C# was designed to be simple and easy to use. Since C# is a high level language, it reads somewhat closer to English. In addition, C# abstracts away most of the complex details of the machine so you can focus on programming instead of worrying about the little details many consider both tedious and difficult.
C# is a statically-typed language, which means your code will be checked for errors before it gets built into an app. Errors will be easier to track down, and since statically-typed languages are also more strict with how you code something, the codebase in general will be more consistent and thus easier to maintain as it grows in size and complexity.
As a statically typed language, C# is faster than dynamically typed languages because things are more clearly defined. Thus, when the app is running, your machine’s resources will not be wasted on checking the definition of something in your code. The most common use for C# is cloud applications. The cloud is overtaking desktop environments because of its reliability, security, stability, and scalability. As a result, understanding C# in the cloud is a must for most coders and is often a recommended starting point for new developers.
With C# you can develop Web apps that run on Windows or Linux servers, mobile apps that run on Android, iOS, and Windows devices, and games that run on just about any device. It’s the language to learn for developing enterprise business software that runs on Windows desktops or servers. With so much software written in C#, there’s a high demand for it in the job market.
