C# vs Haskell: What are the differences?
C# and Haskell can be categorized as "Languages" tools.
"Cool syntax" is the primary reason why developers consider C# over the competitors, whereas "Purely-functional programming " was stated as the key factor in picking Haskell.
According to the StackShare community, C# has a broader approval, being mentioned in 697 company stacks & 1163 developers stacks; compared to Haskell, which is listed in 33 company stacks and 47 developer stacks.
Hello, I am trying to network so that I can find a business partner that knows how to code a game/ new social media site that can be on any platform like PlayStation, web, Xbox, PC, Mac, Apple IOS, Android and so forth. If anyone is interested to hear my pich, please let me know! Thank you! Haley Kirchner
In 2015 as Xelex Digital was paving a new technology path, moving from ASP.NET web services and web applications, we knew that we wanted to move to a more modular decoupled base of applications centered around REST APIs.
To that end we spent several months studying API design patterns and decided to use our own adaptation of CRUD, specifically a SCRUD pattern that elevates query params to a more central role via the Search action.
Once we nailed down the API design pattern it was time to decide what language(s) our new APIs would be built upon. Our team has always been driven by the right tool for the job rather than what we know best. That said, in balancing practicality we chose to focus on 3 options that our team had deep experience with and knew the pros and cons of.
That left us with two options. We went a very unconventional route for deciding between the two. We built MVP APIs on both. The interfaces were identical and interchangeable. What we found was easily quantifiable differences.
We were able to iterate on our Node based APIs much more rapidly than we were our C# APIs. For us this was owed to the community coupled with the extremely dynamic nature of JS. There were tradeoffs we considered, latency was (acceptably) higher on requests to our Node APIs. No strong types to protect us from ourselves, but we've rarely found that to be an issue.
As such we decided to commit resources to our Node APIs and push it out as the core brain of our new system. We haven't looked back since. It has consistently met our needs, scaling with us, getting better with time as continually pour into and expand our capabilities.
C# and .Net were obvious choices for us at LiveTiles given our investment in the Microsoft ecosystem. It enabled us to harness of the .Net framework to build ASP.Net MVC, WebAPI, and Serverless applications very easily. Coupled with the high productivity of Visual Studio, it's the native tongue of Microsoft technology.
