Software Development / Programming Languages

First Careful Steps Towards Success In C#

A Friendly Invitation To Real C#

Description

Dear Visitor,

C#, pronounced as C-sharp, is a powerful programming language from Microsoft. This course is only three hours long, with an average video length of about six minutes. The lessons are a combination of videos and presentations. Please be sure to look under "view resources" to find the code and the presentations. The code examples are simple and focus on only one or two concepts at a time to ensure you fully grasp the material presented. Since the concepts presented are of a fundamental nature, they apply to some extent also to languages like Java. The videos also including zooming, which means the key points are further emphasized to be sure you truly understand. C# has been and remains one of the most popular, and most powerful programming languages to learn. Many of the concepts presented in this course carry over very easily to other languages like Java. Let's get coding!

    6:12
    Writing less code by changing the using statement
    Main Idea: Write less code, but accomplish the same result by adding the word "static" to using statements http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson8staticusingstatementsincharp.html
    3:48
    Accessing project files
    Main Idea: There are many ways to get project files easily and quickly
    3:20
    Things change. How are changing quantities represented in C#
    Main Idea: Variables are used to represent changing or unknown quantities http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson10declaringsettingandprintingavariableincsharp.html
    6:27
    Carefully tracking variable values with the debugger
    Main Idea: A programmer should never feel uncertain about variable values as a program runs http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson11declaringprintingchangingvariablesincsharp.html
    5:40
    Describing objects in the world with different data types
    Main Idea: C# has different data types that can be used together to create accurate descriptions of objects http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson12describingobjectswithdifferentdatatypes.html
    6:16
    Useful key combinations to make working in Visual Studio easier
    Main Idea: Knowing the right key combos can make a programmer much more efficient​
    3:26
    Finding the definitions of things directly in Visual Studio
    Main Idea: Visual Studio has a huge database of information already built in http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson14exampleofsimpleerror.html
    3:06
    Producing useful output through simple calculations
    Main Idea: C# has the same arithmetic operators, like addition, that we learned to use in school for basic math http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson15ddoingbasicmathincsharp.html
    7:32
    Doing calculations inside WriteLine
    Main Idea: To save time creating variables, it's possible to embed calculations directly in WriteLine http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson16calculationsinwritelinecsharp.html
    3:05
  • Doing Slightly More Sophisticated C#
    Using the slash symbol for division
    Main Idea: Understanding the difference in results produced by the slash symbol http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson17slashsymboldivisionincsharp.html
    4:59
    Understanding the remainder operator
    Main Idea: Understanding the difference between results produced when using the / and % for division http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson18divisionusingslashandpercentcsharp.html
    5:43
    Creating a realistic program
    Main Idea: A truly useful program might have to evaluate complex mathematical expressions http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson19usingcsharptofindaverage.html
    6:09
    Using compound operators
    Main Idea: Replace long expressions with more compact ones to save typing and space http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson20usingcompoundoperatros.html
    5:58
    Understanding how to add 1 to a variable before and after
    Main Idea: C# has two very compact operators that allow us to grow a variable value http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson21prefixandpostfixoperatorscsharp.html
    5:07
    Representing quantities that never change
    Main Idea: Some things do not change, and C# allows us to represent these in code http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson22constansincsharp.html
    6:41
    Understanding the life cycle of variables
    Main Idea: Variables have a life cycle, just like everything else, and understanding this cycle leads to fewer errors http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson23variablescopeincsharp.html
    5:54
    Formatting output so it looks more professional
    Main Idea: It's possible to format output so it looks as best as possible to users http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson24formattingoutputcsharp.html
    7:25
    Using the var keyword to make coding easier
    Main Idea: The var keyword, in many cases, can recognize the data type of a variable automatically http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson25varkeywordcsharp.html
    7:43
  • Collecting And Operating On Input
    Creating a program that collect and produces string output
    Main Idea: Users expect to be able to interact with programs by entering input and receiving output http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson26processingstrings.html
    6:26
    Making a program that can collect and product numerical values
    Main Idea: Reading numerical input requires a conversion step http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson27numericalinputandoutput.html
    6:07
    Writing more compact code with method nesting
    Main Idea: Method nesting allows us to create less code http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson28methodnesting.html

    Processing input sequentially using method chaining
    Main Idea: Method chaining allows us to process input using compactly written code http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson29methodchaining.html
    4:31
    Understanding why conversions are necessary
    Main Idea: Data conversions allow one type of data to be converted to another type so it's easier to work with it. http://flowingcsharp.weebly.com/lesson30simpledatacasts.html
