Bruce Kyle of Microsoft and Stuart Celarier of CheckFree explore the new languages features in C#. It's a whirlwind tour of the important language features since C# 1. Stuart describes the feature and why it is useful. But doesn't get into best practices nor suggested usages. Just the facts about the feature.

Whirlwinds are bite-sized webcasts, each is shorter than 15 minutes. You can start anywhere in the series to learn about the parts you're most interested in.

Ever wondered about lambda for use in expressions or in statements? Stuart describes them in part 7. He describes what a declarative syntax applies to lambda expressions. He describes to use the 'goes to' operator =>. And then describes the steps for using lambda in C# in both expressions and statements.

These features are part of C# 3 in .NET 3.5.
