Development in C#

The aim of this course is to introduce students to the development of object-oriented applications in C# with use of the Microsoft Windows .NET. Students get basic overview of the .NET framework and is closely acquainted with its most important parts. An integral part is an introduction to Visual Studio development environment as well as tools for the "rapid development" of complex applications, including the creation of documentation, localization in different languages, application testing and ClickOnce deployment. Students in the course well acquainted with more advanced programming concepts such as multi-threaded applications along with the themes of resource sharing, connecting to databases along with transaction processing, work with data in XML format and its definition through XSD and advanced programming techniques such as lambda expressions and anonymous programming . The course includes best practices in programming, introduction of application design approaches using MS Visual Studio, co-operation using format UML, methods of testing and debugging, and efficient troubleshooting.
