C# (pronounced C-sharp) is a new object oriented language from Microsoft and is derived from C and C++. It also borrows a lot of concepts from Java too including garbage collection. More at http://msdn.microsof...csharpintro.asp

C# has been around for a while now. You only just heard about it?
I love C#
I think its easier than C but very powerful. I love the support from Microsoft.

Since C#, AFAIK, debuted with the .NET Framework 1.0, that'd mark it's public debut as January 2002. However, the C# spec was submitted to the ECMA in August 2000, and approved in December 2001.
So - yeah, it's been out and about for awhile now and has garnered a lot of attention. If you're doing Windows programming, I'm surprised you've just heard of it....

I've read a little about C# but haven't really attempted to learn it, is it a difficult language to learn?

LOL no, I am currently an intern at a software company, I'm going to start my Junior year in the fall. My majors are Computer Science and Business Management. The reason I said that C# saved my life is because until this internship I hated coding, I swore that was the one thing I would not do with my life was waste my time coding. However I came to realize that to better myself in terms of being more likely to use my management skills I should learn the technical skills. Because I know how much people hate working for a boss that is a completely oblivious to what you're working on. I say C# and OOP saved my life because the .NET technologies are a wonderful set of tools and I found it (with almost no programming background) quite easy to learn. Since I've been working I have learned an valuable set of skills including the .NET development, general programming concepts that I never learned in college, and crazy database programming and normalization. I definately don't plan on coding for the rest of my life, but as of right now I actually enjoy the work I do. I'm just glad I'm not one of those people who go to college and change their major 10 times to only fail out of college after 2 years....

C# is very easy to learn. I'm glad that it helped you. Bosses that don't know anything are the worst. They just assume the impossible can be done or request it. Its good that you are learning the tech side of things before entering the field.

In musical terminology when you # sharp something you go up higher.. Is this somewhat the same for programming technology? Or are they totally incomparable..sharps?
