Programming languages are the building blocks of computer programs and applications. They establish algorithms, or sets of instructions, to perform tasks such as data processing or calculation, and they tell programs how to create different outputs. Outputs are the communications between the computer and the world outside—humans or other information processing systems. With that bit of overview, you’re ready to learn more about why C# is one of the most popular programming languages.
What is it?
Microsoft developed C# around 2000 as an object-oriented programming language. This means that it focuses on the objects being manipulated rather than the actions required to manipulate them. Because of this, C# makes it easier to organize data. It’s also highly versatile, making it easier to code large projects. Using the .NET framework, developers can build websites, mobile applications, databases, and more with C#.
How is it used?
C# is used for a diverse array of projects and is especially popular for game development using the Unity platform. As a Microsoft founded language, it is used widely in Microsoft products, such as Excel and Windows. Because it is a hybrid of C and C++, C# competes with Java and remains one of the most popular languages around. It’s also flexible. It is a great language for beginners, but it is also capable of complex tasks, which means there is always room to learn more and complete more advanced projects.
Why should I learn it?
As one of the most in-demand programming languages, C# is a useful skill. It is also one of the easiest languages to learn. As a high-level language, it’s not difficult to read, and the .NET framework manages many of the complex tasks of programming. There are other great advantages for beginners. For example, because it is a statically typed language, it is easier to find errors.
