Both Visual Basic 14 and C# 6.0, developers get the NameOf operator/keyword. It doesn't do much: It returns the name of the variable or member passed to it. This means I can write properties that integrate with the INotifyPropertyChanged event with code like this:
Public Property CompanyName() As String
Me.companyNameValue = value
This isn't going to make my applications run faster or anything useful like that. But it's going to eliminate a whole bunch of hardcoded strings in my applications that included the name of some program element. Now, instead of a string whose content the compiler couldn't validate, I can use NameOf and let the compiler check the parameter I pass.

Microsoft, apparently trying to enhance every product it has with an AI-powered Copilot, announced a new one for the latest release of SQL Server Developer Tools (SSDT) in Visual Studio.
A cross-platform media player highlights the new Uno Platform 4.9, the latest edition of the application framework that lets developers write an application once in XAML and C# and deploy it to any target platform.
"As opposed to traditional deep learning (DL) model training, On-Device Training requires efficient use of compute and memory resources."
With Visual Studio v17.6 becoming generally available recently, Microsoft provided a peek at what's coming up in the next iteration, VS 2022 v17.7
Dev team shows how Welcome revamp was first presented and then how it was shaped by community feedback.
