Get to know your instructor, his educational background, work experience and interests outside programming.
Difference between reference types and value types and how they are managed in the memory.
Demonstration of reference types and value types and what happens in the stack and heap memory when you copy variables.
Here, we'll explore conditional statements using a few examples.
Example 1: a simple program that displays a different message based on the time of the day.
Example 2: a program that sets the price for a product depending on whether the customer is a gold customer or not.
Example 3: a program that displays a different message based on the current season.
Here, we'll explore while loops using two examples:
Example 1: re-write of the program to display even numbers from 1 to 10, but this time using a while loop.
Example 2: a program that continuously asks the user to enter their name, and it'll echo the name. You'll learn how to implement infinite loops.
You'll learn how to use the Random class to generate random numbers and strings (like a random password).
You can get the solutions in the Supplementary Materials section of this lecture.
Here, you'll see me writing a program to summarise a block of text. This is useful in the home page of blogs where you need to show a summary of each post.
Overview of debugging tools in Visual Studio, breakpoints, running the application in the debug mode, continuing execution (step over, step into, step out) and inspecting values of variables.
