A Beginner's Guide to C# and .NET
Learn to write your first program using the C# programming language
C# is a primary programming language and vital for taking your first steps in software development.
On this two-week course, you’ll learn the basics of this cornerstone of programming and discover the concepts and skills needed to begin your journey in computer programming.
Explore the fundamentals of an object-oriented programming language
C# is a versatile programming language used by many developers to create WebApps and games.
On this course, you’ll discover why C# continues to be so popular amongst developers and how knowledge of C# can act as a springboard when learning many other programming languages.
Set up a .NET development environment to run your C# code
With practical demonstrations throughout this course, you’ll discover how to bring your C# code to life in a .NET environment. You’ll be given a thorough overview of .NET before moving on to looking at C# coding in more depth.
With this foundational framework, you’ll begin to develop your knowledge of C# while understanding how your coding creates a workable program.
Investigate C# coding concepts, from variables in programming to understanding program flow
To create a working program, developers must understand the various concepts and functions within a programming language.
