Course description

The purpose of any general-purpose programming language is to provide a syntax that supports various features to manipulate data and interact with its environment. C# has rich support for this kind of syntax, and you'll begin to explore it in this course. You'll learn about the structure of C# code, then will start to learn about C# statements and expressions that let you perform complex operations with your code.


This is an entry level course. Some amount of programming experience will be helpful and speed up your learning but you can jump right into this course at any level.
