What’s New In C# 7

It’s never been a more exciting time to be a C# developer, as the language has shifted from being a proprietary Microsoft technology to an open source project with a modern compiler service which makes it easier to add new features. C# 7 builds on this framework to bring us new syntax for working with data structures in a more functional-like and friction-less way, allowing us to reduce our boiler plate code and more clearly express our intent.

In this session, you’ll learn the new C# 7 syntax through code demos and see how the new features such as tuples and pattern matching can help simplify common coding scenarios.
