This session will delve into all that makes up C# 7.0. You'll be introduced to new features such as pattern matching, out-variable updates, anonymous yet strongly typed tuple returns, deconstructor support, local functions, variable declaration improvements, and more. Don't miss out on this session to update your C# programming skillset to the latest C# language capabilities.
