C# is a modern object-oriented programming language developed by Anders Hejlsberg at Microsoftin 2000 in 2000 as a rival to Java. The C# language is very similar to Java. C# was created because Sun Microsystems (now part of Oracle Corporation) did not want Microsoft to make changes to Java. Thus Microsoft decided to create their own language programming language instead.
C# has grown quickly since it was first created, with extensive support from Microsoft, helping it to gain a large following; it is now one of the most popular programming languages in the world.
It is a general-purpose language designed for developing apps on the Microsoft platform and requires the .NET framework on Windows to work. C# is often thought of as a hybrid that takes the best of C and C++ to create a truly modernized language. Although the .NET framework supports several other coding languages, C# has quickly become one of the most popular.
C# can be used to create almost anything but is particularly strong at building Windows desktop applications and games. C# can also be used to develop web applications and has become increasingly popular for mobile development too. Cross-platform tools such as Xamarin allow apps written in C# to be used on almost any mobile device.
