Introduction to the C# programming language

Developed at Microsoft by Mads Torgensen in 2000. It is a general-purpose and multi-paradigm programming language. It is commonly used for back-end programming, for building games, and especially desktop applications.

So, what are the benefits and limitations of the C# programming language?





- Compilation and execution times are very fast

- Scales automatically and it is updateable

- It is much safer than C and C++ because pointer types are not allowed

- Offers type safety

- It is ideal for development in Windows


- Not as flexible as C++

- It can have a steep learning curve

- Some errors can be complex in nature, therefore requiring sufficient knowledge and experience

- It has a poor x-platform GUI (Graphical User Interface)

- Doesn’t offer the best performance in terms of application performance benchmarks
