I really like the features that C# offers as a modern language. It's a lot better than writing applications in C, especially since I often find myself reinventing wheels in C that I don't have to reinvent in C#, because the .NET core library already has those things available.


What I find cool about C# is how readily anders has been accepting good ideas from other languages. I've really been digging stuff like implicit typing with var, and am completely head over heels in love with lambdas, and absolutely adore extension methods.

It is nice to see a mainstream language walk the line between being too conservative about what is appropriate in a statically typed language, and too radical by including everything under the sun.
