You’ve seen some examples of C# code in action, but learning a programming language is more than just memorizing commands: it’s understanding how it differs from other technologies, joining its community, and applying it to real-life problems. Here’s what you need to know:

C# is employable: Thanks to good design and the popularity of frameworks supporting the language, C# can get you access to a lot of great jobs.
