    C# anyone?

    Sorry, I just want to gather some motivation to learn C# here.


    1. Anyone using C#?

    2. Why is it better than another .NET languages?

    3. How do you think about Java and Ruby?

    4. Is it better for small project?

    5. How about the learning cost?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Anyone using C#?
    Aye

    2. Why is it better than another .NET languages?
    Syntactically it's more pleasant than vb.net and c++/cli. It also has some features like partial classes that the others does not have (yet).

    3. How do you think about Java and Ruby?
    I used java before, and I liked it. I find little use for it today though.

    4. Is it better for small project?
    C# and .NET in general is excellent for RAD (rapid application development), quickly setting up a functional application.

    5. How about the learning cost?
    I found C# easy to learn having earlier experience with C/C++/Java. It all depends on you. If you come from the world of VB perhaps VB.NET is the way to start. Possibly moving to C# later when you get the hang of .NET.

    I prefer the syntax of C#, having started in C and C++ myself. Additionally, it is the recommended choice at work.

    I've never tried Ruby, so I can't voice an opinion there. Java was one of my first languages, and I remember writing web applets as a kid, back when Java web games were hot. (before Flash took that niche) Was a bit of an inspiration. I lost some respect for Java when I took the AP Comp Sci test. (The examples and questions were... bad.) I've regained some respect for it, mostly from C# actually, as a way to quickly get things done, but I do not program in it at this time.

    I've done a lot of small tools in C#. It's great for small things, mostly because of the large coverage offered by the .Net framework, and the lack of a suitable scripting language. (Where I would usually use a bash or python script)

    If you know C or C++, or especially Java, I would say it's not too hard to pick up. C#, as a language, is less complex than C++. Most of the trouble is quirks and oddities in the .Net framework itself, not the language.

    I would definitely recommend picking it up, as it's getting used in the workplace, and employers are looking for it. I'm glad that I picked it up myself.
