C# vs HTML5: What are the differences?

C#: Simple, general-purpose, object-oriented programming language for the .NET platform. C# (pronounced "See Sharp") is a simple, modern, object-oriented, and type-safe programming language. C# has its roots in the C family of languages and will be immediately familiar to C, C++, Java, and JavaScript programmers; HTML5: 5th major revision of the core language of the World Wide Web. HTML5 is a core technology markup language of the Internet used for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web. As of October 2014 this is the final and complete fifth revision of the HTML standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The previous version, HTML 4, was standardised in 1997.

C# and HTML5 can be categorized as "Languages" tools.

"Cool syntax", "Great lambda support" and "Great generics support" are the key factors why developers consider C#; whereas "New doctype", "Local storage" and "Canvas" are the primary reasons why HTML5 is favored.

9GAG, Asana, and Disqus are some of the popular companies that use HTML5, whereas C# is used by Intuit, Stack Exchange, and OpenTable. HTML5 has a broader approval, being mentioned in 3166 company stacks & 3482 developers stacks; compared to C#, which is listed in 697 company stacks and 1163 developer stacks.

      Read more on how to extend the OutSystems UI with HTML here.

      At the user interface level, the platform provides a rich visual editor that allows web interfaces to be composed by dragging and dropping. Instead of purely writing HTML, developers use visual widgets. These widgets are wrapped and are easy to reuse just by dragging and dropping without everyone needing to understand how they are built.

      C# is the most productive production language - it exposes a lot of functional conveniences along with the robustness of strong typing. And they're finally embracing the open source community - a huge plus.

      #Language Features We use the basic syntax (for, foreach, if,while) and object oriented constructs (classes, very simple inheritance).

      We also use lambdas and block methods extensively, an intermediate level programming construct, but in a very formulaic and predictable way.

      Unity3d builds the app and scripts are written in C#. It receives first class support from the Unity3d developer and most plugins exist in C# in comparison to Javascript (the other supported scripting language)

      Used to create personal projects that call for a more organized approach to software architecture. Great stable 3rd party libraries in NuGet for tasks like creating web apps (ASP.NET Core) and IoC containers.

      The main Carbonmade backend / API is written in C# and is ready to run on the CLR. We currently host on Windows but are preparing to migrate to Linux when the CoreCLR stabilizes.

      I mostly just use it when I need to customize something from Bootstrap or *SemanticUI *and when I need to tweak tiny details or get around the limitations of Javascript.

      We exclusively use HTML5 instead of XHTML (or even older) HTML-versions. We like the new unity that HTML5 offers and try to keep our code according to the conventions.
