29.4.2024 #nullable enable – unlock the power of C# nullability with Maarten Balliauw


Hi everyone,

After exploring an almost null free type safe world of FSharp with Isaac we are going to unlock the power of C# nullability to make our C# code more robust. We are looking forward to hosting once more Maarten Balliauw.

nullable enable – unlock the power of C# nullability

Get ready to bid farewell to the dreaded System.NullReferenceException and step into the wonderful world of C# nullability!

In this session, we’ll unravel the hidden magic behind nullability syntax and annotations, unleashing the power of static analysis. But hold on, it’s not as simple as a sprinkle of ? and ! here and there. We’ll delve into the depths and discover that it’s no silver bullet either. Yep, you’ll still need to keep an eye on those non-nullable variables!

Come along on a journey through the essentials of C# nullability, and let’s explore techniques and approaches for integrating it into your existing code bases.
