C# Programming

Course Code - GN-141 Duration - 4 Days

This 4-day course covers the C# programming language and introduces Microsoft's .Net framework. It covers the C# language in context, exploiting the .Net framework and introducing both client and server programming techniques.


This course assumes knowledge of the basics of the C-like family of languages such as C, C++ or JavaScript.


If you do not already have this experience you should also attend our 1-day 'C# Primer for Non C/C++/Java Programmers' ('GN-142') course prior to this course.
