Overview

  • Course Overview
  • This five- day training course teaches developers the programming skills that are required to create applications using the C# language. During their five days in the classroom, students review the basics of C# program structure, language syntax, and implementation details, and then consolidate their knowledge throughout the week as they build an application that incorporates several features of .NET. The course aims to follow the spirit of the Microsoft Official Curriculum course 20483, while bringing it completely up-to-date with the latest features of C#, .NET 6.0 and Visual Studio 2022.
  • Audience
  • 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.

Prerequisites

  • Developers attending this course should already have gained some limited experience using C# to complete basic programming tasks. More specifically, students should have hands-on experience using C# that demonstrates their understanding of the following:

    How to name, declare, initialize and assign values to variables within an application.
    How to use: arithmetic operators to perform arithmetic calculations involving one or more variables; relational operators to test the relationship between two variables or expressions; logical operators to combine expressions that contain relational operators.
    How to create the code syntax for simple programming statements using C# language keywords and recognize syntax errors using the Visual Studio IDE
    How to create a simple branching structure using an IF statement., looping structure using a For statement to iterate through a data array.
    How to use the Visual Studio IDE to locate simple logic errors.

Course Details

  • After completing this course, students will be able to:
  • Describe the core syntax and features of C#.
  • Create and call methods, catch and handle exceptions, and describe the monitoring requirements of large-scale applications.
  • Implement the basic structure and essential elements of a typical desktop application.
