Summary

In this chapter, you learned about the .NET platform in general: its history, design goals, the cross-language interoperability story, and the core runtime services provided by the Common Language Runtime. We even sneaked a peek at the BCL.

Now that you have a solid understanding of the platform, let’s focus on the C# language, our main language tool in the rest of this book. We cover the history, design trends, and core aspects of the C# language in the next chapter.
