Join Bruce Van Horn for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Visual Studio for Mac.
- [Instructor] This course comes with a set of exercise files containing all the code we'll be writing within our project. The structure is designed such that you can watch the videos out of order, or skip videos if you'd like, allowing you to focus on just those sections of the course you need. If you're new to C# and Visual Studio, I recommend watching all the way through, in order. If you have experience with Visual Studio for Windows, the first few chapters will be a good review for you. You'll probably already know a lot of the material, but I'll be presenting it from the Mac point of view, which is a little different than what you're used to.
I have my exercise files here, on the desktop. If you open them up, you'll see that there is a structure here that matches the structure of the course. If it happens that there isn't any code for a particular video, there won't be a folder for it. For example, there isn't a folder specific to the movie that we're watching right now, this one, right here, since we aren't yet working on our project. Inside the folder, you'll find the individual videos, and, then, inside of that, a begin and done. Now, on the first one, we begin from scratch, so there is no precondition here.
There's just a done folder. But, in all the subsequent folders, you'll find both, begin and done. The begin folder contains the state of the application at the beginning of the video, and the done folder contains the state of your code at the end of the video, essentially affording you a before and after view of what was done. If you want to skip around to different parts of the course, you can do so by simply opening the begin folder for any given video and work through what we've done. If, for some reason, the code you wrote doesn't perform as mine does, you can check your work against the contents of the done folder.
If you want to study the finished project, I've placed a copy at the top level of our folders, in a folder called Finished.
