C# is a general-purpose, multi-paradigm programming language developed by Microsoft as part of it's .NET initiative in 2000. It's easy to learn as a high-level language, that's easy to read and the fact that it's statically-typed makes it easy to debug and error-check.
A Brief History of C#
C# first appeared back in 2000 out of Microsoft. Developer Anders Heljsberg formed a team at Microsoft to build a new language during the development of the .NET framework. Originally called COOL which stood for "C-like Object Oriented Language" the team changed it to C# after deciding there could be some trademarking difficulties.
It's popularity has soared due to its flexibility and wide-ranging support via the Microsoft eco-system, making it the one of the most popular programming language in the world, with almost a third of developers using it in 2021, according to Stack Overflow.
