Programming in C#

This five-day instructor-led course provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to create Windows applications using the C# language. During their five days in the classroom students review the basics of C# program structure, language syntax and implementation details and then consolidate their knowledge throughout the week as they build an application that incorporates several features of the .NET Framework 4.5.

The course introduces many of the techniques and technologies employed by modern desktop and enterprise applications, including:

  • Building new data types
  • Handling events
  • Programming the user interface
  • Accessing a database
  • Using remote data
  • Performing operations asynchronously
  • Integrating with unmanaged code
  • Creating custom attributes
  • Encrypting and decrypting data

At the end of the course, students should leave the class with a solid knowledge of C# and how to use it to develop .NET Framework 4.5 applications.

This course uses Visual Studio 2012, running on Windows 8.

This course also helps candidates prepare for exam 70-483: Programming in C#.

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe the core syntax and features of C#
  • Create and call methods, catch and handle exceptions and describe the monitoring requirements of large-scale applications
  • Implement the basic structure and essential elements of a typical desktop application
  • Create classes, define and implement interfaces and create and use generic collections
  • Use inheritance to create a class hierarchy, extend a .NET Framework class and create generic classes and methods
  • Read and write data by using file input/output and streams and serialise and de-serialise data in different formats
  • Create and use an entity data model for accessing a database and use Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) to query and update data
  • Use the types in the System.Net namespace and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) Data Services to access and query remote data
  • Build a graphical user interface by using Windows Communication Foundation (WCF)
  • Improve the throughput and response time of applications by using tasks and asynchronous operations
  • Integrate unmanaged libraries and dynamic components into a C# application
  • Examine the metadata of types by using reflection, create and use custom attributes, generate code at runtime and manage assembly versions
  • Encrypt and decrypt data by using symmetric and asymmetric encryption

This course is intended for experienced Developers who already have programming experience in C, C++, JavaScript, Objective-C, Microsoft Visual Basic, or Java and understand the concepts of object-oriented programming.

This course is not designed for students who are new to programming; it is targeted at Professional Developers with at least one month of experience programming in an object-oriented environment.

Developers attending this course should already have gained some limited experience using C# to complete basic programming tasks. More specifically, students should have hands-on experience using C# that demonstrates their understanding of the following:

  • How to name, declare, initialise and assign values to variables within an application
  • How to use
    • Arithmetic operators to perform arithmetic calculations involving one or more variables
    • Relational operators to test the relationship between two variables or expressions
    • Logical operators to combine expressions that contain relational operators
  • How to create the code syntax for simple programming statements using C# language keywords and recognise syntax errors using the Visual Studio Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
  • How to create a simple branching structure using an IF statement
  • How to create a simple looping structure using a For statement to iterate through a data array
  • How to use the Visual Studio IDE to locate simple logic errors
  • How to create a Function that accepts arguments, parameters and returns a value of a specified type
  • How to design and build a simple User Interface (UI) using standard controls from the Visual Studio toolbox
  • How to connect to a SQL Server database and the basics of how to retrieve and store data
  • How to sort data in a loop
  • How to recognise the classes and methods used in a program

All our public scheduled training courses offer delegates the following facilities which are all included at no extra cost: 

  • Mini Continental Breakfast, with a choice of Croissants, Pastries, Cereals, Juices, and of course Tea and Coffee
  • Buffet Lunch
  • A Selection of Soft Beverages are available throughout the Training Day

Don't be Left Disappointed

The earlier you book the cheaper it is! That's our policy. The earlier you book a course online, the more likely the course is to run! We don't offer discounts for last minute bookings in fact quite the opposite. Book late and you'll end up paying the FULL price!!!

Late bookings mean we have to order extra manuals, which we have to pay express delivery charges for, additional food, that means our purchasing power is reduced, and reconfiguring rooms, which means extra time. Unfortunately all these unforeseen changes cost money which you end-up paying.

Just look how much you can save on our online listed prices the earlier you book!

  • 45 working days or more attracts an 8% reduction
  • Less than 45 working days = Full Price

Secure your place early and get a great reduction!

Early booking discounts apply to our publicly scheduled Microsoft Technical IT training courses held at our own premises. This discount will be applied to online booking(s) registrations only. Not to be used in conjunction with any other offer.
