C# C# Basics (Retired) Prepare and Plan Program Structure

which methods come first after Main()?

so the static Main() method is executed first but how does c# decide which methods are executed next after that?

C# itself never executes any method besides Main automatically, once it executes Main you (the coder) is the one responsible for calling other methods explicitly. If you don't call any methods within Main then C# will just exit the program once it reaches the end of the Main method.

ah ok, thanks for that

the method you invoke first in method will invoke first

No requirement for which method will come next. But you need to make sure that all methods you call in Main() will list in no particular order down below.
