Microsoft's C# programming language first appeared in the early 2000s. Microsoft's design goals were to create a clean, concise programming language that was redesigned from the ground up based on the new programming paradigms that the Internet created. Over the past nine years, C# has become one of the most popular programming languages in the world. In this course, Mark Long introduces you to the basics of the C# language and gives you a foundation to continue to develop your skillset with C#. Work files are included.

Hello. I'd like to welcome you to the Virtual Training Company presentation of Introduction to Microsoft C# 2008 Programming. Let me start off introducing myself. My name is Mark Long. I'll be your instructor throughout the entire course. We're going to take quite a bit of time, quite a few hours as a matter of fact and we'll go through C# 2008 step by step, give you an introduction into the language, what's new, where the language came from, how to use it. We'll go from as simple as building your first program to tours of Visual Studio 2008 because that's the platform we're going to be programming in. Then we'll start to talk about everything from variable to methods and procedures and object-oriented programming in C# and all that stuff. So you're going to get a good, basic foundational introduction into C# 2008. Now, let me just start off by saying that if you're coming from say a VB background and you want to learn C# because you see it out there everywhere, this is going to be an excellent course for you. If you're coming from a non-Microsoft C type language, Java or something like that, fabulous course for you because we're going to take it apart and go piece by piece through here and show you some of the nuances of the C# language and the Visual Studio 2008 environment as well. Now, real quickly here, unless you've been in a cave for the past five or six years or so, you know that this Internet thing has gotten kind of big now and it is placing some serious demands on programmers and C# is Microsoft's answer to try to alleviate some of those challenges or help us deal with some of those challenges and so when in this introductory course we're going to lay a foundation for you to understand how to use C# to begin to build these object-oriented applications that can be used in these disconnected, service-oriented environments. OK? That sounds real tacky and real impressive I hope but the bottom line is you're going to get a good overall introduction into C# 2008 here. So what we'll start off with in the very next video is a course overview and depending on your level of expertise and how much you have already been programming on the Microsoft platform, you'll be able to tell from the course overview exactly where you want to start. You may want to skip a few of the first few videos and so forth. So I'll let you make that decision. Thanks for purchasing the product. I hope you get everything that you need. I will always include some contact information at the end of the course so that you can e-mail me and ask questions, make suggestions, complain about the accent, all that sort of stuff. So thanks again for joining me. I'm looking forward to getting started so let's go.
