Course Details


In this Modern C# and .NET Development training course, you’ll learn how to build and deploy Universal Windows Platform applications for desktop environments, as well as cutting-edge web development techniques with ASP.NET Core MVC. As you progress you’ll find helpful tips and tricks, as well as useful self-assessment material, exercises and activities to help benchmark your progress and reinforce what you’ve learned. Each component of the course has been carefully designed to build skills and capabilities that are in high commercial demand.

The release of .NET Core means that cross-platform development with C# is finally here. In this fast-paced practical course, you’ll work through a rapid introduction to C# followed up by an overview of .NET in the context of two real-world applications.

If you’re a pragmatic developer with a few years of experience working with another object-oriented programming language, this course will equip you with the skills you need to succeed with C# and .NET in the modern workplace.

The course will initially begin with familiarizing you to the different .NET technologies and Visual Studio 2017. Beginning from the basic concepts of declaring and working with variables, we move on to writing code that makes decisions, repeats a block of statements, converts between types, and handles errors.

You will also learn about .NET Core and its class library assemblies, and packages of types that are defined in .NET Standard that allow your applications to connect existing components together to perform common practical tasks. You will then learn to make your own types using object-oriented programming (OOP) and learn how to read and write to databases.

You will then see what can be achieved with Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) when defining the user interface for a graphical app, in particular, for Universal Windows Platform (UWP). Finally, we look at building web applications with a modern HTTP architecture on the server-side using Microsoft ASP.NET Core MVC.
