Our First Program


For our first program we will be printing “Hello World” to the console using Visual Studio and the C# programming language.

The Code

In this program you will write the following code:

class Program {

	static void Main(string[] args) {
		Console.Write("Hello World!");
  • Line 4 – This line calls upon the console to write the “Hello World!” string.
  • Line 5 – This line tells the console to wait for some user input and read the input. For our purposes, we use it to wait for a user input like [ENTER] to terminate the program.
