you’ll gain pragmatic insights for building robust, reliable, and responsive apps and components.
