The Basics of C#: A "HelloWorld" Application
(Page 1 of 5 )

C# is a new language introduced by Microsoft and it is included in their new evolutionary .NET environment. It has collected the best features and aspects of many other programming languages including Visual Basic and C++.

Personally, it's my language of choice from those currently available for .NET, even though my past experiences have been with Visual Basic instead of C++. The reasons I chose C# instead of VB.NET are:
  1. It overcomes and improves on the problems present in other well known programming languages.
  2. It's specifically designed for .NET, meaning that theoretically it will perform better than any of the other .NET languages.
  3. VB.NET is as hard, if not harder to learn than C# and is nothing like Visual Basic 6.
  4. It's new! It gives you the feeling of fresh start.
In this article I will cover the basics of creating a simple C# application. You will need to have either the .NET framework Beta 2 or release candidate installed on your computer for the examples found in this article to work. You can download the .NET framework for free here
