c# programming

Pronounced see sharp, C# is a programming language based on C++ and Java developed by Microsoft. It was introduced to the public in June 2000 with the announcement of the .NET ("dot net") framework. In 2003, the C# language became an ISO standard.

C# helps developers create XML (extensible markup language) web services and Microsoft .NET-connected applications for Windows operating systems and the Internet.

Below is a basic example of printing "HelloWorld!" to the screen using the C# programming language.

public class HelloWorld
 public static void Main()
  System.Console.WriteLine("Hello World!");
