Course Description

What is Microsoft Visual C#?

C# (pronounced "C sharp") is a programming language that is designed for building a variety of applications that run on the .NET Framework. C# is simple, powerful, type-safe, and object-oriented. The many innovations in C# enable rapid application development while retaining the expressiveness and elegance of C-style languages.

What is this course all about?

This course is designed for people with NO prior programming experience. You will learn how to write computer programs using Microsoft Visual C#. The topics in this course are handpicked to build a strong foundation for all new programmers.

What makes this course better than the others?

This course is better than others due to the design of the lectures. Complex topics are explained in a way that anyone can understand. The instructor began as a self-taught programmer, and knows where new programmers make mistakes and get confused. All the topics in this course have the instructor’s personal tips and tricks that helped him to succeed.

Where should I go after I complete this course?

This course provides a foundation that allows you to continue your programming education in almost any area. You can stick with desktop development and learn how to build rich and immersive applications using technologies like WPF. You can enter the world of mobile development to build Android, iOS, and Windows applications using Xamarin with C#. If game development is your area of interest, you can build both desktop and mobile games using Unity with C#. If you are tired of software development, web development is also an option using ASP.NET.

Can I take the experience from this course to learn new programming languages?

Instructor Biography

Jesse Dietrichson, Mobile Development Trainer at Xamarin

I am a software developer with much experience in both desktop and mobile application development. My primary programming languages are C#, Java, and C++. I currently work as a Mobile Development Trainer at Xamarin. I've worked on many projects including building business management, instant messaging / VoIP, and professional e-sport anti-cheating software. In mobile development, my most recent project was BounceBak, a social media application to share videos and pictures in a fun new way. My ultimate goals and future plans consist of creating my own software company, and continuing my education to obtain a Ph.D. I want to use my knowledge to eventually become a college professor and teach others the amazing content I have had the opportunity to learn. I feel that I have the ability to take topics that are very complex and explain them in a way that makes it easy for anyone to understand. Programming is my life, and teaching is my passion.
