Course syllabus




Our courses are designed to help you learn programming skills through practice. Here are the practical projects you'll complete with the help of a mentor as part of this course:


1


The basics of C#

In this section we will learn how the IDE (the program we will be coding in) works and how to write programs using C#. You will then learn how to think like a programmer and about Pseudo Code so that you are in the right mindset for programming. This section also covers an introduction to variables and the different ways they can be used in programming. We end each section off with a consolidation task that ties this all together.

2


How to use conditional statements and loops.

This is where will learn how to make the program make actual decisions. We will learn how to make smarter and more complex programs. We will learn how to use if statements to make these decisions and use loops to execute our code for multiple occurrences.

3


How to find and fix errors and use text files in your programs

In this section we will learn about the different kinds of errors that you can experience in programming. We learn how to spot them and fix these errors. After this we will be tackling text files as a storage medium. We will learn how to read and write from them to make more complex programs.

4


Arrays and their Algorithms

We return back to our old friend Pseudo Code but this time we will be creating more complex algorithms using Pseudocode. We then learn what Arrays are and how to use them. We also learn about Array-specific algorithms like Sorting and Searching .

5


The Final Touches

We have covered all the essentials needed to create simple programs but now we will learn about more complex programming techniques like procedures and functions. We will then end off this section and the course with a Major Project that will combine all the techniques learnt thus far in a program you can be proud of and you can officially call yourself a "Programmer".

Why Take This Course?



This C# essentials course is made for people with no programming experience. C# is designed to be simple and easy to use. It is a high-level language, which means that you read it somewhat similar to an English sentence so that you can focus more of your energy on the actual programming.  C# was originally designed by Microsoft to be used for developing apps on the Microsoft platform. If you want to build apps for the Microsoft platform then this language is definitely for you.





1-on-1 mentor support for the duration of your course support, including live chat and code marking within 6 hours of assignment submission

Access to all course content , including hundreds of programming exercises and explanatory documents

Verified certificate on course completion, including post-course career support
A MicroDegree is a innovative new concept which goes beyond simply taking an online course. This certification is designed to get you the skills that employers believe are integral to get a job in software development. It focuses on learning by doing, and is typically comprised of 8 to 15 practical programming projects with hundreds of additional programming exercises and course content to support the skills needed to complete these projects.

All our MicroDegrees connect you with a 1:1 mentor, to which your practical programming projects are submitted for feedback. Your mentor works with you in real time to improve your code, solve programming exercises, and craft your learning path to match your intended career. Mentor support is available 24/7 online with face-to-face support offered in selected areas.





Prerequisites and Requirements


General

- Motivation and dedication to learn, and apply your mind to more complex tasks in programming.

- Proficiency in both written and spoken English

Technical Proficiencies

- Basic computer skills, such as sending emails, file navigation, saving files and opening files. 

- Note that this MicroDegree is suitable for beginner-level programmers, since it covers introductory content for each concept. 

Equipment and Technologies

- Access to a computer and a broadband internet connection*

- Ability to run a text editor such as Notepad++ or an IDE such as Visual Studio or CodeBlocks, though we will provide you with all installation files

- An email address where course content and other important course information can be delivered.

*The use of Dropbox means you’re not required to be always online while taking this MicroDegree. Even if you don’t have internet - perhaps due to some loadshedding - you can still access your Dropbox folder and continue to edit/update files. As soon as you have internet again, your Dropbox will sync with your trainer and he or she will see your changes. Dropbox and our own website is also available on everything from Blackberry to Apple tablets - so you will be able to learn while on the move.
