Level: Introductory to Intermediate
Delegates are waiting to make our code more flexible and extensible. We'll take a look at what delegates are and dispel the mystery of the built-in Func and Action delegate types. Jumping into code, we'll use them to make our classes more flexible and even use multi-casting to kick off a series of operations with a single call. Along the way, we'll see that lambda expressions can add readability to our code (yes, I actually said that). And this is a great jumping off point for heading into LINQ, parallel programming, and functional programming.
You will learn:
- Understanding what delegates are
- Using delegates for extensibility
- Getting a handle on Func, Action, and lambda expressions
