VC#200—Visual C# for Java or C++ ProgrammersMinimize


This 5-day, lecture-and-lab course presents object-oriented programming with Visual C#. Key topics include the Visual Studio 2012 Express IDE (or Visual Studio 2012), classes, objects, encapsulation, interfaces, inheritance, polymorphism, abstract classes, creating class libraries, Language Integrated Query (LINQ), generic collections, event-driven programming, Windows Forms graphical user interfaces (GUIs), Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) GUI and graphics, exception handling, file processing and generics. The object-oriented concepts in this course are presented with a focus on the differences between C# and other programming languages. Students create Visual C# applications, understand C# object-oriented programming, learn to use various .NET Framework Class Library classes and participate in extensive laboratory assignments for hands on experience. After taking this course, students will be prepared to take VC#300—Advanced Visual C#

Optional Object-Oriented Design (OOD) with the Unified Modeling Language (UML) Case Study

An optional topic for our object-oriented programming classes is our case study on object-oriented design using the UML in which we design and fully implement the software for a simple automated teller machine (ATM). We introduce a subset of the UML 2.0, then guide the reader through an end-to-end first object-oriented design and implementation experience which ends with a walkthrough of the complete code.
