Introduction to C# Programming
You'll first develop your understanding of programming fundamentals: input/output operations, decision making, and looping. Then, we'll explore the many benefits of object oriented programming, with plenty of vivid, real-life examples. Then, you'll gain hands-on experience with sequential data files, and you'll be able to build a professional-looking and intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) application on your very own computer.
Because there is no better way to learn programming than hands-on practice, almost every lesson includes practical examples and assignments you can use to develop your knowledge of programming.
Learn to program the right way: by using a state-of-the-art language to build impressive applications on your schedule and on your very own computer.
Intermediate C# Programming
Build upon your current knowledge of programming logic by writing Graphical User Interface (GUI) applications in the C# programming language. This course will show you how to write professional looking applications with many of the common GUI controls, such as buttons, labels, text boxes, check boxes, and radio buttons. You'll also learn how to put menus and toolbars into your program to make them easier to use. And later in the course, you'll find out how to make your program interact with sequential files, random access files, and databases.
This six-week course will walk you through computer application design and implementation by giving you real examples that you can enter as you learn. Since practicing is the best way to learn programming, most lessons have more than one example, and each provides a programming problem you can solve to demonstrate your new knowledge.
