Teaching Approach

No fluff, no ranting, no beating the air. I esteem your time. The course material is succinct, yet comprehensive. All the important concepts are covered. Particularly important topics are covered in-depth. For absolute beginners, I offer my help on Skype absolutely free, if requested.

Take this course, and you will be satisfied.

Build a solid foundation in software architecture applying Dependency Injection with IoC-Containers

In many of my courses I use techniques of Dependency Injection and each time students write me private messages saying that they don't what it is and thus they don't understand what's going on in the course I teach. This is very unfortunate from the learning perspectives.

Dependency Injection is the set of techniques that allow to supply dependencies to objects. Actually, if you have ever passed dependencies via constructors, then you applied the so-called constructor injection. Dependency Injection (DI) is simple and difficult at the same time. On one hand, DI is comprised of simple techniques and on the other hand, when we need to bring DI to the next level, we need to make things more complicated using the so-called DI or IoC (Inversion of Control) Containers. These are the frameworks which perform dependency injection automatically. You just need to set one up in the application root (an extremely important notion which you'll learn about in the course) and after that, it will resolve all the dependencies it knows about in the runtime.

If you still don't understand what am I talking about, just believe me, you absolutely need to know about Dependency Injection. This course will tremendously improve your understanding of how software architectures emerge. So, this course is "must watch" for anyone who still don't understand what is DI and IoC-Containers.

Content and Overview

This course is aimed at all kind of developers. It provides solid theoretical base reinforced by practical material.

I havent' finished writing this course yet. Please, do not leave bad reviews just because the course is not completed. I give all the people a chance to enroll to this course for free. I'll finish this course in the near future and I'll make it paid.

So, for now the course covers:

  • What is Dependency Inversion Principle
  • What is Inversion of Control
  • What is Dependency Injection
  • What are Dependencies and which dependencies we want to invert
  • The Architectural Implications of all these stuff
  • What is an IoC-Container
  • How to build a naive implementation of an IoC-Container
  • Demo of a big application with an IoC-Container (Castle Windsor) which is set up in the application root

In the near future, I'll add sections about concrete IoC-framework (I'll pick one) and its advanced features.

Who is the target audience?
  • Any C# developer who wants to learn about Dependency Injection and IoC-Frameworks

I'm thankful enough for that I love what I do.

I began my career as a postgraduate student participating in Microsoft ImagineCup contest.

I've been working with .NET platform since 2003. I've been professionally architecting and implementing software for nearly 7 years, primarily based on .NET platform. I'm passionate about building rich and powerful applications using modern technologies. I'm a certified specialist in Windows Applications and Service Communication Applications by Microsoft. I'm one of the coordinators of the MSK.NET User Group in Moscow.

What I can say is that software is my art.
