Learning to Program in C# and .NET

This course in C# and .NET doesn’t require any prior knowledge in programming as I will guide you through every step you need to become productive in the C# language. My ambition with this course is to firmly ground all theory in code that you and I write in the editor together.


Building the Hangman game

As we’ll pick up new skills along the way, we will keep adding code to our hangman game – an application that we will write from start to finish throughout this course!


100% Code Compatibility

The code in this course is 100% compatible with the latest version of .NET. While the course was recorded using .NET Core, everything still applies as later versions of .NET is a continuation of .NET Core. Any version of Visual Studio (Community, Professional etc.) will work great, but if you’re already comfortable in VS Code, you can certainly keep using that.


100% Money-Back Guarantee

This course comes with a 30-day full money-back guarantee. Take the course, go through the lectures, do the exercises, and if you’re not happy, ask for a refund within 30 days. All your money back, no questions asked.
