Why should you learn CSharp?
Maybe you ask yourself, why should I learn CSharp? To answer this question I have written this article. It will give you plenty of reasons to learn CSharp :).
Why you should learn CSharp
It is easy to learn. CSharp was developed to be simple to use. That makes it quite easy to learn too. Code written in CSharp is rather easy to read, because it is very close to the english language. So you don’t have to bother what the PC exactly does with the code and can focus on programming it.
Game development the easy way
Easy to maintain
CSharp is very easy to maintain. The IDE Visual Studio really help to find errors very quickly.
As CSharp is a static typed language, Datatypes of variables are always set. This makes the language faster than dynamic typed languages.
CSharp has one of the biggest communities. Why is that important you ask? Well, due to this fact there are many more coding examples, programmers to help you out, forum posts with solutions and much more to find. There is a huge library of solutions to problems on stack overflow, and a big chunk of them is for CSharp. It is the fourth biggest Community. That is extremely useful.
JOBS JOBS JOBS
Many websites, programs, games etc. were written in CSharp. This results in an unbroken demand for developers knowing CSharp. Especially in the game development area, thanks to Unity.
Demand is growing
According to http://www.bestprogramminglanguagefor.me/why-learn-c-sharp demand for CSharp courses has grown by 22% in 2015. So it is very future prone. Also, since CSharp is from Microsoft (one of the biggest players in IT), it is very likely that it will see further growing in the future.
VR is the future (at least many specialists expect that). Programms for Virtual Reality are very easily developed with Unity in CSharp. Hereby it doesn’t matter if it is Occulus Rift, HTC Vive or Hololense. CSharp is the right language in either case.
Easily transferable skills
Once you know CSharp, other programming languages such as Java are very easy to learn, as the languages are very similar. You then simply have to learn some minor details and can get going rather quickly.
Even if many of the reasons are also true for other languages, others are unique to CSharp. So I can highly recommend to learn CSharp.
