C# is a general-purpose, type-safe, object-oriented programming language.
C# has many features and balances simplicity, expressiveness, and performance.
The C# language is platform-neutral, but works well with the Microsoft .NET Framework.
C# is an implementation of the object-orientation paradigm, which includes encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism.
C# has a unified type system, where all types ultimately share a common base type.
C# can define an interface, class, event, delegate, event, and much more.
In C#, methods are only one kind of function member, which also includes properties and events.
Properties are function members that encapsulate a piece of an object's state, such as a button's color or a label's text, or price of a product.
Events are function members that simplify acting on object
C# has a formal way to create events.
C# is primarily a type-safe language.
C# supports static typing, meaning that the language enforces type safety at compile time.
C# allows parts of your code to be dynamically typed via
C# relies on the runtime to perform automatic memory management.
The Common Language Runtime(CLR) has a garbage collector that executes as part of your program, reclaiming memory for objects that are no longer referenced.
C# is typically used for writing code that runs on Windows platforms.
The design of C# closely maps to the design of Microsoft's Common Language Runtime (CLR).
CLR provides these runtime features.
C# type system maps closely to the CLR type system.
The .NET Framework consists of the CLR and a set of libraries.
The CLR is the runtime for executing managed code.
