If you are like most people wanting to learn a programming language, you don’t have much spare time. What time you have is extremely valuable. What you need is a tutorial that will teach the essential C# programming skills quickly. Think of a word processing program like Microsoft word – it has lots of advanced features that most people never use. It’s the same with computer programming. A typical programming language has many parts that rarely get used, and a lot of what is taught in a typical computer tutorial or textbook never gets used in the real world by professional developers.
So why learn it all? It makes much more sense to understand just want you to need to know to become productive and then be able to apply for C# developer positions. If you really want to learn these other parts of the language, then you can later, and it’s highly likely you will pick it up faster anyway at that point because of the skills you have already learned. That’s what this tutorial is all about – giving you the skills you need quickly without any fluff or useless information.
The tutorial is aimed at complete beginners. No previous experience is necessary or assumed. If you are coming from another programming language like Java or C++, then you will also feel right at home here, and you can skip any of the introductory parts if you wish. But keep in mind there are subtle differences in C# compared to Java, so it’s probably a good idea to watch all videos anyway.
Along the way, we will work with a lot of C# example code. We’ll start with poorly written code, and go through it thoroughly to improve it and make it bug-free. This is an essential skill and you will learn that in this tutorial. The tutorial uses a combination of small snippets of code, and then larger real-world projects that you can run and edit and improve – you will learn how to think as a programmer and how to make the most out of the c# programming language.
