Description

The next major version of C# is officially released which is C# 8.0. We were expecting it for quite some time, we had the chance to learn all the minor features and enhancements included in C# 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3, and I can say I am quite excited about the new capabilities Microsoft keep adding to C#.

In this course we will be discussing the new features and enhancements of C# 8 with easy to follow examples to make you understand what each feature is about.

Please notice that this is not not a complete guide for C# language itself, this course covers only the features and enhancements in C# 8.

In this course we tried to break each feature down one by one for you each in a separate video with enough examples to illustrate the functionality of each feature.

But I have to mention that this course is not for someone who is looking to learn C# from the beginning or and not for a beginner as we will be covering some advanced features that requires some prior knowledge of C# in order to proceed without a problem, and from my side I will try to relate to any topic that you should be aware of to totally understand each feature functionality because some features are already based on an existing features in C#.

After finishing all the features and enhancements the course will present and explain important concepts such as .NET Core, .NET Framework .NET Standard, the differences between them what is a BCL what is MONO, topics that anyone looking to master C# should be aware of.

So what are you waiting for....let's start!

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone with experience in C#.
  • Developers who want to learn the new features of C# 8.

      Hello there! My name is Ahmad Mohey I'm a senior full stack developer. I have been developing applications for the last 10 years and I hope more years of creative developing to come. I have been developing applications for oil and gas industry and the financial and human resources departments for many companies.

I love to learn about new technologies and what’s new in the world of development as it’s growing rapidly, I love to help people learn and solve their problems. I believe, we all shall share our knowledge and pass it to each others.

The path to become a developer or a programmer is never easy but it is not that hard, You just need to keep going and do not quit and always think of any skill you have now, remember that you did not master it from the first time, you had to keep trying to master it.

Far from the software world I love photography and you can check my photographs on my page on facebook or 500px website, I am passionate about learning management and emotional intelligence and I attended many courses about management, negotiations and leadership.

I love traveling a lot,I love to see new places, cities, countries, cultures and people if I were to choose one thing to continue doing the rest of my life I would choose traveling. 

One last thing and I think it might be relevant for me being a developer, is that I love computer games maybe that’s why I love programming :) . I hope one day I will make my own games.

Finally thanks for your time reading about me.
