C# Developer Course Overview

The C# Developer course comprises sessions dealing with C# applications, variables and operators, decision and loop constructs, arrays, enums, methods, objects, classes, structs, delegates, events, object-oriented principles, exception handling, file IO, database access, LINQ and deployment.

Exercises and examples are used throughout the course to give practical hands-on experience with the techniques covered.

Course Objectives

This course aims to provide the delegate with the knowledge to be able to produce simple C# applications that exploit the core elements of the language including variables, expressions, selection and iteration, arrays, methods, classes and objects, structs, encapsulation, inheritance and polymorphism, exceptions, file IO, LINQ and deployment.

Who will the Course Benefit?

This course is aimed at anyone who wants to learn C# as a first language and developers who want to migrate to C# from another language, particularly those with little or no object-oriented knowledge.

Skills Gained

The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:

  • Writing, compiling, and executing simple C# applications
  • Understanding the relationship between C# and .NET
  • Declaring and initialising variables
  • Constructing expressions using relational, arithmetic and logical operators
  • Constructing decision and loop statements
  • Constructing and manipulating arrays and enums
  • Declaring and invoking methods using both parameters and return values
  • Creating classes, objects and structs
  • Encapsulating data
  • Implementing a hierarchical application design using inheritance
  • Exploiting polymorphism
  • Creating generic collections
  • Using delegates and events
  • Constructing simple lambda expressions
  • Throwing and catching exceptions
  • Reading and writing files
  • Using Language Integrated Query (LINQ)
  • Connecting to databases
  • Deploying applications

Requirements

Delegates attending this course should have some previous programming experience and be able to define general programming concepts including: compilation, execution, variables, arrays, sequence, selection, iteration, functions, objects, and classes. Moreover delegates should be able to navigate the filesystem (on the command line ideally), edit and save text files and browse the web. This knowledge can be obtained by attendance on the pre-requisite Introduction to Programming course.

Course Reviews

Good course, very well explained by Brian. He was very patient and took questions from the group and gave us good working examples.

Dion - Project Co-Ordinator - IT - December 2020


The trainer was amazing, patient, extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the course and explained things in a way that was really easy to understand. Thank you so much for this week, I have learned a lot and would definitely recommend this course to anyone else.

Emma - Digital Implementation Consultant - IT - December 2020


The trainer, was very knowledgeable and helpful. Everyone was able to spend time discussing individual's coding difficulties. If I was able to have further training I would be very happy to have the trainer present the course again. Documentation was very useful and all coding was supplied usefully via Google drive. In summary an excellent course to do and thoroughly enjoyable.

Shaun - Implementation Consultant - IT - December 2020


Absolutely great course, all questions answered exactly how I needed, all examples perfectly explain the concepts and give insight into the workings of the section we are discussing. Would recommend this course company and Brian to anyone.

Liam - Developer / Analyst


I found it useful to pick up some more in depth knowledge around the c# language.

Oliver - Government


Really useful course overall and has definitely given me a good C# foundation to build upon. A good balance of teaching vs exercise time and particularly enjoyed revisiting the Library Case Study to expand upon it and apply new skills as we learnt them…

Mathew - Front End Web Developer - Automotive
