Foundation in C#: Getting Started

Tim Corey built this curriculum to help newcomers get started in C# and Visual Studio. It is split into four different sections, and each has a quiz to ensure students are grasping important concepts. It is completely self-paced, and it takes a unique approach in trying to give students resources to continue their education indefinitely.

Course Description

Learning C# requires a good foundation. That sets you up for writing better code faster with less bugs. This first module gets you started into the overall course. Learn how to configure and use Visual Studio, learn the basic rules of C#, and get prepared to start building applications. You will also get an overview of the entire course (sold in modules).

Pros

Cons

    • Course offers a money back guarantee.
    • Course does not delve into challenging topics that would frighten beginners.
    • Tim Corey is a widely respected educator in many computer science subtopics.
    • Course does not push beyond introductory level ideas.
    • Course is pretty bare bones. Despite the ongoing learning resources, there is little to aid a student who has a hard time with any particular idea.

I have tried a few YouTube tutorials but personally nothing comes close to Tim Corey. He's great! His pace of learning and explanation is second to none.

Its all too easy to patch together a working application (as a non-developer), but without real knowledge of how it should be done! Some of the foundation stuff is very basic (as expected), but its easy to watch and theres some really good explanations there.

Tim Corey has a number of videos on C# programming and a couple that shows building an application from start to finish. I have always had a problem with videos but I like his!
