Tuples unnamed types that contain multiple public fields var alphabetStart = (Alpha: "a", Beta: "b")... unpackaging is called deconstructing the tuple... names of tuple elements can be inferred from the variables used to initialize ... Discards are temporary, write-only variables used in assignments... async Main method... private protected access modifier enables access for derived classes in the same assembly... is pattern expression... switch expression is no longer restricted. Any type may be used... You may add a when clause. The order of case labels is now important
- C# 7.0 introduces throw expressions.
- If you don't remember the order of the parameters but know their names, you can send the arguments in any order.
There are two common use cases for local functions: public iterator methods and public async methods. Both types of methods generate code that reports errors later than programmers might expect... to ensure that exceptions arising from argument validation are thrown before the asynchronous

needs Visual Studio 2019
You can now add members to interfaces and provide an implementation for those members. Existing implementations inherit the default implementation... C#7.0 introduced syntax for type patterns and constant patterns by using the is expression and the switch statement. These features represented the first tentative steps toward supporting programming paradigms where data and functionality live apart... You can now add the static modifier to #Local functions to ensure that local function doesn't capture (reference) any variables from the enclosing scope.
