C# Programming Language Profile

C#

C# (pronounced “See Sharp”) is a multi-purpose computer programming language suitable for a wide variety of development needs.

C# combines the power and flexibility of C++ with the simplicity of Visual Basic. It encompasses strong typing, imperative, declarative, functional, generic, object-oriented (class-based), and component-oriented programming disciplines with support for the concepts of encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism. It incorporates many elements of the expression and statement syntax of C, and has a more refined object-oriented programming syntax than C++.

C# is one of the more popular programming languages, but is not as widely used as say C, Java, C++ or PHP.
