    About this Course

    The Advanced C# Programming course provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to develop applications using .NET Framework technologies with C# and Visual Studio. Students start with an accelerated language review, followed by core features of the Foundation Class Libraries (FCL), CLR memory management, events and delegates, async tasks, and dependency injection techniques. The class then covers development topics such as working with different System.IO classes, parsing XML data, and creating Windows Services. Finally, the course covers serializing data, exchanging data using WCF services, security classes, and transaction management.
