I'll give this article credit for actually showing a case where this isn't just a case of moving the type name from right to left but actually allows you to omit the type when you couldn't before.
C#
//old
myObject.Friend = new Friend("Bob");

//new
myObject.Friend = new("Bob");
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
--Zachris Topelius

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
