C# and the .NET Framework will continue to evolve over the coming months as Microsoft readies both for release. In addition, the submission of C# and the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) to ECMA for standardization will inevitably lead to additional changes.
To stay up-to-date on the latest developments, you should periodically visit the O’Reilly web page (see Section “How to Contact Us”).
We also recommend the following sites:
The Microsoft .NET Developer Center is the official site for all things .NET, including the latest version of the .NET Framework SDK, which includes the C# compiler, as well as documentation, technical articles, sample code, pointers to discussion groups, and third-party resources.
A complete list of third party resources of interest to C# and .NET Framework developers.
The DevelopMentor DOTNET discussion list. Possibly the best site for free-wheeling independent discussion of the .NET languages and framework; participants often include key Microsoft engineers.
The DevX listing of online .NET resources. Very comprehensive and thorough.
Two articles of interest include:
An interview with chief C# architect Anders Hejlsberg, by O’Reilly editor John Osborn.
A comparison of C# to C++ and Java, by coauthor Ben Albahari.
