.NET Object–Oriented Programming using C# Short Courses
The .NET Object-Oriented Programming using C# short course teaches the fundamentals of Object-Oriented Programming using C# that will allow you to design and implement programmes on Microsoft's .NET platform. By the end of course, you will know how to create GUI programmes using Windows Forms as well as how to build and debug C# programs using the .NET class libraries and Visual Studio .NET.

Mark Robbins was for many years a Project Manager working for the government, the BBC and the NHS, where he lead large teams that designed and implemented many strategic national networking and messaging systems. He now works as a freelance academic researcher and author, journalist and IT consultant and teaches a wide range of computer science subjects at London Metropolitan University.
Some knowledge of procedural programming required - for example 20 hours tuition in VB or VB.NET or C/C++.
Students with no programming experience should first attend Java: Object-oriented programming with Java | Part 1. The syntactical similarities between C# and Java make an introductory java course more than adequate for a course of study in C#.
Applicants must be proficient in written and spoken English.
What will I learn?
- Introduction to C#. Why use C#?, Language comparison with C/C++, Java, VB.NET
- Overview of the .NET framework; using Visual Studio.NET
- C# fundamentals: Types, Variables, Constants, Expressions, Statements, Operators, Namespaces
- Classes and Objects: Defining Classes, Creating and Destroying Objects, Passing Parameters, Overloading, Encapsulation.
- Inheritance and Polymorphism: Specialization and Generalization, Inheritance, Polymorphism, Abstract Classes
- Interfaces: Implementation, Accessing Interface Methods, Overriding Interface Implementations
- Handling Exceptions: Throwing and Catching Exceptions, Exception Objects, Custom Exceptions, Rethrowing Exceptions
- Windows Programming: Building Windows Applications, Creating Simple Windows Forms and Windows Forms Applications, XML Documentation comments.
By the end of the course, you will be able to:
- Write object-oriented programs in C#
- Use Visual Studio .NET to create GUI Applications (Rapid Application Development)
- Use object-oriented methods to write more robust and more reusable applications
- Gain familiarity with the .NET framework and component-based programming methods.
Teaching and Assessment
Informal assessment will take place through group discussion, class room activities, and questions and answers sessions as guided by your tutor.
