The book is divided into two parts. Part I covers the fundamentals and essentials of advanced programming in C#. You will be introduced to delegates and events and then move on to lambda expressions. Part II teaches you how to implement these features in different programming techniques, starting with generic programming. After that, you will learn about thread programming and asynchronous programming, to benefit from a multi-threaded environment. Finally, you will learn database programming using ADO.NET to connect to a MySQL database and you will know how to exercise SQL statements and stored procedures through your C# applications.
