This training course - 20483B teaches developers the programming skills that are required for developers to create Windows applications using the C# language. During their five days participants review the basics of C# program structure, language syntax, and implementation details, and then consolidate their knowledge throughout the week as they build an application that incorporates several features of the .NET Framework 4.5.
Cost: Price on application
Duration: 5 days
This course is not available as part of our public schedule but can be provided on a customised client specific basis.
