So, you want to learn C# and Visual Studio 2022, but are a bit intimidated? Don't be. Programming is within your grasp Programmers at any level have to fully understand, and more importantly, be able to code the core constructs. It is impossible to use complex programming concepts such as classes before understanding what methods and variables and their data types are. Once there is a foundation built on the basics, then all other topics can fall in line.

While it is a forgone conclusion that languages change with the introduction of new features, the core concepts do not. Even large enterprises do not always update to the latest versions of languages and frameworks; their "backbone" applications have been developed to work, regardless. More than ever, enterprises need developers who can master and apply the core programming concepts and then be "up-skilled" with newer language levels and features as they integrate into the company.

This book builds from the ground up.You will begin with an introduction to programming, learning the foundational concepts needed to become a C# programmer. You will then put to practice a wide range of programming concepts, including data types, selection, iteration, arrays, methods, classes and objects, serialization, file handling, and string handling. You will learn enough to develop applications that emulate commercial application code. Once you've got the foundational concepts, get ready to dive into common programming routines, including linear search, binary search, bubble sort and insertion sort, and use C# to code them. Code example annotations supplement the learning and are designed to enhance learning while also explaining why the code does what it does. This book:

  • Teaches core programming through well-explained and simple-to-follow instructions
  • Reinforces programming skills through the use of coding examples that extend user learnings
  • Explains theoretical programming concepts; applies them practically with code examples
  • Introduces the latest Microsoft C# Integrated Development Environment (Visual Studio 2022)
  • Enlists clear, precise, and easy-to-understand language to assist readers of all levels and experience
  • Uses a mix of "theory" and practical information that is designed to be friendly and engaging

Who This Book Is For

Beginners, those refreshing their C# skills, or those moving from another programming language. No skills or previous knowledge is required. Readers will need to download Visual Studio 2022 Community Edition as this is what the book code has been based on, but they could use other Integrated Development Environments.

Gerard Byrne is Senior Technical Trainer for a US-based Forbes 100 company. He works to up-skill and re-skill software engineers who develop business-critical software applications. He also helps refine the programming skills of "returners" to the workforce, and introduces new graduates to the application of software development within the commercial environment. Gerard's subject expertise has been developed over a multi-decade career as a teacher, lecturer, and technical trainer in a corporate technology environment. He has delivered a range of courses across computer languages and frameworks, and understands how to teach skills and impart knowledge to a range of learners. He has taught people in the use of legacy technologies such as COBOL and JCL and more "modern" technologies and frameworks such as C#, Java, Spring, Android, JavaScript, Node, HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, React, Python, and Test-Driven Development. Gerard has mastered how to teach difficult concepts in a simple way that makes learning accessible and enjoyable. The content of his notes, labs, and other materials follow the simple philosophy of keeping it simple, while making the instructions detailed. He is passionate about software development and believes we can all learn to write code if we are patient and understand the basic coding concepts.
