What C# 8 Features Are You Most Excited For?

I'm just now starting to catch up on Microsoft Build 2019, and even in the early stages I'm excited to put these new features to use.

For me, I'm looking forward to pattern matching and nesting switch expressions.

What C# 8.0 features are you most excited to see?

For me it has to be default implementations on interfaces.

I'm super excited to play with it, but I'm also really conflicted about whether I'd want to use it in my work.

Sure, we still have plenty of time too. I can't wait for the day that I'm pleasantly surprised by new intelli-sense, or an analyzer offering to refactor these for me. Sometimes we intentionally use these updates, sometimes they find us.

C# is my favorite language, it excites me for every change and I update it regularly (RC and release).

What is my favorite feature?. YES.

However, I don't like this screen

Is that a sly reference to null propagation?.
