NICF - Programming in C#

What's In It For Me

  • Gain C# programming skills.
  • Learn to develop .NET Framework 4.5 applications.

Course Overview

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:

  • Building new data types.
  • Handling events.
  • Programming the user interface.
  • Accessing a database.
  • Using remote data.
  • Performing operations asynchronously.
  • Integrating with unmanaged code.
  • Creating custom attributes.
  • Encrypting and decrypting data.

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.

Who Should Attend

This course is intended for experienced developers who already have programming experience in C, C++, JavaScript, Objective-C, Microsoft Visual Basic, or Java and understand the concepts of object-oriented programming.

Course Duration

5 Days / 40 Hours

Accessing Remote Data

This module explains how to use the types in the System.Net namespace, and WCF Data Services, to query and modify remote data.

  • Accessing Data Across the Web
  • Accessing Data in the Cloud

Designing the User Interface for a Graphical Application

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.

  • Using XAML to Design a User Interface

Integrating with Unmanaged Code

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.

  • Creating and Using Dynamic Objects
  • Managing the Lifetime of Objects and Controlling Unmanaged Resources

Creating Reusable Types and Assemblies

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.

  • Examining Object Metadata
  • Creating and Using Custom Attributes
  • Generating Managed Code
  • Versioning, Signing and Deploying Assemblies

Encrypting and Decrypting Data

This module explains how to encrypt and decrypt data by using symmetric and asymmetric encryption.

  • Implementing Symmetric Encryption
