Knowing the suite of C languages developed by Microsoft is a guaranteed career booster. They’re powerful, in-demand, and can create almost any kind of application or software under the sun. However, they’re not exactly the most beginner friendly languages in the world. While they all have the same roots, they have distinct differences too. Thankfully C# (said ‘C Sharp’) is generally considered to be the least confusing of the family, and a level up from Java as far as skill is concerned.

C# is a great language, but it’s not perfect. With that in mind, this C# Programming Crash Course will start off by outlining what exactly C# is good at, and where its weaknesses lie. Following that we’ll take a look at the various platforms that utilize C#, which you’ll be using during the course to complete a wide variety of projects.
After that there’s nothing left to do but dive straight in. Step by step, section by section, you’ll build your knowledge of C# with practical projects along the way to put your developing skills into practice. A section each is dedicated to setting up your environment; data types and their uses; variables, expressions and operators; statements and flow control; organisation; classes and structs; inheritance; interfaces, and so much more.
All you need to get started is a basic understanding of programming and a familiarity with the concept of object-oriented programming (don’t worry if you don’t have any actual experience). Suitable for beginners and intermediates alike, by the end of this course you’ll have a solid understanding of C#, its strengths and weaknesses, what projects you can use it for, and you’ll be more than ready to start using it in the real world.
