How to Learn
- Bootcamps to Get You Started
C#, pronounced “C Sharp,” is a general-purpose programming language originally designed by Microsoft to be used for developing apps on the Microsoft platform. Some developers have praised it for being intuitive and pleasant to use, and it’s a popular starting language for beginners with no prior coding experience. Students who are interested in building apps for the Microsoft platform should learn C#, and using C# is also recommended when developing for the Unity game engine.
C# is included in many bootcamps and programs for people who are interested in becoming software developers (who build applications) or web developers (who build websites). The median salary for software developers is $105,000, and the median salary for web developers is $70,000. Both of these employment sectors are growing rapidly, at a rate of 21% and 13% respectively, which is much faster than the 5% projected rate of growth across all occupations.
To help students find the program with the structure and content that’s right for them, SwitchUp has compiled alumni reviews that range from 1 to 5 stars for web development and software development bootcamps that include training in the C# programming language.
