    Lightbulb C# Contests

    Is there ever going to be any ADC's for C#? Because that would be sick, to say the least.

    Unlikely. If I stray from C/C++ then I'll probably get requests for Java contests, Perl contests, Python contests, etc...

    >Because that would be sick, to say the least.
    Then why did you ask?
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Actually, C# is a great language... too bad more people don't give it a shot.

    I suppose a C# contest would be kind've odd though...

    We could always have a Windows Form control contest.

    This is a C programming board, right? That (should) include ALL flavours of C, which C# is certainly a member of. C# is definitely capabale of far more than winform applications, that's just the unfortunate bias that a lot of people have and perpetuate around the 'net.

    C# is NOT a member of C or C++. C# is its own language, which has absolutely nothing to do with C. What you're saying is "Since Java is syntaicly similar to C++, it must be C."

    Honestly, I don't see why there is even a C# forum on this site at all. If there isn't a Java forum, why on earth is there a C# forum? Oh, I get it, because the name has a C in it. Absurd. Pascal has a C in it, you don't see a forum for it here.

    That's one thing that has bugged me ever since the forum showed up here. C# has nothing to do with C. If you say it does, then I argue that Java has as much, if not more to do with C than C# does. But again, there's no forum for it here.

    For that matter, there should be a Basic forum too. Or why not LPC? It's more C based than C# should ever hope to be.

    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    If you don't feel that C has any right to be part of the "C family", then it shouldn't be on these forums. But since it is, then I think that it has a right to its own share of the contests.

    I'd love a C# contest. We could even allow C++ programmers to enter (they could make DLL's and then we could call the unmanaged functions from them, though they'd be a bit faster).
