C# 7.1 – Directly await tasks in Main

Starting in C# 7.1, you can directly await in Main:

static async Task Main(string[] args) { while (true) { Console.WriteLine("I'm looping"); await Task.Delay(5000); } }

Previously I would’ve written this code like this:

static void Main(string[] args) { Task.Run(async () => { while (true) { Console.WriteLine("Looping"); await Task.Delay(5000); } }); Console.Read(); }
