Metaprogramming in .NET

Description

The performance and functionality of a program depends a great deal on its runtime environment, which can vary a great deal from session to session. Metaprogramming is a style of software development that incorporates runtime information into its decision-making. Metaprogramming techniques like reflection and code generation can make your software more adaptive and reusable. The .NET Framework exposes many metaprogramming capabilities including code generation systems, application composition frameworks, and scripting technologies. Metaprogramming in .NET is designed to help readers understand the basic concepts, advantages and potential pitfalls of metaprogramming. It introduces core concepts in clear, easy-to-follow language and then it takes you on a deep dive into the tools and techniques you'll use to implement them in your .NET code. You'll explore plenty of real-world examples that reinforce key concepts. When you finish, you'll be able to build high-performance, metaprogramming-enabled software with confidence.
