Microsoft .NET is an advance in programming technology that greatly simplifies application development, both for traditional, proprietary applications and for the emerging paradigm of Web-based services. .NET is a complete restructuring of Microsoft’s entire system infrastructure and represents a major learning challenge for programmers developing applications on Microsoft platforms. This two-day intensive course is designed for the experienced programmer to help you quickly come up to speed on the C# language. It is current to Visual Studio 2015. Important newer features such as dynamic data type, named and optional arguments, the use of variance in generic interfaces, and asynchronous programming keywords are covered. This course concisely covers the essentials of programming using Microsoft’s C# programming language. It starts with a brief discussion, “.NET: What You Need to Know,” which gets you up and running in the .NET environment with a minimum of fuss. Then you will cover C# language essentials and object-oriented programming in C# as well as how C# relates to the .NET Framework. You will learn about delegates and events and get a succinct introduction to creating GUI programs using Windows Forms. The course concludes by covering the newer features in C#. The course is practical, with many example programs and a progressively developed case study. The goal is to quickly bring you up to speed in writing C# programs. The student will receive a comprehensive set of materials, including course notes and all the programming examples.
