C# language is a type of programming language that provides many different functions. Microsoft is the company that constructed this programming language. The purpose for its creation is due to its simplicity to use. It was also created with having engineering principles in mind. Also, Microsoft wanted a language that could be used in creating other software programs.

The creation of the C# language began in 1999 and continued into 2000 to finalize the product. Boxing is considered to be a procedure where a conversion takes place. Either the value type will be converted to a type object or an interface type will be changed from the value type. In C# Language, boxing is considered to be encapsulating a copy of a value type in an object.
