Advanced Level 2

C# 6 offers features to help you write clean concise code. Explore auto-property initializers and getter only auto-properties. See the sometimes subtle effects of features like using static members and exception filters. Simplify your code with index initializers and expression bodied members. Make your code more robust with await in catch/finally, null-conditional operators, the nameOf operator and string interpolation. See how these features make your code more readable, concise and robust.
