Chapter 1: Running your first C# Program

C# is Microsoft’s premier programming language and is an integral part of the Microsoft .NET framework. C# is a completely object oriented and type safe language. If you are looking forward to developing applications with Microsoft’s programming technologies, C# is the best place to start. C# is currently being used for developing ASP.NET web applications, Windows forms, and WPF based desktop applications. With the advent of smart phones, C# is also used for Windows phone apps development and Android application development.

This book presents a basic overview of the core features of C# language. After reading this book you will be able to jump in to Microsoft’s advanced programming technologies, such as ASP.NET, WCF, WPF, and Windows phone. The first chapter of this book explains how to install the IDE, integrated development environment, and how to create your first C# application.


Installing the IDE

Creating and Running the First Application


Installing the IDE

The best software for developing C# applications is, without any doubt, Microsoft’s Visual Studio integrated environment. It contains everything it takes to build professional C# applications. However, the full edition of Visual Studio is commercial. In this book, we are going to develop C# applications without spending a cent. To do this, we are going to download a trimmed-down version of Visual Studio, which is totally free. This software has more than enough features and functionality for developing basic C# applications.
