Introduction of C#
C# is a modern and object-oriented programming language pronounced as "C sharp" for general purposes. It has been developed and accepted by the European Computer Manufacturers Association (ECMA) and the International Standards Organization (ISO) by Microsoft, led by Anders Hejlsberg and his team within the .Net initiative. C# is among the Common Language Infrastructure languages and version 7.2 is the latest version of C#. C# is syntactically very similar to Java and is simple for users who have studied about C, C++ or Java.
Theoretically, C# may be compiled into machine code, but it's still used in real life in tandem with the .NET system. Thus, applications written in C# include the installation of the .NET system on the machine running the programme. Although the .NET framework enables a wide variety of languages to be used, C# is often referred to as THE .NET language, possibly because it was built together with the framework.
For being famous and in demand, C# has several other explanations. Some of the reasons are listed below:
Simple to begin: C# is a high-level language, so it is closer to other common programming languages, such as C, C++, and Java, making it easy for everyone to learn.
Widely used for Desktop and Web Application development: C# is widely used for the development of web and desktop applications. It is one of the most common languages used for technical desktop applications. C# is their first choice if someone wants to build Microsoft apps.
Game Development: In game development, C# is commonly used and will continue to rule. With Microsoft, C# incorporates and therefore has a wide target audience. The C# functionality, such as Automatic Garbage Collection, interfaces, object-oriented, etc., makes C# a common language for game creation.
Characteristics of C#
Similar to other programming languages, such as c++ and java, C# includes different features. In C#, there are some additional features that make it distinct from other languages.
C# is a modern programming language, and the programmes are very powerful and easy to construct.
In the development of windows, network, and computer applications, C# is helpful.
By clearing unused items, C# delivers automated memory management.
C# is a programming language that is type-safe, and it makes unchecked type casts impossible to execute.
For error detection and recovery, C# offers a standardised and extensible approach.
C# is a structure-oriented programming language and, because of automatic scalability, the compilation and execution of C# applications are faster.
