Overview

There are many programming languages in use today.  Choosing which language to program in can be based on many factors such as learning curve, job specific requirements, platform specifics, or a plethora of other criteria.  In this course, you will be introduced to the C# language and the world of .NET programming.  

The C# programming language was created from the ground up to be an object-oriented programming language that offers ease of use, familiarity to C/C++ and Java developers, along with enhanced memory and resource management.  C# is prevalent on the Microsoft platform but is also being used to develop software that runs on Linux, Android, and iOS devices as well. 

Learning C# can position you for future programming opportunities, provide a solid foundation in object-oriented programming knowledge, and pave the way for learning other programming languages.   This course aims to teach you about the core aspects of the C# language.

This course is the first part of a three-part series designed to teach core C# language fundamentals.  In the second course of the series, you will learn object-oriented programming concepts and the third course offers instruction on data structures and algorithms with C#.   Once you complete the series, you will have a very good foundation of C# knowledge to expand on and learn more as you progress in your programming career or hobby.

by Dimitrios completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
A very theoretical introduction to C#. Only 2 pieces of code are asked and some questions through the whole course. The .NET is not approached at all.
