Topic: C# 8 Deep Dish with a Slice of C#7
Wanting to get up to speed on all the new language features of C# 8.0? This code-focused session will cover all the new features such as nullable/non-nullable reference types, async streams, static local functions, and more. But what about C# 7? In early 2017, C# 7.0 brought us new features such as tuples, local functions, and pattern matching. But did you know that since then, C# 7.1, C# 7.2, and C# 7.3 have also been released? If you feel like you “missed” these point-releases, this presentation will get you all caught up with C# 7.x – while also showing every new innovative feature of C# 8.0!
