The language has been designed for Common Language Infrastructure, and launched as a simple, latest, common use, object oriented language and the latest version of the language was launched on the 12th of April, last year.


ECMA has a big name and in its standard list and some of the design goals for C Sharp are that it was intended to be simple, modern, common purpose and object oriented programming language. The language should be able to provide aid to the software engineers for strong type checking, array bounds checking as well as automatic garbage collection, programmer productivity is also really important in this regard. Software components that have been made to suit distributed environments can be made with the aid of this language.
