Programming in C#

In this course, you will gain the programming skills needed to create Windows applications using the C# language. You will review the basics of C# program structure, language syntax, and implementation details. Using the knowledge and skills from training, you will build an application that incorporates several features of the .NET Framework 4.5.

This course uses Visual Studio 2012 running on Windows 8.
