Join Reynald Adolphe for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching, part of C# 7 First Look.
- [Instructor] For this course, I'm assuming that you're already comfortable with programming. Specifically you should be familiar with C#, the .NET framework, and Visual Studio. If you aren't completely comfortable with these, or if you have any questions while watching this course, I'd recommended that you take a look at my other courses, .NET Programming Introduction and C# 6.0 First Look. I'll be using Visual Studio Community 2017, the RC edition, of which you can find here.
And to download it, what I'd like you to do is scroll down, and not click Visual Studio 2017 here, but rather move down to where it says Visual Studio 2017, and hit the plus sign, and choose, for me it is the first option, the Community edition, and download this. When you start the installation process, make sure that you choose the following three components.
.NET desktop development, Web development, and .NET Core.
- Literals, separators, and local functions
- Is expressions with patterns
- Switch statements with patterns
- Ref returns
- Out variables
- Async return types and expressions
- Throw expressions
