# notation. since when has it been called C hash? the sharp symbol is used at the start of the article, but gets switched to the octothorpe. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 23:20, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
It is extremely common to type C# instead of C♯ because it is easier to type. Even most of the official documentation uses a pound sign instead of a sharp. For example:  (This is even covered in the article under the name section.) Pathogen-David (talk) 15:17, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
At work we don't use the musical symbol when using/writing the language, but use the "#" symbol (shift+3 on keyboard). We pronounce the name "see-hash". But I've also heard "see-sharp" as well. I've never heard it called "see-octothorpe", but that's not to say it isn't. By the way, I believe the "pound sign" is something different (£ - England-currency?) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:18, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Why does "Sharp" have an upper case "S" - should it be lowercase, per MOS:CAPS? Presumable "Sharp" is not actually part of the official name ("C#"), so there's no need to capitalise it.
If it should be capitalised in the article title because it's a proper noun, then it probably ought to be capitalised everywhere throughout the article, in particular C_Sharp_(programming_language)#Name currently has a lower case "S" in
The article lists a date of "July 2015" for the C# 6 specification, but fails to give any reference. In fact, this Stack Overflow answer seems to suggest that no actual specification exists yet, even from Microsoft. --Wormbo 07:29, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
