I'm the author of "Beginning C# Hands-On-The Core Language" from Packt Publishing. Let's take a look at every this course has to offer. C#, which is pronounced as "see sharp", is a powerful programming language from Microsoft. This course is an introduction to this language using Visual Studio 2017, and the most current version of the language, which is C# 7.0. C# remains one of the most widely used programming languages in the market place. Whether you want to learn it so you can build your own app, or you need it for work, this course is your place to begin that process. Each lesson is an HD video, with the code attached under lesson resources. Each lesson also includes questions for you to consider as you watch. These questions are designed to help you think about C# and general programming concepts. This is a course for beginners, so if you are an intermediate or advanced student of C#, this course would not be the right choice for you. The explanations provided are very detailed, so please be sure watch the free preview videos before buying so that you can decide whether the style of presentation agrees with your learning style. This course is not theoretical, and is intended for those who want to get coding as quickly as possible.  Keep in mind that many of the concepts presented here apply equally well to other languages like Java.  Thank you for reading, and see you inside!
