In the later chapters of the book, you learn to build 3 different applications, the first is a Flickr viewer for Windows RT
- Learn about all the latest features of C#, including the asynchronous programming capabilities that promise to make apps ultra-responsive
- Examine how C# evolved over the years to be more expressive, easier to write, and how those early design decisions enabled future innovations
- Explore the language’s bright future building applications for other platforms using the Mono Framework
The second is an HTML5 Mobile app using ASP.NET MVC that uses the geolocation APIs and SignalR to build a "SoLoMo" experience.
And finally, using MonoMac to build a Mac App using C# 5 (though, irony of ironies, Xamarin announces Xamarin.Mac yesterday).
It was a pleasure working with everyone from Packt on this title. Special thanks to Asher DeVuyst for reviewing the book and giving me great feedback :P
