1998–2006
2000–
So so close. They almost nailed it. The super heavy base class library makes it really hard to handle also. The only thing that really saves it sometimes is Visual Studio. Although Xamarin is improving.
2001–
Started with the betas. I think that was 2001. Only use it when I have to these days.
2001–
Early adopter and still program with it every day. It's a well done language, not surprisingly coming from Anders Hejlsberg.
2001–2002
I only wrote enough to think that if I had to work with it daily, there were definitely worse languages to have to use.
2001–2003
2001–
Well I never learn C# but with both VB and Java background I just pick it up automatically. Not use it often until 2009.
2001–
2001–
I went to the SF VBits where MS announced .Net. It was so obviously better than the available (C++/VB) choices that I knew if I was sticking with MS, it would be with .Net. I started evangelizing to Interstate immediately. We had a bunch of VB/ActiveX, but the writing was on the wall. When I failed to gain converts/management support, I started looking at career options. That's when I discovered diveintopython.org and started taking Free Software seriously. If a free book about a free language could be that good, what else was I missing?
2001–
2001–
2002–
Used on and off when requested - very boring language albeit a capable one.
2002–
Learned C# and ASP .NET to develop the Ecologics waste management software. It's not as glamarous as it sounds.
2002–
2002–
Although C# and .NET were pretty obviously Microsoft's attempt to kill off Java (C# and Java are virtually identical over enormous ranges of code), it's evolved into a highly usable and pleasing alternative to Java. I taught the GUI course in C# for the last few years at the university, and my last programming book was on C#. I really can't see much to separate C# and Java from an ease-of-use viewpoint, and I'd consider writing a large GUI-oriented program in either.
2002–2007
Wrote couple "enterprisey" applications in C#, after learning Python couldn't make myself write anything in C# any longer
2002–
Started off with the first Beta of C# and took to it, glad to leave both VB6 and C++ behind for business development.
2002–2004
The startup I was working at decided that we should move off of Microsoft's Java implementation and get with the program--thus C#. Nice tooling and great integration with Windows APIs, but since that company folded I've never gone back to it.
2002–
2003–
Miguel de Icaza's Mono was my gateway, and I still think C# is the best compiled language available. Shame the Free Software world isn't very fond of it
2003–2011
I only wish I liked the entire .Net stack as much as I dig C# as a language. Had to use this as part of my enterprisey work.
2003–
My first job after my MSc was in a .NET shop. Spent five years solid commercial experience with this language. Still maintain some code.
2003–2004
groundstate for .net work
2003
One business transaction client app.
2003
Wrong a few programs out of interest in Mono.
2003–
2003–2005
Used for a course and then sparingly at my first job. Code monkey work with Visual Studio and ASP.NET
2003–2006
2003–
Personally I prefer C# to Java, I find I write less code to do the same job, especially when processing XML or implementing WebServices.
2004–2005
2004–2009
2004–
2004–2005
Worked on a few desktop apps and services using C#.
2004
2004–2006
I liked C#, and in recent years the language has become even better, but I stopped using Windows for development and I could never get excited about Mono.
2004–
2005–
2005–2006
Passing stint writing a Windows shell extension. Interesting stuff.
2005–2006
Used with .NET for an internship.

YAAAAK!!!:S:S:S:S
2005–
My current programming language that I'm professional at which I use everyday.
2005–2010
Forced to learn it for a university programming course.
2005
Wrote a small client server communication app
2005–2007
2005–2006
Only used the language for a course in college and have not done anything with it since.
2005–2006
2006–2008
The University mandated language for learning GUI programming & software design patterns. This cumulated in a simple vector-based image editor, with file-saving, undo history, and the usual bells & whistles.
2006–
2006–
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
2006
I started using it to see how it was. Felt exactly like Java.
2006–
2006–
2006–
Main language at work now.
2006–
The language I've used the most in my professional career.
2006–
I use it at work, not my decision. I loved it until I found Python.
2006–2007

Really enjoy using C#; mostly my language of choice when coding. Want to get into more advanced stuff someday, and move away from GUI coding.
2007–
A really great alternative to Java that runs on the .NET framework. While being so similar to Java it has some really nice elements which Java doesn't. I still prefer Windows Forms to Swing for GUI programming.
2007–
First taught myself when wanting to flirt with XNA. Not a bad word to say about it, it's my go-to language for Xbox and Windows development of all sorts.
2007–2010
2007–
Took it at college. It was good... problem is, I took it with ASP .net and its fucking stateful pages bullshit that was probably approved by the project leader while he was high on booze and weed. It's the only explanation D:<
2007–
2007
Liked it at first, but found it pointless later on.
2007–2009

2008–
Forced to learn it for a project, that is built on .Net. Not my favourite.

Learnt it as part of university course, but haven't used it since and see it as a bit pointless. Its basically Java for Windows.
2008–
Taught it at University, and is now my language of choice for rapidly hacking stuff together. It's great. It's like a version of Java that actually works. I use it over Visual Basic these days where possible.
2008–2009
Used it in my Banesco Internship
2008–
2008
2008–2009
C# is what Java should have been. It's still not a very interesting language, and its extra features serve more as a source of errors than a solution to them.
2008–
2008–
Started using it at Rice University for class projects starting with COMP 410. A real breath of fresh air after Java.
2008–
2008–
2009–
Only really learnt this for ASP.NET for teaching purposes. I can't believe quite how like Java it is though.
2009–
Used for databases and GUI courses in uni. Still prefer C++.
2009–
by far my favourite of all languages; i'm fairly sure this is a common view. easy to use, easy to understand, great fun to program in and can create really good looking programs with ease.
2009–
University taught, and that's where it ends. Nice but not portable, don't talk to me about Mono.
