I know that Coderanch was born as a community of Java programmers, so that naming a Microsoft language may sound odd.. but since its origins, CoreRanch grew to offer forums to discuss about HTML, Javascript, C++, Python and more and more languages and technologies, and I think anyone can agree that C# is definitely a mainstream language.

I think that offering a forum dedicated to C# / .NET / .NET Core (the open sourced version of .NET)  may be attractive for many programmers that, like me, love Java, use Java every day but are interested in learning and deepen a technology that can't be ignored.

Thanks for your time and for all the great work you're doing to keep this community amazing.

Create it.  Please let me know the moment it is created - I wish to immediately set it as less important than the other forums for default users.

I went to create it and it exists. My guess is another mod just created it and hasn't posted here yet.

Claude,
It is likely not many people around here have a lot of C# knowledge. That said, I recommend you start creating some posts (or wiki pages) to get some activity going in your new forum.

Yes, I created it about 12 hours ago. I notified Paul right away on the understanding that he wanted to configure it in some way but didn't post about it yet for that reason.

Anyway there are some posts in other forums, particularly the C/C++ forum, so they could perhaps be copied into the new forum to get it started.

Jeanne,

I will post something in C# forum as soon as possibile, meanwhile Paul's idea to move old posts on C# in the new forum seems great.
By the way, thanks for accepting forum creation proposal !
