Description

Understanding how to use collections properly is a vital part in writing effective C# applications. In this course, Advanced C# Collections, you'll learn how to use the full range of Microsoft collections and understand how to ensure collection elements are unique using sets, along with customizing dictionary key lookup and sorting of elements. First, you’ll develop an understanding of the principles of collection scalability, which is important to ensure performance stays acceptable when dealing with very large collections. Then, you'll discover how to make your code around collections more robust by using collection interfaces to decouple code, and read-only and immutable collections to protect your data. Finally, you'll delve into using collections in a multi-threaded scenario using the concurrent collections. By the end of this course, you'll have the knowledge needed to effectively choose the most appropriate collection for any reasonable situation, and leverage that collection following good practices.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hello and welcome to this course Advanced C Sharp collections. I'm Simon Robinson. I've been coding in See shop for over 18 years now. And I firmly believe understanding how to use collections properly is a vital part of writing good, robust C sharp applications. Because just about every app needs to store and manipulates data in collections, this course will take your knowledge of collections to the next level. I assume you already have some experience of coding with collections and C sharp, for example, we know how to enumerate and look up values in a list or a dictionary. Maybe you've already watched and understood my other course beginning see shirt collections, and from there I will show you how to use the full range of collections, links lists to get high performance changes, sets to enforce uniqueness and perform operations on collections as a whole, stacks and accused for situations where you need to process items. I'll talk about scalability and even touch on concurrent collections for multi threaded situations and read only and immutable collections for making your code more robust. And I'll show you how to decouple your code using collection interfaces. By the end of this course, you should know how to select the most appropriate collection for any reasonable scenario and be able to follow good practices in how you use each collection.
