C# (or C-Sharp) is a compiled, multi-paradigm programming language developed by Microsoft, which first appeared in 2000.

C# was influenced by languages like C++ and Java, and aims to be a modern object-oriented programming language. The latest release of C# was 5.0, released August 15, 2012. It is part of Microsoft's .NET Framework, and thus requires the end-user to have the .NET Framework runtimes installed in order to run applications created with it.


A simple "Hello, World!" application in C#, using a console application.

<csharp>using System;

namespace Test {

class HelloWorld {

public static void Main(string[] args) {

Console.WriteLine ("Hello, World!"); } } }</csharp>


Hello, World!

We can also get user input, and use it accordingly.

<csharp>using System;

namespace Test {

class SayHi {

public static void Main(string[] args) {

string name;

Console.Write ("What is your name?: ");

name = Console.ReadLine ();

Console.WriteLine ("Hello there, {0}!", name); } } }</csharp>

This outputs: (Having entered out name as Justin)

What is your name?: Justin

Hello there, Justin!
