C# is an excellent language. I use it both for personal and academic work. It is like Java that doesn't suck. It allows you to be performant when you need it, and functional/maintainable when you want it. .Net core opens up a lot of possibilities for C# to be used on different platforms. Best features in my opinion(and there are many more):

  • Value types enable really efficient code.
  • async/await makes concurrency much easier.
  • string interpolation and pattern matching.
  • Functional programming (Linq and expressions).
  • Interop with other .net languages (F#).
  • Span<T> and stackalloc

My current C# project is a data serialization library github.com/dhhoang/IonDotnet and is welcoming contribution. Pls send me PR/issue 🤗 if you're interested.
