The Evolution of C#

In this book, we explore the .NET Framework from the C# developer’s perspective, focusing on the various language features and putting them in practice with a wide range of libraries that ship in the Base Class Library (BCL) or as part of separate software development kits (SDKs). But before we do so, let’s take a quick look at the various C# releases and what has shaped the language into what it is today, the .NET Framework 4.5. Figure 2.1 highlights the important themes that defined the evolution of C# so far.
