Hello, fellow developers! In this tutorial, we’re going to create a simple “Hello, World!” application using C#. If you’re new to C# programming, this is a great place to start.


Before we begin, make sure you have the following tools installed:

  1. Visual Studio: You can download the Community edition for free from the official Visual Studio website.
  2. .NET SDK: Make sure you have the .NET SDK installed. You can download it from the .NET website.

Creating a New C# Console Application

Let’s start by creating a new C# console application:

  1. Launch Visual Studio.
  2. Click on “File” -> “New” -> “Project…”.
  3. In the “Create a new project” window, search for “Console App (.NET)”.
  4. Choose the “Console App (.NET)” template and click “Next”.
  5. Give your project a name (e.g., HelloWorld) and choose a location.
  6. Click “Create” to create the project.

Writing the Code

Now that we have our project set up, let’s write some code. By default, Visual Studio creates a Program.cs file with a Main method. This method is the entry point of our application, where execution begins.

Replace the code in Program.cs with the following:

using System;

namespace HelloWorld
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Console.WriteLine("Hello, World!");

In this code:

  • We import the System namespace, which contains essential classes for input and output.
  • We define a Program class with a Main method, which is the entry point of our application.
  • Inside the Main method, we use Console.WriteLine to display “Hello, World!” to the console.

Running the Application

Now it’s time to run our “Hello, World!” application:

  1. Press Ctrl + F5 or click on the “Start Without Debugging” button in Visual Studio.
  2. You should see a console window with the “Hello, World!” message printed.

Congratulations! You’ve just created and run your first C# application. This is a simple example, but it forms the basis for more complex C# programs you’ll build in the future.


In this tutorial, we covered the basics of creating a “Hello, World!” application in C#. You learned how to set up a new console application, write the code, and run the program. This is just the beginning of your C# programming journey, and there’s a lot more to explore. Happy coding!
