Hello World Example in C#

using System;  

// namespace declaration
namespace HelloWordInCsharp {
    // declaration class here
    public class FindAndSolve {
        // This is Main Method

  • Main() method must be inside a class definition.

This is just a simple program for introducing C# to a newbie. If you did not understand certain things in this article, that's okay (even I did not when I started). As we move on with this tutorial series, everything will start to make sense.
