C# is the language at the heart of many Windows applications, including Windows Phone and Windows Store apps. And if you have a programming background, you can get up and running with C# in as little as three hours using this course. Author Gerry O'Brien introduces C# and the Visual Studio IDE; the core language elements such as data types, variables, constants, functions, and loops; and object-oriented programming with classes and namespaces. Plus, learn how to handle exceptions with the try-catch-finally mechanism and manage memory resources. Then get a brief tour of two fully functional Windows Phone and Windows Store apps to see what the final results look like. There are also five challenge videos that allow you to test your C# prowess, and five matching videos where Gerry explains the correct solutions.
Hi, I'm Gerry O'Brien and welcome to Up and Running with C#. In this course I'll introduce you to the C# language, and the visual studio integrated development environment. Throughout the course we'll take a look at core C# language elements such as data types, variables, constants, and program flow with looping and decision structures. We'll also take a look at how to create functions in your C# application. Being a fully object-oriented programming language, C# fully supports class files, and name spaces.
And we'll also take a brief tour of the base class library. Exceptions happen in your program from time to time, so we'll introduce the try catch finally structured exception handling mechanism. Also, resource management in C#, through the use of the Garbage Collector, helps you manage memory resources used by your application. C# also includes support for generics, and many different types of collections. We'll take a look at those as well. And finally, we'll give you a brief tour of a Windows phone application written in C#, and a Windows store application written in C# as well.
So I hope you're excited. Let's get started with Up and Running with C#.
