Gain comprehensive introductory coverage of C# as an object-oriented language for application development. With this training course, you will obtain practical experience using C# and learn how to leverage the .NET Framework Library to quickly produce production-level programmes. Use of C# in all three tiers is discussed (user interface, business logic and data access) with focus on proper object-oriented coding.

You Will Learn How To

  • Create, compile, debug, deploy and run C# programmes
  • Write and understand C# language constructs, syntax, and semantics
  • Develop applications using the object-oriented concepts of encapsulation, inheritance and polymorphism
  • Produce solid programmes using industry-recognised multilayer architectures

Important Course Information

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, Programming with .NET Introduction 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.
