Making the Most of the Evolving C# Language
C# is a living, dynamic language, that gets great new features and supports ever-more technologies with every new version. It can be a bit overwhelming, to stay on top of it all and internalize the new stuff, and make effective use of it at the right time. This code-intensive session will explore a potpourri of features that maybe you haven't taken the time to explore yet, haven't encountered yet, or maybe haven't learned yet. A recurring theme of a typical new C# language feature is that it makes common coding patterns far simpler, while performing the magical feat of keeping your code readable and maintainable. So mastering these features will mean you'll be a faster, better programmer. Don will pick his favorite newer C# features to explore and then we will wrap up with a look at what Microsoft is thinking about for C# 7 in the not-so-distant future.
