Intermediate C# Programming

Video description

In this follow-up to his popular Beginning C# Programming video, former Microsoft developer and C# expert Eric Lippert introduces you to intermediate-level C# concepts and practices through a series of helpful examples, exercises, and projects. This hands-on video course takes you into more complex examples of object-oriented programming, as well as types, file management, and event-driven programming—including the creation of a graphical user interface (GUI).

To provide you with a smooth transition from his earlier video, Eric reviews topics from the Beginning course, including values, variables, arrays, statements, loops, and writing specifications. Through the course of the Intermediate C# Programming video, you will:

  • Learn about generic collection types, such as lists and dictionaries, and enumerated types that represent things like days of the week
  • Dive into file management and learn how to use text files and embedded resources
  • Understand the types of problems OOP was designed to solve
  • Work with OOP classes, constructors, fields, methods, virtual methods, object properties, type checking, and inheritance
  • Explore the five SOLID principles of good OOP design, and check to see if your work adheres to them
  • Use event-driven programming with Windows Presentation Foundation to create a GUI
