This course will introduce you to .NET, as well as teach you about creating your first app, debugging, errors, projects, syntax, variables, and data types.
We’ll start by reviewing what .NET is, why it exists, and talk about .NET architecture. We’ll move into tools for building .NET applications, discuss Microsoft Intermediate Language, and discuss the C# language.
Then, we’ll give an overview of Visual Studio and showcase how you can start building your first app. We’ll walk you through the steps on how to create a simple “Hello, World!” console application. You’ll also learn about debugging code and the Visual Studios tools that help detect and fix errors in your code.
Next, we move into projects and syntax. We’ll start by discussing the anatomy of a C# program using the “Hello, World!” sample application. You’ll also be familiarized with project folders and files, statements and expressions, language syntax, and preprocessing directives.
Lastly, explore how to work with data in the C# program using variables. Develop an understanding of data types including floating point data, characters, constants, and enums.
