About This Class

C# is one of the most powerful languages in the modern world of programming. It has one of the most powerful type system. There was a battle for sometime between Java and C# and now we can say for sure that C# won that battle from the language features point of view.

C# 6 is already released and fully available with Visual Studio 2015. C# 7 is under development still, but many announced features are already implemented and we can play with them in Visual Studio 2017 which is currently (when I'm writing this) itself under development (release candidate is available).

Teaching Approach

No fluff, no ranting, no beating the air. I esteem your time. The course material is succinct, yet comprehensive. All important concepts are covered. For absolute beginners, I offer my help on Skype absolutely free if requested. Don't forget that this course has English subtitles, so if you don't understand my accent, feel free to turn them on.

Take this course and you will be satisfied.

Keep pace with modern C#

If you go behind the modern C#, then this course is for you. This course will bring a whole picture of what's going on nowadays in C#. Modern C# is a powerful multiparadigmatic language. New versions of C# bring more and more functional features and you'll see it on practical examples.
