Course Description

 

This course introduces Windows Presentation Foundation or WPF, the .NET technology from Microsoft for building rich Windows applications. WPF includes an XML-based markup language for defining program elements, Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML). WPF applications can be created using only code or a combination of code and XAML pages. This course covers the essentials of WPF, providing an orientation to this technology and a firm foundation for creating applications. The course is current to Visual Studio 2019 and the latest versions of.NET Core.

WPF is a complex technology that can have a steep learning curve. This course approaches the subject in a practical manner, introducing the student to the fundamentals of creating Windows applications using the features of WPF. It includes coverage of both traditional concepts such as controls and new concepts such as XAML, flexible layout, logical resources, dependency properties, routed events, and the loosely-coupled command architecture of WPF.

This course is designed to run on .NET Core, an open source and modular implementation of the .NET Framework. As of .NET Core 3.0, it is now very complete and represents the future direction of .NET software from Microsoft, although the classical .NET Framework will continue to be supported. The course also is designed for Windows 10. (Windows 7 is now out of support by Microsoft.) Since WPF uses Windows-specific features, it only supports UI programs running on Windows.

Pros
In Demand: 
C# along with Java is one of the top languages in demand for employers. 
 
.Net Library:
C# is integrated with the .Net Library thereby providing access to a vast archive of functionality and support. 
 
Team Friendly:
Multiple developers can easily work together on a project. 
 
Compiled Language:
The code that is stored on a public-facing server is in binary form. In other words, if your server gets hacked, the hacker doesn't automatically have access to your source code. 
 
Transferable:
C# roots are derived from C which means that the structure is transferable to other languages like Java, Objective C, PHP and C++. 
Cons

Steep Learning Curve:
For beginners, C# is not the easiest program to start with. 

Windows Application Exclusively:
Any .NET application needs a Windows platform to execute which means that companies using Linux servers would need Windows hosting to run a .Net application. 
 
Lack of Support for Older .NET:
Many enterprise organizations keep older operating systems because of the many problems that an upgrade can bring to the platform. Microsoft stops supporting older .NET frameworks after a few operating systems upgrades.

Complimentary Skills to have along with C# Programming

Since the .NET development ecosystem spans a wide array of capabilities and tools, it is difficult for .NET developers to know which .NET development skills and training to pursue in order to increase their marketability — and earning potential.  For that reason, learning supplemental languages such as Java, JavaScript, Python, C/C++, and others is expected in today’s competitive skill-set driven playing field.
