Course Description

This Advanced C# Programming Course with Dan Wahlin can only be found at Interface. The course provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to develop applications using .NET Framework technologies with C# and Visual Studio. Students start with an accelerated language review, followed by core features of the Foundation Class Libraries (FCL), CLR memory management, events and delegates, async tasks, and dependency injection techniques. The class then covers development topics such as working with different System.IO classes, parsing XML data, and creating Windows Services. Finally, the course covers serializing data, exchanging data using WCF services, security classes, and transaction management.

Comments about the Instructor
"Absolutely loved the class, instructor was very knowledgeable and able to answer all of my obscure questions satisfactorily. I really liked how the lab content didn't just hold your hand through the lesson, and instead gave you broad instructions on what you needed to be doing. This allowed me to use my newly learned skilled better than if it had been just handed to me"
