The Why and How of C# 9.0By Igor Rončević
In this talk, we start with Why. After explaining the motivation behind individual C# 9.0 features, we demonstrate the How through live-refactoring of an existing C# 8.0 Blazor application to C# 9.0. By the time the talk and the refactoring end, you will: - understand the motivation behind the biggest C# 9.0 features like records and enhanced pattern matching. - learn which tools and techniques can help you efficiently refactor your existing code to C# 9.0. - understand how to safely use C# 9.0 on older, officially not supported, .NET frameworks and runtimes. - discover some smaller, less discussed, but very useful C# 9.0 features. Last but not least, we will have fun together, going through some C# memes and weird challenges that C# 9.0 made possible, like writing non-trivial programs without using any curly braces :-) ;-)
