Removing Switch-Case Statement and using Pattern Matching in C#

In this article, we discuss the problems with switch-case statements, including the difficulty in maintaining and modifying them, as well as the issue of mixing data and behavior. We then explore how to move from switch-case to object-oriented code and introduce pattern matching in C# as a solution. Pattern matching allows for more readable and maintainable code, as well as providing better performance in some cases. Overall, we argue that pattern matching is a superior alternative to the switch-case statement in most situations.
