The C# Programming Language — A 5 day course

contact usEnquire about this course


Please Note: This course is now based on .NET 4.5/C# 5.0 and Visual Studio 2013

Microsoft's .NET Framework presents developers with unprecedented opportunities. From web applications to desktop and mobile platform applications - all can be built with equal ease, using substantially the same skill-set. But to make the most of this potential, developers must have a thorough grasp of core language skills and OO programming concepts.

This course concentrates on the C# programming language itself, to prepare delegates fully in readiness for exploring the .NET Framework. No Object-Orientated knowledge is assumed - the course provides a suitable OO primer. From basic procedural syntax to sophisticated object-oriented programming techniques, delegates will learn how to write .NET applications with code that is robust and maintainable.

The course is presented as a mixture of lectures, demos and hands-on exercises. Practical sessions follow all main topics, designed to reinforce the points covered. Additional information is provided in appendices to extend the learning experience after the course has been completed.


At the end of this course you will be able to:


Introduction to Object Orientation

OO and C Sharp

Introduction to .NET Visual Studio & C#

Syntax I

Syntax 2


Inheritance & Polymorphism


Delegates and Lambdas

Generic Delegates


Handling Exceptions
