re: Why C# is (one of) my favorite language? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I dislike C# not because is bad, it's pretty good compared with other languages, but I hate the Microsoft coding conventions, especially functions and methods starting with uppercase characters. I tried several times to start projects in C# but for me it's really hard understand the code, even when I'm used to program in other of languages with worst readability (looking at you java).

Also the lack of support for hotswapping code at runtime makes the coding experience less enjoyable.

 

I agree that Microsoft has a weird code convention, especially in C++ (the Hungarian notation is not for modern times) but, once you get used to that format, is not so bad.

 

I think the worst convention is sticking Exception at the end. InvalidArgument has everything you need in the name without extending it to InvalidArgumentException, it is just extra characters that take up space

Sometimes C# is very verbose, but not at the level of Java
