About the Author
Filip Ekberg is an enthusiastic developer that strives to learn something new every day. His greatest passion is programming and ever since Filip was a little boy he has always tried to master it.
During his professional years Filip has started his own business SmartIT eSolutions Sweden, worked as a software engineer and as an amanuensis teaching programming.
Filip has a bachelor degree in software engineering from Blekinge Institute of Technology. This is also where Filip worked as an amanuensis for a program called "Creative Mobile Development".
Since 2011, Filip works as a software engineer at Star Republic in Gothenburg, Sweden, where he has gotten a lot of inspiration to this book.
In .NET, Filip primarily works with C#, WPF, WCF, ASP.NET MVC, ASP.-NET, Silverlight and Windows Phone. For those that have stumbled upon his blog, you have seen his great interest in learning new technologies and sharing his thoughts on the subjects, this has made Filip a DZone Most-Valuable Blogger.
Outside .NET, Filip has also done professional work in both Java and PHP.

I've always enjoyed technical books where you can pick them up, read a topic and not have to worry about having read the previous chapters. This book follows that pattern and does it extremely well - giving you enough on each topic to get you going, but avoids overwhelming you with the small details that you don't need to know to get productive.
I really liked:
- chapter 1 on Parallel Extensions: clear and coincise
- chapter 3 where the great (I love this tool) Visual NDepend is described in good detail
- chapter 5 on async programming with different approaches to the subject
- chapter 6 on dynamic programming where I discovered Expando object I was unaware of
- chapter 9 with the a perfect and coincise description of Microsoft IL
- chapter 10 with its introduction to Roslyn CTP
12 chapters full of great topics that can be very helpful in your day by day adventure in C#
By the way, when I bought the print edition of the book, I was also able to download the electronic version of it at no additional cost. A nice touch.
