Exploring the Power of C# 8.0: The New Switch Expression

  Introduction: In the world of programming, handling multiple conditions efficiently is a common challenge. Traditionally, languages like C# have relied on switch statements for this purpose. However, with the introduction of C# 8.0, a new feature called the "switch expression" brings a more concise, flexible, and expressive way to handle such scenarios. In this article, we'll delve into the capabilities of the new switch expression and explore how it enhances the programming experience in C#. Understanding Traditional Switch Statements: Before diving into switch expressions, let's quickly recap how traditional switch statements work in C#. A switch statement evaluates an expression against a list of possible values and executes the code block associated with the first matching value. While effective, switch statements can become verbose, especially when dealing with complex conditions or multiple cases. Introducing Switch Expressions: C# 8.0 introduces switch expr

C Sharp (C#) data structures

In C#, data structures are used to store and manipulate data efficiently. C# provides several built-in data structures and allows us to create custom data structures using classes and structs. Some of the commonly used data structures in C# include: 1. Arrays: Arrays are fixed-size collections of elements of the same data type. They provide efficient random access to elements. Example: int[] numbers = new int[5]; numbers[0] = 10; 2. Lists: Lists are dynamic arrays that can grow or shrink in size. They are part of the System.Collections.Generic namespace. Example: List<int> numbersList = new List<int>(); numbersList.Add(10); 3. Queues and Stacks: These are collections used to manage data in a first-in-first-out (FIFO) or last-in-first-out (LIFO) manner, respectively. They are also part of the System.Collections.Generic namespace. Example: Queue<int> queue = new Queue<int>(); Stack
