Most script languages use late binding and most compiled languages use early binding; C#, although a compiled language and thus an early binding one, has reflection for late binding. In this post we will explore early & late binding in C# with theory and samples.
It may be that .NET 5, the one and only .NET that will clear the confusion and lead the way for the next years was probably the biggest(?) announcement of Microsoft Build 2020, but there were numerous other equally important; from the general availability of the Blazor WebAssembly, the Azure Static Web Apps and all the projects related to IoT and Artificial Intelligence, all the way to .NET MAUI (short for Multi-platform App UI), Visual Studio Codespaces, Entity Framework Core 5, Project Tye, Azure Quantum and the multiple new features and capabilities of Azure Cosmos DB.
Although there were many more interesting things, C# 9 was left out intentionally because in this post we will deal with some of its exciting new features!
