The biggest feature of C# 8.0 is undoubtedly nullable reference types. Rather than trying to rush through all the new features, in this talk I'll just talk about this one. What's the point? What's the syntax? What's should you expect? What might be unexpected? I'll go into all of this and more!

What will the audience learn from this talk?

  • How C# 8 allows developers to express nullability in the type system
  • The benefits of nullable reference types compared with earlier versions of C#
  • Tricky areas and "gotchas"

Does it feature code examples and/or live coding? The talk will be live coding for the whole time, with samples on GitHub

Prerequisite attendee experience level: 200
