Tune in to C#

I’ll take you on a journey of language design nerdery, targeted equally at C# newbies and oldies. Let’s see how some of our recent features take on the null menace, immutability, and value semantics in the context of object-oriented programming, and peek at some of the next ideas we’re tinkering with.
