Course Description

Every new version of C# brings new functionality to the language, but version 6 has even more changes than previous versions. Instead of bringing one or two new features, there are many—and each of them will change the way we write code on a daily basis. This course will take you through the most important new features, and show you how to use them.

What You’ll Learn

  • Using the ‘static’ statement to import the static members of a class.
  • Using the ‘nameof’ operator.
  • Understanding C#’s string interpolation capability.
  • Using the null-conditional operator to simplify your traditional null-checking code.
  • The two key things to remember when writing your own default constructors for structs.
  • The new dictionary initializer and exception filtering features.
