Introduction to Programming with C# and .NET Core – Level 1
What is C#…
First, say C# like this: “See Sharp,” just like the music note. When it comes to computer programming language, C# is a great place for a newbie to start. Why? Because it’s simple to learn, well supported and maintained, and extremely versatile.
…and WHY should I take this C# course?
There are many options for learning to code these days, but very few of them are designed and delivered by instructors like Eric Wise who as a bootcamp founder spent over 5 years teaching beginners like you how to code like a professional. The proof is in the results: Wise’s techniques led to a > 90% job placement rate for his bootcamp students in multiple geographies and learning formats.
We will be the first to tell you, learning to code like a professional is NOT EASY. Our technique for learning is proven, but it requires effort and dedication for you the learner. However we will be with you every step of the way in our forums .
Here’s why learning C# is the KEY BUILDING BLOCK of your programming foundation:
There are many programming language options available to professionals, and they all have strengths and weaknesses. C# is a top-tier choice for getting started because:
Learning C# makes it much easier to understand other c-based programming languages. This means once you learn C# it’s much easier to learn other commonly used languages like Java, C++, PHP, Swift, and more.
With .NET Core and Visual Studio Code, you can now quickly and easily create cross-platform applications. So your C# learning can be done on Windows, Mac, or Linux.
C# is a first-class language that is commonly used in game development (Unity3D), desktop applications (wpf), mobile (xamarin), and web applications (ASP .NET).
C# is one of the top languages in-demand for jobs in the world.
C# is backed by Microsoft, so it has plenty of support and is constantly being evolved with additional features and libraries.
