Book Description

Visual Studio 2013 enables you to develop and manage consumer-focused and business-oriented apps. It provides best-in-class tools that propel developers to create new apps or evolve existing ones. In conjunction, .NET 4.5 provides expansive capabilities for developers to work on all forms of apps and services, from client to mobile and from web to cloud, enabling them to focus solely on business logic rather than architecture.

This practical guide teaches you how to work with new changes in technology under the arena of .NET. It provides in-depth analysis and expert advice on various elements of .NET, applying them in code using detailed practical examples, and helping you understand the entire technology in easy, small steps. This book provides solutions to common development problems that you as a developer often face, thereby helping you to adapt the latest technologies as well as get grips on modern app development using .NET 4.5.
