The C# language has entered an exciting phase in its evolution: no longer tied to triennial Visual Studio releases, updated versions of the language are shipping on a faster cadence, bringing new features to developers multiple times a year. C# 7.1 and 7.2 were released in the last 12 months, and C# 7.3 will be coming soon with Visual Studio 2017 version 15.7. We’ll examine the new C# features and how they can be used to improve your code.
