Table of contents
Immutability, in object-oriented and functional programming, is an object whose state cannot be modified or changed after it is created.
In this course, you will learn the importance and use of immutability, how to apply records to projects, and the internals of records.
Prerequisites for this course are a baseline knowledge of C#. Not only syntax but also object orientation.
C# records are a reference type that you can create instead of classes or structs. Records are distinct from classes because records use a value-based equality.
In C# polymorphism is the ability for objects of different types to provide a unique interface for different implementations of methods.
