13. C# > C#

C#

How long is the future of C#? You’ve been on it for almost 10 years.

Anders: C# the project started in late December of ’98, so we’re coming up on our 10-year anniversary. That’s not 10 years of existing in the industry, but it’s 10 years since inception internally. I’d say we’ve got another 10 years at least, but it all depends. I’ve said I’ve long given up predicting the far-off future of this industry because no one ever gets it right anyway. But I certainly see a strong healthy future for C#. We’re not done innovating, and there’s plenty of work still to do.

When I look at the evolution of C# from an application domain standpoint, I see the desire to replace C++ as a systems programming language.
