This hands on C# programming course provides an introduction to programming using the C# language. Students are introduced to the application development cycle, structure of programs, and specific language syntax. The course also contains "Thinking Like a Programmer" sections that provide students insight on how to develop common algorithms. 


The course covers console and file I/O, string and character manipulation, managing data using collections and fundamental object-oriented programming concepts. Error handling techniques are also emphasized. The course also introduces how to access databases using ADO.NET and illustrates how to build user interfaces using Windows Forms. Comprehensive hands on exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce learning and develop real competency.


Students Will Learn:

  • Using Visual Studio to create C# applications 
  • Working with the .NET data types 
  • Creating variables with the proper scope and using operators to build complex expressions 
  • Using control structures such as if, while and for
