History of C# – Past present and future

Here is a nice summary of the past present and future of C# I captured from a  nice blog

  • C#1 was all about delivering a new language for a new platform.
  • C#2 was all about providing generics to improve strong typing, especially in collection handling situations.
  • C#3 was all about letting write strongly typed queries abstracted from the date source. As a consequence C#3 fosters a more declarative way of programming.
  • C#4 was mainly about dynamic programming to inter-operate with dynamic programming environment.
  • C#5 will be concerned with meta-programming.
