After a dozen years of incremental changes, C# has become one of the most versatile programming languages available. With this comprehensive guide, youâll learn just how powerful the combination of C# 5.0 and .NET 4.5 can be. Author Ian Griffiths guides you through C# 5.0 fundamentals and teaches you techniques for building web and desktop applications, including Windows 8-style apps.
Completely rewritten for experienced programmers, this book provides many code examples to help you work with the nuts and bolts of C# code, such as generics, dynamic typing, and the new asynchronous programming features. Youâll also get up to speed on XAML, ASP.NET, LINQ, and other .NET tools.
Author Ethan Brown (Web Development with Node and Express) not only guides you through simple and straightforward topics (variables, control flow, arrays), but also covers complex concepts such as functional and asynchronous programming. Youâll learn how to create powerful and responsive web applications on the client, or with Node.js on the server.
Reactive Application Development is a hands-on guide that teaches you how to build reliable enterprise applications using reactive design patterns.
Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
Foreword by Jonas BonÃ©r, Creator of Akka
About the Technology
Mission-critical applications have to respond instantly to changes in load, recover gracefully from failure, and satisfy exacting requirements for performance, cost, and reliability. That's no small task! Reactive designs make it easier to meet these demands through modular, message-driven architecture, innovative tooling, and cloud-based infrastructure.
About the Book
Reactive Application Development teaches you how to build reliable enterprise applications using reactive design patterns. This hands-on guide begins by exposing you to the reactive mental model, along with a survey of core technologies like the Akka actors framework. Then, you'll build a proof-of-concept system in Scala, and learn to use patterns like CQRS and Event Sourcing. You'll master the principles of reactive design as you implement elasticity and resilience, integrate with traditional architectures, and learn powerful testing techniques.
About the Reader
Written for Java or Scala programmers familiar with distributed application designs.
About the Author
Duncan DeVore, Sean Walsh, and Brian Hanafee are seasoned architects with experience building and deploying reactive systems in production.

Discover solutions to all your Tkinter and Python GUI development problems
As one of the more versatile programming languages, Python is well-known for its batteries-included philosophy, which includes a rich set of modules in its standard library; Tkinter is the library included for building desktop applications. Due to this, Tkinter is a common choice for rapid GUI development, and more complex applications can benefit from the full capabilities of this library. This book covers all of your Tkinter and Python GUI development problems and solutions.
Tkinter GUI Application Development Cookbook starts with an overview of Tkinter classes and at the same time provides recipes for basic topics, such as layout patterns and event handling. Next, we cover how to develop common GUI patterns, such as entering and saving data, navigating through menus and dialogs, and performing long-running actions in the background. You will then make your apps leverage network resources effectively, perform 2D and 3D animation-related tasks, create 3D objects, and perform advanced graphical operations. Finally, this book covers using the canvas and themed widgets.
By the end of the book, you will have an in-depth knowledge of Tkinter classes, and will know how to use them to build efficient and rich GUI applications.
This book is for Python developers who are familiar with the basics of the language syntax, data structures, and OOP. You do not need previous experience with Tkinter or other GUI development libraries.
