What’s New in C# 6.0 and VB 14

This section is for developers looking for highlights on what’s new about the C# and Visual Basic languages. For those who need the basics (or a refresher), we suggest you start by reading the “Language Primer” section a little later in this chapter. You can then return here to see what additions exist to the primer.

In general, the language changes are small additions that help you write cleaner code. They simplify coding by eliminating unnecessary, repetitive code. The changes also make the code easier to read and understand.


You can examine much of the code in this section by downloading the code files associated with this book.
