The goal of this course is to provide students with the knowledge and skills they need to develop C# applications for the Microsoft .NET Platform. The course focuses on C# program structure, language syntax, and implementation details.
C# was created to be the programming language best suited for writing enterprise applications for .NET. C# combines the high productivity of Microsoft Visual Basic with the raw power of C++. It is a simple, object-oriented, and type-safe programming language that is based on the C and C++ family of languages.
This course is intended for experienced developers who already have programming experience in C, C++, Visual Basic, or Java. These developers will be likely to develop enterprise business solutions.
At Course Completion
At the end of the course, students will be able to:
- List the major elements of the .NET Framework and explain how C# fits into the .NET Platform.
- Analyze the basic structure of a C# application and be able to document, debug, compile, and run a simple application.
- Create, name, and assign values to variables.
- Use common statements to implement flow control, looping, and exception handling.
- Create methods (functions and subroutines) that can return values and take parameters.
- Create, initialize, and use arrays.
- Explain the basic concepts and terminology of object-oriented programming.
- Use common objects and reference types.
- Create, initialize, and destroy objects in a C# application.
- Build new C# classes from existing classes.
- Create self-contained classes and frameworks in a C# application.
- Define operators, use delegates, and add event specifications.
- Implement properties and indexers.
- Use predefined and custom attributes.
