The CIL of C# 6.0’s String Interpolation

January 2, 2015 / 2 Comments

One of the C# 6.0 features that will most simply and perhaps most predominantly affect the way you write C# code in the future is string interpolation.  Besides explaining composite string formatting (the old way – string.Format("{0} {1}", firstName, lastName) ) or obviously being relegated to a pre-C# 6.0 world, there is little reason to revert back from the […]

MSCORELIB Classes that work with using static in C# 6.0

November 15, 2014 / No Comment

Static Using Statement in C# 6.0

August 29, 2014 / 5 Comments

Another C# 6.0 “syntactic sugar” feature is the introduction of using static.  With this feature, it’s possible to eliminate an explicit reference to the type when invoking a static method.  Furthermore, using static lets you introduce only the extension methods on a specific class, rather than all extension methods within a namespace.  The code of […]
