TOPIC: What’s new in C#
The C# language team has been making some awesome improvements. In March 2017, we were given C# 7. This major release brought some powerful features such as: pattern-matching, tuple literals/deconstruction, and local functions to name a few. Since then the team introduced the notion of point releases. Expect to learn about all the features of C# 7, as well as the C# 7.1 and 7.2 point releases. Additionally, we’ll take a look at the plan for C# 8.
