C#.NET 1: Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming Using C#

In this course, you will learn your way around both Visual Studio and the .NET Framework.  You will work with a variety of form controls and base class libraries to create simple Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs).  The course covers variables, relational operators, decision statement classes and methods, and additional topics that will provide a foundation on which you can build your knowledge of object-oriented design concepts and the C# programming language.

Upon completion of this C# training course, you will be able to:

  • Code solutions and compile C# projects within the .NET framework.
  • Create and manipulate GUI components in C#.
  • Construct classes, methods, and accessors, and instantiate objects.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of object-oriented concepts such as encapsulation and polymorphism.
  • Design user experience and functional requirements for a full-fledged C#.NET project.

From beginning to end, you will learn by doing Visual Studio and .NET Framework-based projects and submitting them for instructor feedback.  These projects, as well as the final project, will add to your portfolio and contribute to certificate completion. Besides a browser and Internet connection, all software is provided online by the O’Reilly School of Technology.

This course counts toward the C#.NET Programming Certificate.

Prerequisites:  Introduction to Object Oriented Programming, JavaScript: An Introduction or equivalent skills.  This course is meant for the beginning or intermediate programmer.
