Bin is where the final compiled code is stored.
Obj is where the compiler stores intermediate files...

Yeah you would never normally use anything in the obj.

If you are making a project which compiles into something (an assembly or executable) then you would look in the Bin folder to find the output of your compilation.

This is normally split into two further folders Release and Debug depending on what mode you compiled under (although these settings can all be changed around in Visual Studio for advanced scenarios).

obj :-The obj folder is where the output of the compilation unit goes.
Bin: -The bin folder is what you specify for the project output, and contains the results of the compilation plus any references with "copy local" set to true.
