What is C#, and how is it used?

From software reliability and robustness to security and ease of use, Microsoft’s products leave a few things to be desired. However, if there is one thing most people agree the company did splendidly, it’s the C# programming script.

Well, what is C#, and how does it function?

C# is a modern, general-purpose, high-level programming language that’s object-oriented but also allows for component-oriented programming. The script was designed to be used with the .NET framework (or comparable ones, such as Mono), being heavily reliant on its component libraries. Using it to build apps for any other framework is impractical. Still, C# is highly versatile in its scope of uses. It allows developers to build all kinds of robust and secure mobile and desktop websites and applications, including cloud-based services, web apps, and games.

Since its development in 2000, C# has grown remarkably popular with developers. The .NET framework itself has been very popular as well, and this has driven up the demand to hire C# developers. According to the TIOBE index for October 2023, the programming language is fifth among others by rating, and it’s projected to supplant Java and assume fourth position before long. Moreover, searches for C# tutorials place it in fourth position according to PYPL’s popularity index. Little wonder the pool of old and new C# developers for hire never runs dry.

Why is C# popular, and how will it benefit your business?

As we’ve established, C# is very popular among developers of all skill and experience levels. Game developers are among its most dedicated users. For example, aspiring developers often learn to use Unity, a popular game engine that uses C# and .NET infrastructure. But the popularity of the programming language isn’t reflected only in developer fandom but also in the number of high-profile company projects it is used to undertake.

Many major companies and industries rely on C# for important aspects of their digital development. As we’ve mentioned, chief among them is Microsoft, which makes sense as a testimonial to the language’s quality and effectiveness. The company uses C# for its web and game development. Moreover, other high-profile C# operations like Stack Overflow, Service Titan, and Trustpilot hire C# engineers to develop their apps and web services. Even the City National Bank uses the language for its cloud-based applications.

So, why do all these companies rely on this programming script?

  • Rapid, Time-saving Development: Among the many reasons developers and firms alike love to rely on C# is just how much time it saves you on development. Startups that hire C# developers find that time spent poring over lines of code for errors is significantly slashed by the language's ease of reading and its static typing system (though it also has a dynamic typing system).

    Static typing means that expressions in C# can be assigned types that guarantee what values will result from evaluating the expressions. This provides some basic proof-of-correctness, detecting potential bugs before the code runs. Moreover, when declaring variables, a programmer can instruct the compiler to infer their static types, eliminating the need to annotate every expression with its type manually.

    Additionally, C# programming emphasizes simplicity and efficiency, reducing time spent writing complicated stacks of code
  • Highly Scalable and Easily Maintained: As your user or customer base expands, scaling your application software to cater to that growth becomes crucial. This is another reason it makes sense to hire dedicated C# developers—it's a highly scalable programming script. Given the rather strict rules of writing static code, programs written in C# are reliably consistent. So, suppose you needed to return to a C# project you worked on a long time ago; you will find that processes may have altered over time, but the code stack is pretty much the same. It is, therefore, easier to adjust and maintain these programs, as there's very little you have to change.
  • Object-oriented Programming: Many existing programming languages implement object-oriented programming to some extent; not very many have been able to pull off complete object-oriented development to the same degree as C#. At least, not many have pulled it off without ticking off their user base, especially as many developers already consider OOP a disaster to begin with.

    Among the many advantages of this object-orientedness, efficiency, and flexibility are the most relevant. Simply put, OOP provides well-defined structures for code and keeps it concise, making it faster and easier to execute. And speaking of ease, the programming paradigm is also relatively easy to learn, which is one reason it’s not so hard to find and hire C# developers. More people learn programming languages that function on paradigms that are easy to master.
  • Component-Oriented: While C# is entirely object-oriented, it also lends itself quite easily to component-oriented programming. This programming technique allows the developer to build their app similarly to how things work on an assembly line: components brought together to form a whole. The software components are self-contained and self-referential packets of functionality whose type definitions indicate their data and behavior. Through such concepts as ‘properties,’ ‘events,’ and ‘methods,’ C# allows coders to create and bring together these software components into an ‘assembly,’ increasing programming speed, ease,  and efficiency.
  • Large Developer Community: When you hire a dedicated C# developer, you’re not hiring a repository of all C# knowledge—just an individual who may be any degree of adept at using the programming language. Now and then, they will encounter a problem they have never quite seen before or just need some help tackling. Yet, using C# is unlike using a platform service with dedicated hotlines you can call for assistance. So, what to do?

    This is where the greater body of C# developers comes in handy. Companies that hire C# developers don’t just enjoy the individual employee’s expertise with the language. When necessary, the developer can also tap into and bring to bear the experience and insights of other more experienced developers from community platforms like StackOverflow, as well as .NET blogs and developer podcasts.
  • Cross-Platform: C# was originally designed for exclusive use by Windows-based developers, especially with the .NET framework being tightly bound up with Microsoft’s OS for a while. However, with the open-source .NET, running C on multiple other operating systems is now possible. For instance, .NET 7 is designed to run on OS like Linux and Mac, while .NET MAUI also allows you to run C# natively on Android and iOS mobile platforms.

Roles and responsibilities of a C# developer

The decision to hire C# engineers for development projects is one of the best any startup can make currently. But then, your developer won’t necessarily be able to do everything; even if they could, throwing them into the job would still be poor form without knowing and clearly defining their range of tasks. With no clarity provided, the resulting difficulty in focusing their energy efficiently will ultimately undermine all the speed provided by static typing, concise code, and OOP. So, what jobs will a C# engineer be taking on?

  • Design, Build, and Maintain Application Software for .NET: Startups hire C# engineers to develop functional, scalable, and easily maintainable apps for the .NET framework. For example, you may want to build web services for Windows, or perhaps you want a workflow app, a software tool that automates business-related tasks. Software like these are essentially .NET-based, and C# is the language to use for their development phase. To build apps like this, you need to have Microsoft’s Visual Studio and .NET framework 4.0 installed, and you also need to hire a C# developer.
  • Maintain and Optimize C# Applications and Code: This is the second biggest reason startups hire C# developers, especially when they operate performance-critical apps like games and financial software. C# code lends itself to easy maintenance thanks to its object-oriented programming, static code, and other factors. Moreover, a developer can also debug C# code very efficiently using the Microsoft C# extension on Visual Studio. Additionally, the developer must regularly optimize the performance of C# apps, which is quite easy to do with C#.
  • Create, Integrate, and Test New App Features: It’s necessary to develop new, cutting-edge features regularly to ensure an application keeps up with the times. A developer must be on the lookout for new features that will improve the user’s experience on the app and find ways to integrate them into the existing application structure. That means familiarity with C# code syntax and the general .NET infrastructure. That sounds like a job for a C# developer.
  • Write Clean, Concise, and Reusable C# Code: While businesses may hire dedicated C# developers primarily for software building, C# coding doesn’t necessarily always involve actively building an app. The programming language can be used to write stacks of code for later use. This another way to save time on development; instead of writing the code only when needed, a C# programmer can figure out which application elements are the company’s projects usually require. They can then write and store codes for such elements in directories and pull them out for use as needed.
  • Team Coordination and Project Reporting: Development projects often involve teams of developers, each individual having to tackle one aspect. It is the C# developer’s job to lead such a team or coordinate efforts with other members to ensure the project’s success. And especially when they lead such teams, C# developers also have to make periodic reports for the executives, keeping them informed on the project’s progress.

What skills should a C# developer have?

Given how easy it is to find C# developers for hire, you’ll almost certainly be drowning in resumés the moment you start looking. Additionally, growing specialization has made it so that there are loads of skills to look at, though they are often related. So, it may be difficult to sieve through and determine which specific skillset lends itself most readily to working on C# projects.

However, only some candidates know what they claim to, so any quick-acting CTO should spend more time vetting relevant skills than trying to determine which ones are relevant. Let’s make your job easier by showing you what skills to vet.

  • Familiarity with the .NET Framework: Any C# developer worth their salt must have more than a passing familiarity with .NET. They must have an in-depth knowledge of the framework and its architecture, including its source code, attributes, libraries, development runtimes, and testing tools. They must also understand its supported paradigms, ‘garbage collection,’ memory safety, supported languages, and compilation. It is also quite useful to hire C# engineers who understand related frameworks like Mono.
  • Proficiency with C# and Related Languages: Developers working on .NET or any related framework must be proficient with the C# language. This includes not just having experience with relevant command lines and file systems but also knowing the syntaxes, variables, functions, arrays, data types, classes, objects, and conditionals. C# uses similar syntax to other programming scripts like C and C++. In fact, both C++ and C# are based on C. So, it’s also beneficial to understand C-based languages in general, as any C# developer is likely to encounter them during their work.
  • Good Understanding of Object-Oriented Programming: C# is a hundred percent object-oriented, which makes it necessary to be very adept at this programming paradigm. This implies understanding key concepts, such as abstraction, encapsulation, polymorphism, and inheritance. C# also allows for component-oriented programming, though it doesn’t require it. Still, understanding how to use this additional paradigm can often help speed up projects.
  • Experience with Fullstack Development: C# is most known for its backed development, and that’s what most companies tend to hire C# developers for. However, it also has front-end uses, such as building web forms. App development projects have both front and back ends, and it makes the most sense to hire dedicated C# developers with ample experience in both makes the most sense.
  • Liaison and Reporting Skills: Whether working as the leader of the development team or just as part of it, a C# developer must have the skill to coordinate and work with others effectively and efficiently. And however well they can speak the language of computers, they must be just as good (if not better) at speaking the language of humans, especially of the executives to whom they must make pitches and regular progress reports.
