What is C#
« on: November 19, 2010, 01:21:34 PM »
C# (pronounced "see sharp")[6] is a multi-paradigm programming language encompassing imperative, declarative, functional, generic, object-oriented (class-based), and component-oriented programming disciplines. It was developed by Microsoft within the .NET initiative and later approved as a standard by Ecma (ECMA-334) and ISO (ISO/IEC 23270). C# is one of the programming languages designed for the Common Language Infrastructure.

C# is intended to be a simple, modern, general-purpose, object-oriented programming language.[7] Its development team is led by Anders Hejlsberg. The most recent version is C# 4.0, which was released on April 12, 2010.

Code example:
Code: [Select]
using System;
class ExampleClass
    static void Main()
        Console.WriteLine("Hello, world!");
