What is C#…
First, say C# like this: “See Sharp,” just like the music note. When it comes to computer programming language, C# is the best place for a newbie to start. Why? Because it’s simple to learn, well supported and maintained, and extremely versatile.
…and WHY should I take this C# course?
You’re a newcomer to coding? Your job is to LEARN THE CODE and that’s what this online C# course is all about. You’ll learn C#’s programming language, its syntax, with clear instruction and detailed videos. And you’ll write code. Lots of code.
Learning the code is Job 1. That’s what this course will teach you. Later comes problem solving, and learning how to create and organize large-scale solutions that are reusable, testable, and of high quality. But all that’s later.
Want to program? You MUST learn to write code
The BEST way to become a highly proficient C# programmer is to write code — LOTS of code. And you’ll be writing, writing, and writing in this highly focused course. You’ll get limber with nearly 100 warm up exercises you’ll use to practice and increase your fluency in C# language fundamentals.
You’ll receive and own over 48 lectures, eight quizzes, and more than six and a half hours of focused content — complete instruction on how to understand the solid foundation of C# Programming language.
Get ready to dive right into the code because you’ll actually create real, live applications that run in the console. You’ll get in there and declare and manipulate variables. You’ll write “Flow of Control” statements we call “Loops and Conditions.”
On your path to becoming an expert programmer, will learn how to create methods for code reuse and readability. Cool! And you’ll keep it all nice an neat by learning to organize your code into related classes.
You’re about to learn the secrets of today’s most powerful and popular programming language
You’ll start your C# course with a full overview of C# — our “sales pitch” on why it’s today’s must-learn programming language. Then we’ll show you how to download and install Visual Studio Express.
You’ll start your first code-writing lesson by writing the classic “Hello World” to your screen. Pay attention because there’s a Quiz afterward! Having written it, you’ll then deconstruct your Hello World application so you can see the bits and pieces that form a C# application.
You’ll learn new lingo starting with “Types.” In C#, everything is a type — they define all interactions between objects, variables, and parameters. (Lost in the lingo already? Don’t worry about it. C# language is easy to learn and it’s all in our C# online course.)
You’ll watch a detailed, seven-minute demo videos so you can learn about reading data from the console. And then a 15-minute video demo demystifying “Comments and Format Settings.”
You’ll continue watching, learning, and being grilled on your knowledge. We’ll explain and demonstrate “Expressions and Operators.” And quiz you on them, too. Learn about “If Statements.” Discover “Live Coding” in our chapters, “Flip a Coin 1 and 2.” Then “Lucky Sevens.” Check it out!
You’ll learn about “For Loops,” “Conditional Statements & Loops, Classes & Methods and much, much, much, much more…you’ll learn all about C# in ten sections and 56 chapters in all.
