C++ Classes Vs. C# Classes

With its implementation of C#, Microsoft have given way to some of C++'s nitty-gritty object-orientated features such as templates, and have also changed the way we create classes. In this article, Jordan compares and contrasts classes in both C++ and C#. He focuses on demonstrating how Microsoft has changed certain aspects of creating and using classes in C# including reference types, virtual functions and polymorphism.

C++ Classes Vs. C# Classes - Conclusion
(Page 6 of 6 )

Before I was familiar with C#, I came from both Visual Basic (4 years) and C++ (2 years) backgrounds, and I honestly have to say that C# is the most robust, flexible and pleasant language that I have ever used. I love its flexibility and its true 100% object-orientated nature.

If you're a C++ developer looking to break into the area of eCommerce, or if you're simply looking to make a change to a more modern programming language, then I think C# is definitely the way to go, for three reasons:

  • Once you know the C# language, you can create just about anything: windows applications, console applications, web applications, web services, etc.
  • All .NET languages are compiled into intermediate language (IL) and are optimised for the computer system on which they run before they are compiled.
  • It's very, very easy to migrate from C++ to C#.
