By the end of of this project you will create a guessing game application that pits the computer against the user. You will create variables, static methods, decision constructs, and loops in C# to create the game. Traditionally, C# and other Microsoft languages have been limited to the PC with Visual Studio as the IDE. Dot Net has been open-sourced and is now available on Linux. The Visual Studio Code IDE also has been fitted with a Language Extension plugin for C# as well for a pleasant developer experience on Linux. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
