Create SharePoint List Item (using Server Object Model)

 using(SPSite site = new SPSite("http://SHAREPOINT_SITE_URL"))
{
	using(SPWeb web = site.RootWeb)
	{
		SPList list = web.Lists["LIST_NAME"];
		SPListItem listItem = list.Items.Add();
		listItem["Title"] = "this item is added programmatically via code";
		//Update other in similar way
