C# team members Shon Katzenberger, Scott Wiltamuth, Todd Proebsting, Erik Meijer, Peter Hallam, Anders Hejlsberg, and Peter Sollich were recently awarded a Technical Recognition Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement for their work on the C# language. This award is particularly meaningful to the recipients as it is awarded by their technical peers. It’s quite an honor.
Here we talk about the award, what it means, and then dig into the history, present and future of C#. We also dig into LINQ (why did we add it to the language? Does dynamic construct additions to imperative languages pollute the language? What does LINQ really mean in the context of the evolution of C#? The answers herein will surprise you, if you haven’t thought hard about it already…)
