Course Description

This course provides you the needed training for building new data types, handling events, accessing a database, using remote data, integrating with unmanaged code, as well as the knowledge and skills to perform operations asyncrhonously, creating custom attributes and more. It brings together all the features of programming in C# using Visual Studio for exam 70-483.

NOTE: This is NOT an introductory course to programming - and assumes some previous experience.

Some of the skills you will learn in this class are:

  • Describe the core syntax and features of C#
  • Implement the basic structure and essential elements of a typical desktop application
  • Encrypt and decrypt data by using symmetric and asymmetric encryption
  • Examine the metadata of types by using reflection, create and use custom attributes, generate code at runtime and manage assembly versions
  • Integrate unmanaged libraries and dynamic components into a C# application
  • Improve the throughput and response time of applications by using tasks and asynchronous operations
  • Build a graphical user interface by using XAML
  • Use the types in the System.Net namespace and WCF Data Services to access and query remote data
  • Create and use an entity data model for accessing a database and use LINQ to query and update data
  • Read and write data by using file input/output and streams and serialize/deserialize data in different formats
  • Use inheritance to create a class hierarchy, extend a .NET Framework class and create generic classes and methods
  • Create classes, define and implement interfaces and create and use generic collections
  • Create and call methods, catch/handle exceptions and describe the monitoring requirements of large applications
