C# Programming Fundamentals

Course code:MSAP0B

Duration: 5 Days / 40 Hours

C# is a modern object-oriented, general-purpose programming language, created and developed by Microsoft together with the .NET platform. This training course teaches developers the fundamental programming skills that are required for developers to create Windows applications using the C# language, through the principles of object-oriented programming (OOP). In this course Microsoft .NET framework is used as a means of developing C# application.


This course is intended for novice programmers who want to acquire fundamental skills for writing C# applications using Microsoft .NET framework.


Required: Understanding of programming concepts.

Desired: Prior knowledge in programming using C or C++.


After completing this course, students will be able to:
  • Understand usage of C# in developing applications.
  • Install software required to develop and run C# applications.
  • Usage of different data types.
  • Use decision statements, conditional branches and iterations.
  • Object oriented programming concepts.
  • Exception handling and defining user defined exception handlers.
  • What are collections and generics and how to implement them.
  • Serialization and file handling.
  • Differentiate variable scope and accessibility modifiers.
  • How to use namespaces.
  • Create and reference assemblies.
  • Basics of creating a Windows application.
  • CLR (common language runtime) and its relevance.
  • More concepts such as event handling, lambda expression, etc.
  • Create a small prototype application by applying the concepts learned in this course.
