In this hands-on introduction to C# training course, you’ll gain a comprehensive introductory coverage of C# as an object-oriented programming language for application development. You will obtain practical experience using C# and learn how to leverage the .NET Framework Library to quickly produce production-level programs.

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.

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.

For those without the pre-requisite background, Introduction to .NET Programming Training is recommended. For those who already have fundamental knowledge of C# should take {Course:8476}.

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.

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.

Course FAQs

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.

C# is primarily used to develop desktop applications and, more recently, Windows applications. It is also a part of .NET so it is used alongside languages like ASP in web development and apps.

Yes, C# is similar to Java. They are both typed statically, strongly, and manifestly. Both C# and Java are object-oriented programming languages as well as curly brace languages, like C and C++.

This course is intended for experienced developers who already have programming experience in C, C++, JavaScript, Objective-C, Microsoft Visual Basic®, or Java and understand the concepts of object-oriented programming. This course is not designed for students who are new to programming; it is targeted at professional developers with at least one month of experience programming in an object-oriented environment.
