55339A is the equivalent of the retired MOC Course 20483CC - Programming in C#. This five- day training course teaches developers the programming skills that are required to create applications using the C# language. During their five days in the classroom, students review the basics of C# program structure, language syntax, and implementation details, and then consolidate their knowledge throughout the week as they build an application that incorporates several features of .NET. The course aims to follow the spirit of the Microsoft Official Curriculum course 20483, while bringing it completely up-to-date with the latest features of C#, .NET 6.0 and Visual Studio 2022.

  • Explain how to use Visual Studio to create and run an application.
  • Describe the features and syntax of the C# programming language.
  • Define the monitoring needs of large-scale applications
  • Create and call methods, capture and manage exceptions.
  • Understand the .NET development platform and libraries.
  • Understand the .NET framework classes.
  • Create well-structured and easily-maintainable C# code.
  • Define and implement interfaces.
  • Create a class hierarchy using inheritance.

  • Acquire a working knowledge of how to build a graphical UI using XAML.
  • Use file I/O and streams, and serialize/deserialize data in various formats.
  • Understand web communications and protocols.
  • Create an entity data model for database access.
  • Use Language-Integrated Query (LINQ).
  • Use asynchronous operations to create performant applications.
  • Add dynamic components and unmanaged libraries to a C# program.

Who Can Benefit

This course is intended for experienced developers who already have programming experience in C, C++, JavaScript, Objective-C, Microsoft Visual Basic, or Java, and understand the concepts of object-oriented programming. This course is not designed for students who are new to programming; it is targeted at professional developers with at least one month of experience programming in an object-oriented environment. Those new to programming should consider course 55337AC - Introduction to Programming. The 55337AC course uses C# as the language to facilitate an introduction to programming generally, whereas this course focuses on the C# language itself, making it an excellent follow-on course. If you want to learn to take full advantage of the C# language, then this is the course for you.

Prerequisites

  • For students who dont have prior experience of programming in a high-level language, it is recommended that they take the 55337AC course, which uses C# as the language to facilitate an introduction to programming.
  • Course 55339AC focuses on the C# language itself, making it an excellent follow-on course.

Course Details

Outline


Module 1: C# Syntax
Microsoft .NET 6 provides a comprehensive development platform that you can use to build, deploy, and manage applications and services. By using .NET, you can create visually compelling applications, enable seamless communication across technology boundaries, and provide support for a wide range of business processes.

In this module, you'll learn about some of the core features provided by.NET and Microsoft Visual Studio. Youll also learn about some of the core C# constructs that enable you to start developing .NET applications.

Module 2: C# Language Concepts
Applications often consist of logical units of functionality that perform specific functions, such as providing access to data or triggering some logical processing. C# is an object-orientated language and uses the concept of methods to encapsulate logical units of functionality. Although a good practice is to have methods that do just one thing, they can be as simple or as complex as you like. It is also important to consider what happens to the state of your application when an exception occurs in a method.
