Providing Technology Training and Mentoring For Modern Technology Adoption
This training course teaches developers the programming skills that are required for developers to create Windows applications using the C# language. During their five days in the classroom students review the basics of C# program structure, language syntax, and implementation details, and then consolidate their knowledge throughout the week as they build an application that incorporates several features of the .NET Framework 4.5.
The course introduces many of the techniques and technologies employed by modern desktop and enterprise applications, including:
At the end of the course, students should leave the class with a solid knowledge of C# and how to use it to develop .NET Framework 4.5 applications.
This course uses Visual Studio 2012, running on Windows 8.
After completing this course, students will be able to:
This course is not designed for students who are new to programming; it is targeted at professional developers with at least one month of experience programming in an object-oriented environment.
Developers attending this course should already have gained some limited experience using C# to complete basic programming tasks. More specifically, students should have hands-on experience using C# that demonstrates their understanding of the following:
This module reviews the core syntax and features of the C# programming language. It also provides an introduction to the Visual Studio 2012 debugger.
Lab : Developing the Class Enrolment Application
After completing this module, students will be able to:
This module explains how to create and call methods, catch and handle exceptions. This module also describes the monitoring requirements of large-scale applications.
Lab : Extending the Class Enrolment Application Functionality
This module describes how to implement the basic structure and essential elements of a typical desktop application, including using structures and enumerations, collections, and events.
Lab : Writing the Code for the Grades Prototype Application
This module explains how to create classes, define and implement interfaces, and create and use generic collections. This module also describes the differences between value types and reference types in C#.
Lab : Adding Data Validation and Type-safety to the Grades Application

Lab : Refactoring Common Functionality into the User Class
This module explains how to read and write data by using file input/output (I/O) and streams, and how to serialize and deserialize data in different formats.
Lab : Generating the Grades Report
This module explains how to create and use an entity data model for accessing a database, and how to use LINQ to query and update data.
Lab : Retrieving and Modifying Grade Data
This module explains how to use the types in the System.Net namespace, and WCF Data Services, to query and modify remote data.
Lab : Retrieving and Modifying Grade Data in the Cloud
This module explains how to build and style a graphical user interface by using XAML. This module also describes how to display data in a user interface by using data binding.
Lab : Customizing Student Photographs and Styling the Application
This module explains how to improve the throughput and response time of applications by using tasks and asynchronous operations.
Lab : Improving the Responsiveness and Performance of the Application
This module explains how to integrate unmanaged libraries and dynamic components into a C# application. This module also describes how to control the lifetime of unmanaged resources.
Lab : Upgrading the Grades Report
This module explains how to examine the metadata of types by using reflection, create and use custom attributes, generate managed code at runtime, and manage different versions of assemblies.
Lab : Specifying the Data to Include in the Grades Report
This module explains how to encrypt and decrypt data by using symmetric and asymmetric encryption.
