C#

C# (pronounced "see-sharp") is a multi-paradigm programming language developed by Microsoft for the .NET platform. It is designed to balance power and ease of use, providing developers with a flexible tool for creating applications ranging from simple console utilities to complex enterprise systems. C# syntax draws from C and C++ but has evolved over time through standardization efforts led by Microsoft. The language supports strong typing, declarative syntax and type inference, asynchronous programming features via the async/await keywords, LINQ (Language-Integrated Query), generic types/methods, iteration constructs like foreach loops, and more recently record types in C# 9.
