C# is the most popular language for .NET development. With .NET you can target any application type running on any platform. Reuse your skills, code, and favorite libraries across all of them in a familiar environment. That means you can build apps faster, with less cost.
From mobile applications running on iOS and Android, to enterprise server applications running on Windows Server and Linux, or high-scale microservices running in the cloud, .NET provides a solution for you.
Explore the concepts and syntax of the C# programming language with live coding demos in our C# for Beginners video series.
Once you learn the basics, explore other lessons at the .NET videos page where you can learn to build any type of app with C#.

.NET is fast. Really fast! That means applications provide better response times and require less compute power.
The popular TechEmpower benchmark compares web application frameworks with tasks like JSON serialization, database access, and server side template rendering – .NET performs faster than any other popular framework.

What Does It Mean to Reach Net-Zero Emissions?
Net-zero emissions will be achieved when all GHG emissions released by human activities are counterbalanced by removing GHGs from the atmosphere in a process known as carbon removal.
First and foremost, human-caused emissions (such as those from fossil-fueled vehicles and factories) should be reduced as close to zero as possible. Any remaining GHGs should then be balanced with an equivalent amount of carbon removal, which can happen through things like restoring forests or using direct air capture and storage (DACS) technology.
