Build 2020 - Day 2 Overview

Day 2 of BUILD brought a lot of very cool sessions and more updates. Below are some notes from some of the sessions that I was able to attend do that I wanted to make sure get the attention they deserve

  • Serverless pricing model (coming soon)
  • Private Link endpoints
  • Encryption at rest with customer managed keys

  • Record types
  • With-expressions
  • Top-level programs
  • Improved pattern matching
  • Improved target typing
  • Parameter null checking!!!!! (!)
