Play by Play is a series of courses that allows you to see top developers and designers in real-time, real-world problem-solving sessions. In this particular C# course, Jon Skeet of Stack Overflow fame matches up with Pluralsight's Scott Allen to answer carefully-selected questions from Stack Overflow. You'll get to see how these experts think through and solve complicated problems in C#, ranging from simple LINQ queries to more difficult threading issues, and you'll also learn a few practical tips and tricks as you go. By the end of this course, you'll have the critical thinking skills needed to approach problems in C# like the experts do, and you'll be able to apply the tips and tricks you learn from them to your own work in C#.

Hi everyone, my name is Rob Conery. Welcome to this play by play with Jon Skeet and K. Scott Allen. In this play by play, I have Jon and Scott answer questions from Stack Overflow about C#. If you're familiar with play by plays here at Pluralsight, then you know the typical focus. We sit down with experts in a given field and see how they solve a particular problem or task. They're a lot of fun, but this play by play is going to be a little different. For this effort, I decided to make Jon and Scott answer preselected Stack Overflow questions independently. I chose five seemingly simple questions about C#, some old, some very new, questions about strings, link, binary compatibility. I then sent those questions to each of them with instructions to keep their answers to themselves. At NDC London in January 2016 we met up and turned the cameras on and recorded their responses, which is what you're about to see. How would Scott adjust link to accept a SQL-like string? How would Jon get a property name passed by a lambda? What happens to binary compatibility when adding a new dependency? What would you do to solve these problems? Come and find out. Match your wits against two of the brightest minds working with C# today in our play by play with Jon Skeet and K. Scott Allen.
