  • Learn the basics of programming in C# using the Visual Studio Express from Microsoft by studying the course Diploma in C# Programming. 

    The course begins by showing you how to download and install Visual Studio Express, which is a free software package available from Microsoft, in a step-by-step manner. You will then be guided around and shown the features and functions of the Visual Express Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The .NET Framework is the software framework developed by Microsoft that runs primarily on Microsoft Windows and you will be shown how C# can be used to create .NET applications.

    You will learn how to write correct C# syntax for operators, expressions, and statements of duration. You will also learn how to declare and use for iterations, as well as create arrays of values and create and call simple overload helper methods. The course then shows you how to declare and use while Iterations and Reading Data from a Text File. You will also learn how to code with Strings and with DateTime.

    You will learn how to use classes and methods in C# programming and how to declare a new instance of a class. You will also learn how to work with classes and inheritances in the .NET Framework class library. You will learn about constructors which have the same name as the class, and usually initialize the data members of the new object. You will learn about constructor overloading, the name given to constructors with different sets of parameters. You will learn about inheritance which is the ability to create a class from another class, the "parent" class, extending the functionality and state of the parent in the derived or "child" class. You will learn about the FileStream class, which supports both synchronous and asynchronous read and write operations. You will learn how to code in C# using namespaces which are C# program elements designed to help you organize your programs.

    You will learn about the different types of decision making statements such as the switch decision statement, if...else statement, and the if...else...if statement. In C# if you have a number of constants that are logically related to each other, then you can group together these constants in what are called enumerations. You will learn how to declare enumerations using the enum keyword. You will learn about using the try-catch statement when handling exceptions. You will learn how to create and manage groups of related objects using collections. You will learn about Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) and how it offers a consistent model for working with data across various kinds of data sources and formats. You will learn how to use the C# WPF application and which parameters the AddHandler statement takes.

    This Diploma course on C# Programming will be of great interest to all learners who would like to learn more about C# programming and how to use Visual Studio Express for programming software applications.
