This 4-day instructor-led course is aimed at developers who are already experienced with either the Java or C language and are looking to cross-skill to C#6/Visual Studio 2015
In addition to the language elements themselves, the course also covers some of the common technologies within the .NET4 Framework that will enable delegates to make to use the language effectively.
The course is presented as a mixture of lectures and hands-on exercises. Practical sessions follow all the main topics, designed to reinforce the points covered.
Delegates will be experienced C or Java developers and therefore will have a strong existing knowledge of object oriented programming concepts.
Introduction to the Microsoft world
The .NET Framework
The Common Language Runtime
Patterns subsumed into the language
Visual Studio 2015
Differences between Java/C and C#
Differences C to Java
The same in Java and C#
The bulk of the differences between Java and C# are minor. All of these are handled as short 'bullet point' lab preceded by demos of some of the differences and their significance. Greater time is given to the more significant differences.
Collections and Generics
The generic collections List and Dictionary
Delegates, Lambdas and LINQ
Full explanation of what delegates, lambdas and LINQ are
The various C# language features that act as LINQ enablers;
LINQ to Objects
Grouping; Joins; LINQ to XML
This is the Hibernate of the .NET world ie the way that .NET typically connects to relational databases
Introduction to both Nunit and MSTest
Mock objects using Moq
Introduction to the .NET4 Task Parallel Library
Blocking and non-Blocking Collections
C# has the above Task mechanism built into the language to enable the code structure of asynchronous code to look almost identical to the synchronous equivalent
The topics listed here are typically only of significance for those doing WebForms or WinForms programming
If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
