C# Instructor-Led Course Information

  • C# Training Course Description

    In this C# training course, you will gain the programming skills needed to create applications using the C# language. You will learn the basics of C# program structure, language syntax, and implementation details. Use of C# in all three tiers is discussed (user interface, business logic and data access) with focus on proper object-oriented coding.

  • Requirements

    This course is an introduction to C# but not an introduction to computer programming. Experience using a modern procedural language, such as Visual Basic, Pascal, Java, or C/C++ is needed. It is not a sufficient prerequisite if you have only used SQL and/or HTML. Attendees require understanding of concepts such as data types, variables, declarations, conditionals, loops, expressions, functions, parameter passing, and procedural language flow.

  • Alternative Courses

    For those without the pre-requisite background, Introduction to Programming using .Net is recommended. For those who already have fundamental knowledge of C# should take Programming in C# (20483).

  • Software

    This course uses the Visual Studio 2017 Professional, but is useful to those using an earlier versions. Although it also uses C# V6, careful annotation of version-specific features makes the course useful to those using earlier versions of the language.

  • After-Course Computing Sandbox

    You'll be given remote access to a preconfigured virtual machine for you to redo your hands-on exercises, develop/test new code, and experiment with the same software used in your course.

C# Training FAQs

  • What is C#?

    C# (pronounced C sharp) is a modern object-oriented and component-based programming language similar to C++ and Java. It is also a comprehensive data-manipulation language with capabilities equivalent to SQL. Standardised by ECMA/ISO, C# is the core language of Microsoft's .NET strategy. It is provided with the Visual Studio development environment including the free download of the express version. This language integrates access to the .NET component framework, an extensive class library and a portable execution engine called the CLI-Common Language Infrastructure.
