C# Code Snippets Bitwise Operators

C# Bitwise Operators

In this code snippet, we will take a look at bitwise operators in C#. Bitwise operators can be used to manipulate individual bits of a variable. These operations can be quite cryptic and hard to understand compared to regular code. So only use it when it makes sense(for example bit masking) and don’t prematurely optimize your code. In C# we can use enums in conjunction with the Flags attribute to do bitmasking. This gives us cleaner and more readable code.

C# Code Snippets Pattern matching

C# Pattern Matching

In this code snippet, we will take a look at pattern matching in C#. Pattern matching is simply testing if an expression matches certain criteria. For example, Regex often times gets used for more complex pattern matching of strings. 

C# Code Snippets Records

C# Records

In this code snippet, we will take a look at records in C#. Records can be used instead of classes and structs. They reduce the amount of boilerplate code required to create objects whose purpose is to simply hold data. By default, records are reference types just like classes but they will act like value types when compared for equality(using == operator) meaning that two different records will be evaluated as the same if all their values are the same.

C# Code Snippets Readonly

C# Readonly

In this code snippet, we will take a look at the readonly keyword in C#. Obviously, a variable/field marked as readonly can not be modified after it was set. However, readonly can be set at run time in the constructor or when it’s declared(at compile time) unlike const which can only be set at compile

C# Code Snippets Ranges

C# Ranges

In this code snippet, we will take a look at ranges in C#. Ranges give you a quick and easy syntax to get a range/interval of elements from a collection. For example, if an array has 10 elements you can specify a range from the 2nd to the 5th element and that slice of the array will be returned to you.
