C# in Depth 3rd edition available for early access, plus a discount code…

Readers who follow me on Twitter or Google+ know this already, but…

The third edition of C# in Depth is now available for early access from its page on the Manning website. I’ve been given a special discount code which expires at midnight EST on February 17th, so be quick if you want to use it – it gives 50% off either version. The code is “csharpsk”.

It’s likely that we’ll have a separate (permanent) discount for readers who already own the second edition, but the details of that haven’t been decided yet.

Just to be clear, the third edition is largely the second edition plus the changes to cover C# 5 – I haven’t done as much rewriting as I did for the second edition, mostly because I was already pretty happy with the second edition :) Obviously the largest (by far) feature in C# 5 is async/await, which is covered in detail in the new chapter 15.

  1. Purchased ebook and print from my mobile phone in 4am while twittering. Now my collection of your books (1,3) and CLR via C# (1,4) is complete.

    Also your Tekpub Async videos are perfect.

    This deal became available two days ago. You can purchase the eBook for $9.99 or the pBook for $19.99 by using the code skeet3eupgrade. This offer expires at midnight (US eastern time) on Monday February 25.

  3. Hi Jon,

    I bought the second edition of C# in Depth. Are you considering selling a delta edition that contain only the new stuff. This way I can pay a reasonable price and get most up to date information.

    Best regards,

  5. Jon, loved your book it was great! You may want to consider using a differnt cover however. Not sure if you know but the ottoman empire is responsible for leveling thousands of chruches, murdering milions of Christians, enslaving children and all sorts of other attrocities during its 400 years presence in Europe. As recent as 1915 they murdered 1.5 million armenians. I know you’re a devoted Christian and hope you’ll consider this.

    1. No, the fourth edition cover will be similar to the other editions. As a Christian I’m still able to distinguish between a work of art representing an innocent individual, and atrocities performed by the empire that individual would have been part of. Similarly, I can appreciate Catholic works of art without denying the horrors of the Spanish Inquisition.

      1. Most people unfortunately, are completely unaware of the horrific nature of the ottomans and the genocide that they practiced, so by placing a musician on the cover you’re essentially humanizing them. My great great grand father was tortured and savagely murdered in front of a church, while music was playing, a standard practice by the ottomans. Please, read some Armenian or Balkan sources on the savagery of the ottomans and maybe you’ll change your mind. Best of luck on your books.

        1. “so by placing a musician on the cover you’re essentially humanizing them” – there we disagree. It’s a work of art. If we abandoned every work of art by every culture that had committed atrocities, there’d be very little left.

          The choice of the book cover makes no comment on the Ottoman empire or its actions.

  6. Those “musical artists” regularly performed during mass murders, standing right next to the killers… art? they are as far away from art as possible…
