The C# programming language is a more advanced step on your journey but it is still one of the most popular and widely used programming languages in the world. This free course is designed to give you the knowledge you need to master this fundamental language. The course begins by guiding you around the features and functions of the Visual Express Integrated Development Environment (IDE). You will then be shown how C# can be used to create .NET applications, and you will learn how to write correct C# syntax for operators, expressions, and statements of duration.

The course then shows you how to declare and use while Iterations and Reading Data from a Text File, how to code with Strings and with DateTime, and how to use classes and methods in C# programming. You will then learn how to code in C# using namespaces, the different types of decision making statements, and how to declare enumerations using the enum keyword. The course then teaches you how to create and manage groups of related objects using collections.

Finally, 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. The course closes by showing you how to use the C# WPF application and which parameters the AddHandler statement takes. That’s a lot of knowledge for a course that takes less than 15 hours. So go on, get closer to a fantastic career and a pretty cool skill today!
