What’s New In C# 10?Ahmed Kamal
C# (pronounced “C sharp”) is a popular programming language developed by Microsoft. It is a general-purpose language that is designed to be simple, powerful, and easy to use.
C# is commonly used to build Windows applications, Web and Mobile applications. It is a strongly-typed language with support for object-oriented programming, and it has a rich set of features that make it well-suited for a wide range of applications.
C# is part of the .NET framework, which provides a set of tools and libraries for building applications that run on the Windows platform. C# is a popular choice for building Windows applications because it is easy to learn, has a modern syntax, and has strong support for object-oriented programming concepts.
If you’re new to C#, there are many resources available to help you get started, including online tutorials, books, and online courses. Whether you’re an experienced programmer looking to learn a new language or a beginner just starting out in programming, C# is a great language to learn.
Some C# 10 Features:
- Constructor and method type inference: Allows you to use type inference in constructors and methods, which can make your code more concise and easier to read.
- Improved pattern matching: Adds new patterns and capabilities to C#’s pattern matching feature, including the ability to use patterns in catch blocks and the ability to match ranges of values.
- Improved nullable reference types: Makes it easier to work with nullable reference types by allowing you to use the null-coalescing operator (??) and the null-conditional operator (?.) with them.
- Improved target-typed new expressions: Allows you to use the “new” keyword with an object initializer or collection initializer, and have the type of the object or collection inferred from the context.
- Improved support for functional programming: Adds new features to support functional programming, including partial application and currying.
- Improved support for asynchronous programming: Improves the syntax for asynchronous programming by allowing you to use the “await” keyword in catch and finally blocks.
- Enhanced type patterns: Adds new patterns to the “is” operator and the “switch” statement, including the ability to match tuples and the ability to match types with a specific attribute.
- Improved support for records: Adds new features to improve the usability of records, including the ability to use them as generic type arguments and the ability to use them with pattern matching.
- Enhanced support for target-typed conditional expressions: Allows you to use the “?” and “:” operators with a target type, and have the type of the expression inferred from the context.
- Improved support for unmanaged types: Adds new features to improve the usability of unmanaged types, including the ability to use them as generic type arguments and the ability to use them with pattern matching.
