Json Schema Patterns in .NET - Pattern matching and discriminated unions

Json Schema Patterns in .NET - Pattern matching and discriminated unions

In this post, we'll explore how to leverage common patterns in C# and JSON schema to create more effective code. Specifically, we'll look at how to use oneOf to create discriminated unions and pattern matching to simplify complex code.

Using JSON schema with C# allows developers to take advantage of the strong typing and compile-time checks provided by the language. By using oneOf, you can create a discriminated union that maps to JSON schema descriptions. This allows you to represent complex data structures in a clear and concise manner.

Pattern matching is another powerful tool that simplifies complex code. It allows you to write code that responds to different data shapes by testing its properties and handling them in specific ways. This is an especially useful tool when working with large datasets with many possible permutations.

By leveraging these patterns in combination, you can create a more efficient, effective coding process in .NET. This post is a must-read for anyone looking to optimize their development workflow and improve their code quality.
