Course Description

 
.NET Framework Using C# This four-day course is designed to provide a sound introduction to the .NET Framework for programmers who already know the C# language and the fundamentals of Windows Forms. It is current to .NET 4.6 and Visual Studio 2015, which now includes support for cross-platform development. The course focuses on core portions of the .NET Framework that are common across many application areas. Starting with an introduction to the architecture and key concepts of .NET., then discusses class libraries, assemblies, versioning, configuration, and deployment, which constitute a major advance in the simplicity and robustness of deploying Windows applications, ending the notorious -DLL hell.- Followed by discussions on important topics in the .NET programming model, including metadata, reflection, I/O, and serialization, memory management, asynchronous programming and application domains, threading, which includes an introduction to the Task Parallel Library (TPL).
