Current Version: 3.0
Microsoft .NET is an advance in programming technology that greatly
simplifies application development, both for traditional, proprietary
applications and for the emerging paradigm of Web-based services. .NET
is a complete restructuring of Microsofts entire system infrastructure
and represents a major learning challenge for programmers developing
applications on Microsoft platforms.
This two-day intensive course is designed for the experienced
programmer to help you quickly come up to speed on the C# language. It
is current to Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5, which introduces
important new features such as implicit typing, extension methods,
lambda expressions and Language-Integrated Query (LINQ). The new
features are covered in a new chapter.
This course concisely covers the essentials of programming using
Microsofts new C# programming language. It starts with a brief chapter,
.NET: What You Need to Know, which gets you up and running in the .NET
environment with a minimum of fuss. The next two chapters cover C#
language essentials and object-oriented programming in C#. The next
chapter discusses how C# relates to the .NET Framework. The following
chapter covers delegates and events. The course includes a succinct
introduction to creating GUI programs using Windows Forms. The course
concludes with a chapter covering the new features in C#. An appendix
provides a tutorial on Visual Studio 2008.
The course is practical, with many example programs and a progressively
developed case study. The goal is to quickly bring you up to speed in
writing C# programs. The student will receive a comprehensive set of
materials, including course notes and all the programming examples.
The student should be an experienced application
developer or architect. Some background in object-oriented programming
would be helpful.
On completion of this course, the student should be able to
Acquire a working knowledge of C# programming
Learn about important interactions between C# and the .NET
Learn how to implement simple GUI programs using Windows
Gain a working knowledge of implicit typing, object
initializers, anonymous types, extension methods, lambda expression,
LINQ, and other new features in C# 3.0.
