First Step of Learning C# to Become a Developer
Many people will read the above title as C-hash. But the
people, who are starting to learn this language, must know that it is
pronounced as C-sharp. It is a general-purpose language with multi-paradigm programming
which encompasses strong typing,
declarative, imperative, generic, functional, object-oriented,
and component-oriented disciplines. C#is developed as a .Net initiative and later approved as a
standard language. It is designed for
the common language infrastructure.
The Language comes with plenty of features and some of them
are listed below:
Methods and Functions
Language Integrated Query-LINQ
The major implementation of the language is with Visual
Basic, .Net, core, J#, Pascal, etc.
The Design goals of the language were:
The language was intended to be simple, general
purpose and modern with object-oriented
The implementation of the language provides
support for engineering principles thereby making the software more robust,
durable, and improves productivity.
It was meant for the development of software
components which will be suitable for deployment along the distributed
The portability was also an important factor for
the language. The language support
to be used for writing applications for
the embedded and the hosted systems. The language consists of dedicated
functions which enhance the working of the Operating
The main goal was to provide economic growth in
power processing and memory requirements.
The syntax of C# is very similar to that of other C
languages such as C, C++, and Java. The syntax consists of:
Semicolons that are used to denote the end of a statement.
Curly brackets are used to enclose the group
statements. The Statements are grouped into functions, functions into classes,
and classes into namespaces.
Variables are the values assigned with a single
Equal to sign (=), whereas compared with two consecutive equal signs (==).
The Square brackets are used for arrays to
declare them and get a value in the specified
One very important application of the C# language is its
standardization under the ISO and Ecma
standards which makes it a very significant, reasonable, and non-discriminatory
licensing protection criterion for the developers.
Microsoft is the leading developer of the C# compiler and its various set of
tools. The Roslyn compiler which was entirely written in managed C# code is available to the user with
functionality surfaced APIs. But other compilers include the implementation of the
Common Language Infrastructure and.Net class libraries such as Mono,
DotGNU, Rotor, Xamarin, etc.
The Development process of C# with VB, Net, ASP.Net, etc is not
an easy task. It is the development process where the bugs and defects start.
But once an effective code is built with these languages combined, the
developer will have software encoded in the most secure and efficient programming language which will protect it
from software piracy too.
