Welcome to this C# absolute beginners course (pronounced C Sharp). C# is designed to be a simple, modern, general-purpose, object-oriented programming language, borrowing key concepts from several other languages, most notably Java.
C# is an Object Oriented language and does not offer global variables or functions. Everything is wrapped in classes, even simple types like int and string, which inherits from the System.Object class.
C# could be compiled to machine code, but in real life, it's always used in combination with the .NET framework. Therefore, applications written in C#, requires the .NET framework to be installed on the computer running the application. While the .NET framework makes it possible to use a wide range of languages, C# is sometimes referred to as THE .NET language, perhaps because it was designed together with the framework hence it's popularity.
C# is an object-oriented language designed by Microsoft and used by systems engineers, desktop programmers, and mobile app developers the world over.
This course will guide you through C#'s basics, its core syntax, and the fundamentals of writing strong C# code. I will show you how to install Visual Studio, a great IDE for developing in C#, and then dive into the language itself. Along the way, we will cover topics such as:
- Declaring and initializing variables with a variety of data types
Data type Conversions and Truncating
Exploring Basic Arithmetic operators
Create your first C# web and Console App
Troubleshoot Compile errors
Controlling flow with conditional code
Creating custom classes
Creating a complete maths quiz that will generate random problems for the quiz taker to solve
If C# is your first step into programming or adding it your existing skillset, these training videos will help you understand the language and use it to build your own great software.
