Programming in C# Jump Start
This course covers C#, Microsoft’s managed C-style language for the .Net Framework. In typical Jump Start fashion, every stop of this course will be example-driven. Microsoft Technical Evangelist Jerry Nixon
and the co-founder of Crank211, Daren May
, will craft sample after sample in real time to show simple and complex techniques you can take back to your workplace.
Because this course loosely follows the criteria for exam 70-483
, it is tailored for intermediary to seasoned developers looking to bulk up on C# or for a refresher on core concepts and features. As an accelerated one-day version of a five-day course
, Jerry and Daren can’t completely cover a language as rich as C#, but they will spark the interest of newbies and the confidence of professionals. Buckle up, will be fun and fast-paced!
