C-Sharp Coding

No, it is not C hashtag or C number! It is C sharp. hehe 🤦‍♂️😂. Now we have got that out of the way, let’s get started! C# was developed by Microsoft with their ‘.NET’ framework as a general purpose programming language. It is often used to create windows form applications but also has many other uses. Since it is a general purpose language it works with many different programming paradigms / programming styles. For example OOP (Object Oriented Programming) and event driven programming.

So what is C# used for? As stated before, it is a general purpose programming language so it can be used in multiple industries. It can be used to make windows phone apps, Xbox games and even specific business applications that are used on the desktop. So, it can run on a variety of devices and hardware.

Overall C# is a very powerful language that can be used in many applications, even though it does come with its issues. Learn about C#’s issues in this video: What is C#?. Start learning and developing with C# applications today with the help of our Resources page and our discord server.
