What’s New in C# 6.0
Date: 29th January 2015
Event: Tech Spark session
Location: Microsoft Innovation Centre, Skyparks, Luqa, Malta
Abstract: Visual Studio 2015 will bring a number of radical changes, including C# and VB .NET compilers that have been completely rewritten based on the “Roslyn” .NET Compiler Platform. Although much of the work on C# has been done under the hood, in this session we will see a preview of the new features coming to the language in C# 6.0.
