Introduction to C# Training

Course 419

  • Duration: 3 days
  • Labs: Yes
  • Language: English
  • 17 NASBA CPE Credits (live, in-class training only)
  • Level: Foundation

In this hands-on introduction to C# training course, you’ll gain a comprehensive introductory coverage of C# as an object-oriented programming language for application development. You will obtain practical experience using C# and learn how to leverage the .NET Framework Library to quickly produce production-level programs.

In this C# training course, you will gain the programming skills needed to create applications using the C# language. You will learn the basics of C# program structure, language syntax, and implementation details. Use of C# in all three tiers is discussed (user interface, business logic and data access) with focus on proper object-oriented coding.

Introduction to C# Instructor-Led Course Outline


This course is an introduction to C# but not an introduction to computer programming. Experience using a modern procedural language, such as Visual Basic, Pascal, Java, or C/C++ is needed. It is not a sufficient prerequisite if you have only used SQL and/or HTML. Attendees require an understanding of concepts such as data types, variables, declarations, conditionals, loops, expressions, functions, parameter passing, and procedural language flow.

For those without the pre-requisite background, Course 502, Introduction to .NET Programming Training is recommended.

Course FAQs

C# (pronounced C sharp) is a modern object-oriented and component-based programming language similar to C++ and Java. It is also a comprehensive data manipulation language with capabilities equivalent to SQL. Standardized by ECMA/ISO, C# is the core language of Microsoft's .NET strategy. It is provided with the Visual Studio development environment, including the free download of the express version. In addition, this language integrates access to the .NET component framework, an extensive class library and a portable execution engine called the CLI-Common Language Infrastructure.

C# is primarily used to develop desktop applications and, more recently, Windows applications. It is also a part of .NET, so it is used alongside languages like ASP in web development and apps.

Yes, C# is similar to Java. They are both typed statically, strongly, and manifestly. In addition, both C# and Java are object-oriented programming languages and curly brace languages, like C and C++.

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 object-oriented programming concepts. This course is not designed for students new to programming; it is targeted at professional developers with at least one month of experience programming in an object-oriented environment.
