If you're looking to get started with learning C#, I recommend looking into .NET Core. This is the most modern software framework that lets you build apps in C#.

.NET Core is created by Microsoft, and their official documentation provides some really easy tutorials, which also tell you what you need to install to get started.

This tutorial walks you through creating a really simple console app that logs "Hello World" to the console. As you'll see when you follow the tutorial, you don't need to worry about compiling.

If you want to try something more complicated and build a whole website with a server + a database, this tutorial series walks you through the whole process.
