Frequently asked questions about C#
What is C#?
C# (pronounced as “C-Sharp”) is a general-purpose, modern and object-oriented programming language developed by Microsoft as part of their .NET platform. It was primarily created to be a direct competitor to the Java programming language in the enterprise software landscape.
Although inspired by C++ and Java, C# is a distinct language with its own unique design and specification. It’s a high level language meaning that all hardware details are abstracted away especially memory management.

How long does it take to learn C#?
You can learn C# in about a month or even less if you are already familiar with object-oriented programming and other similar languages like C++ or Java.
What are the prerequisites for learning C#?
C# is multi-paradigm but is primarily designed around object-oriented programming so understanding this paradigm is important to learn C#. It’s also a managed language meaning it needs .NET framework to execute, so learning the ecosystem is a soft prerequisite.
