All code from the book is organized in ready-to-run projects and grouped by chapters. Whenever possible, these are cross-platform .NET Core projects which run on every supported platform from a code editor like Visual Studio 2017 or Visual Studio Code, and even from command line. For exceptions, requirements are explained in the
README.md file of each chapter folder.
You are encouraged to run the code, modify it and further experiment with it.
Most code will work with .NET Core 2.2 on any supported platform. You can find installation instructions on the download page. Exact prerequisites for each platform are listed in the documentation (Windows, Linux or macOS). The only exceptions are:
Windows-specific features (Windows Forms, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and ASP.NET) require the latest version of .NET framework running on Windows.
C# 8 topics require .NET Core 3.0 Preview 1 or later and Visual Studio 2019 Preview 1 or later.
