C# is a general-purpose, modern and object-oriented programming language pronounced as “C sharp”. It was developed by Microsoft led by Anders Hejlsberg and his team within the .Net initiative and was approved by the European Computer Manufacturers Association (ECMA) and International Standards Organization (ISO). C# is among the languages for Common Language Infrastructure and the current version of C# is version 7.2. C# is a lot similar to Java syntactically and is easy for the users who have knowledge of C, C++ or Java.
C# is a simple, modern, and object-oriented programming language. The purpose of C# was to develop a programming language that is not only easy to learn but also supports modern day functionality for all kinds of software development. If you look at the history of programming languages and their features, each programming language was designed for a specific purpose to solve a specific need at that time.
C# language however was designed to keep business and enterprises needs in mind. C# language was designed for businesses to build all kinds of software by using one single programming language. C# provides functionality to support modern day software development. C# supports Web, Mobile, and app development needs. Some of the modern-day programming language features C# supports are generics, var types, auto initialization of types and collections, lambda expressions, dynamic programming, asynchronous programming, tuples, pattern matching, advanced debugging and exception handling, and more. C# language syntaxes are influenced from C++, Java, Pascal and few other languages that are easy to adopt. C# also avoids complexity and unstructured language features.
C# Performance Optimization
C# is completely object-oriented. The rare attribute that most common languages fail to accomplish. Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) offers efficiency and flexibility, such as building Applications Performance Management(APM) software. C#, together with other languages, build this kind of software. Implementing an APM solution can help software developers with performance optimization during staging, production, and post-production. It provides application performance insights and how to troubleshoot issues when it arises.
Stackify’s APM solution Retrace provides performance analysis and optimization of your applications. For example, it will give you recommendations on how to handle C# exceptions and other best practices.
