Adventures in C# Programming is a programming course like no other! It teaches the features of the C# language by guiding you step-by-step through the development of an exploring-style game.
You will learn to…
Write a retro-style adventure game like ‘Zork’ or ‘Colossal Cave’
Master object orientation by creating hierarchies of treasure objects
Create rooms and maps using .NET collections, arrays and Dictionaries
Create objects with overloaded and overridden methods
Serialize networks of data to save and restore games
Write modular code using classes, partial classes and subclasses
Program user interaction with a ‘natural language’ interface
Plus: encapsulation, inheritance, constructors, enums, properties, hidden methods and much more…
If you are a beginner programmer and already studying another C# course, this will give you hands-on experience of writing a big and complex project.
If you are an experienced programmer, this will give you a quick way into the twisty little corners of the C# language.
If you are a retro-games fanatic, learn how to write games just like the Infocom classics of the 1980s!
In this course you will learn to write C# your own retro text-adventure game using either the free Visual Studio Community Edition or a commercial edition of Microsoft Visual Studio. All the source code of sample projects is provided ready for you to download, run and modify.
The course instructor, Huw Collingbourne, is the author of the cult adventure game, The Golden Wombat Of Destiny. A long-established programming teacher online, he is also a well-known programming columnist in the UK and is the author of The Book Of Ruby.
Adventures in C# Programming is the ultimate fun way to learn the C# language. So, come on in and let’s begin the adventure!
