About the Course

In this 1-hour long project-based course, we will introduce fundamental programming concepts and terminology to students who have never programmed before. You will be exposed to the basic coding structures such as assignment statements, variables, constants, decision making statements, loops, and arrays in C# Console applications. By successfully completing the hands-on practices assigned, you will understand why and when to apply these basic programming concepts and be better prepared for taking other computer programming courses in any language....

This course helps in providing gist of C# basics and exploring VS Studio's IDE. Let's explore better by knowing different things :)

Definitely the course to take before embarking on a full-blown C# programming course - for beginners.

very innovative and good approach to build simple beginner friendly programming project .if instructor typed the whole program it will be more effective for new comers

While this guided project is advertised to beginners it is not set up that way. The focus of this project is more directed towards the flow of the code versus the code itself. This is not a good course for someone who knows a little bit of code or code in another language and is looking to learn C#. This is much more geared towards someone just starting out and needing to learn how if/then/else loops and other basic procedural things.

The instructor did have students copy and paste code he had previously written. He explained what is did in the grand scheme of things but not why it was written the way it was, which is what I had hoped to learn.

Reasonable short intro to C# programming. This introduction was sped up by having most of the coding done by copy and pasting code from a working solution into Visual Studio, which limits the usefulness of this coding exercise but increased how many concepts could be covered in the hour. Also, the user interface was not fun to work with. The online visual studio was prone to freezing so I used my desktop version. However, any clicks away from the learning window paused the video making this a slow process.

Not a complete beginner material. I had coding experience in other C language variants, so when the instructor skipped explaining on much of what would have been completely new to beginners, I was surprised. Not a great teaching style but good, solid codes for beginners to learn about structure and basic logic.

good for some one who has no idea about programming using visual studio with c#. It would be great if they add GUI to it.

Too much copy and pasting - I would have like to have had concepts such as namespace, doubles, etc explained whilst constructing the calculator.

Does a good job in building a basic calculator. Does not delve much into details. Some ideas presented in the codes are seriously flawed when describing the program flow.

Not enough explanation...too much just copying and pasting without actually learning the language itself. It should be explained first before being used.

Visual Studio Emulator fehlerhaft - ";" wird von der Tastatur nicht angenommen - Keine Möglichkeit einen Code im emulator zu schreiben
