C# vs Objective-C: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is Objective-C? The primary programming language you use when writing software for OS X and iOS. Objective-C is a superset of the C programming language and provides object-oriented capabilities and a dynamic runtime. Objective-C inherits the syntax, primitive types, and flow control statements of C and adds syntax for defining classes and methods. It also adds language-level support for object graph management and object literals while providing dynamic typing and binding, deferring many responsibilities until runtime.

C# and Objective-C belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.

"Cool syntax", "Great lambda support" and "Great generics support" are the key factors why developers consider C#; whereas "Ios", "Xcode" and "Backed by apple" are the primary reasons why Objective-C is favored.

According to the StackShare community, C# has a broader approval, being mentioned in 697 company stacks & 1163 developers stacks; compared to Objective-C, which is listed in 851 company stacks and 363 developer stacks.

It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
    Python
    Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.
    Java
    Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. There are lots of applications and websites that will not work unless you have Java installed, and more are created every day. Java is fast, secure, and reliable. From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!
