Course Description

The course begins by providing a look at the different components of the .NET framework and discusses the basic building blocks of the C# language including variables, comments, conditionals and looping.  Next, classes and Object Oriented Programming (OOP) features found in C# are discussed so that students understand how to leverage concepts such as inheritance, abstraction, method overriding, overloading, generics, interfaces, and object hierarchies.  The course also shows several of the powerful language features available in C# including lambda expressions and Language Integrated Query (LINQ).  Other topics covered include data access technologies such as ADO.NET and Entity Framework.

By the end of the class students will understand all of the key components available in the C# language and learn how they can be used together to build applications. This class is created by Microsoft MVP Dan Wahlin.
