Course Overview
Hello. My name is Roland Guijt, and welcome to my course, Working with C# Records. I'm a Microsoft MVP, independent consultant, and trainer based in the Netherlands. Records enable a way in C# to work with immutable types. In this practical course, we'll see why it is important and of course how to do it using records. Some of the major topics that we will cover include the case of immutability, how to apply records to projects, and the internals of records. By the end of this course, you will be able to make your code less bug prone using records. Before beginning the course, you should have a solid starting knowledge of C#, not only in terms of syntax, but also around object orientation.
