What is C#?

C# (pronounced as C sharp) is a type of programing language, which has been built on the characteristics of the C Programming language. It is a general-purpose, object-oriented programming (OOP) language that aims to provide high-level features for program organization. As both a successor of C and yet being an OOP language, it can be coded in both ways, hence making it a hybrid language.

C# adds a collection of pre-defined classes to the original C, which can be utilized multiple times. It also enables the overloading of certain operators such as addition and includes several other operators such as comparison, arithmetic, bit manipulation, logical operators, etc. It also incorporates essential concepts such as polymorphism, virtual and friend functions, templates, namespaces and pointers.

C# is popularly utilized as with system/application software and drivers, client-server applications, as well as with embedded firmware.
