Learn C# for Beginners Crash Course
Obtain C# Programming Language Skills With This C# Tutorial. Acquire Essentials Skills To Get a C# Developer Job Today.
If you are like most people wanting to learn a programming language, you don’t have much spare time. What time you have is extremely valuable. What you need is a course that will teach the essential C# programming skills quickly.
Think of a word processing program like Microsoft word – it has lots of advanced features that most people never use. It’s the same with computer programming. A typical programming language has many parts that rarely get used, and a lot of what is taught in a typical computer course or textbook never gets used in the real world by professional developers.
So why learn it all? It makes much more sense to learn just want you need to learn to become productive, and be then able to apply for C# developer positions. If you really want to learn these other parts of the language, then you can later, and its highly likely you will pick it up faster anyway at that point because of the skills you have already learned.
That’s what this course is all about – giving you the skills you need quickly without any fluff or useless information.
The course is aimed at complete beginners. No previous experience is necessary or assumed. If you are coming from another programming language like Java or C++, then you will also feel right at home here, and you can skip any of the introductory parts if you wish. But keep in mind there are subtle differences in C# compared to Java, so it’s probably a good idea to watch all videos anyway.
Here is a review from a student in this course.
“Just like any other course thought by Tim Buchalka, the course is excellent!!!!” – Jean Uwumuremyi
Here is what a student said about another of the instructors courses.
“I am a newbie to programming but have an interest in learning and finding ways to perhaps apply data analysis in my current or perhaps future jobs. This course on Python gave me an awesome comprehensive base as a new programmer and I really enjoyed Tim’s manner and the pace of the lectures!” – Michael Jareo
What will you learn in the course?
You will learn about many important C# code concepts including.
Creating a C# basic program
All about the C# compiler
Answers to questions like What is a C# class, What is a C# property, how do you use a C# namespace and so on.
But importantly how to debug and refactor C# code, and how to get the best out of Microsoft’s Visual Studio which is used in the course – We include tips and installation videos covering both Windows and Mac. And Visual Studio Code is also discussed for linux users who do not have native version of Visual Studio available to them.
Check out the curriculum on this page for a list of what is covered in the course.
Along the way we will work with a lot of C# example code. We’ll start with badly written code, and go through it thoroughly to improve it and make it bug free. This is an essential skill and you will learn that in this course.
The course uses a combination of small snippets of code, and then larger real world projects that you can run and edit and improve – you will learn how to think as a programmer and how to make the most out of the c# programming language.
What about course updates?
The course will get regular updates – We already have a document in the course that outlines what content is still to be added – We envisage it will be around sixteen hours once done.
The instructors have built up a good history of updating their courses in the past on Udemy and this will continue in this course.
What about the instructors?
Your instructors Tim and Jean-Paul have a combined 70 years of professional software development experience between them. They have worked for prestigious companies such as IBM, Mitsubishi, Fujitsu and Saab. Their professional experience means you are learning from true experts with real commercial programming experience.
Their other courses on Udemy have attracted hundreds of thousands of students and tens of thousands of reviews – they have an enviable record of creating courses that teach people what they need to learn to become productive and successful programmers. Many of their students have applied for and obtained programming jobs after going through their training.
Here is another comment from a student in another of the instructors courses.
“I messaged once a few months ago when finishing you Java course on how it helped me also as a refresher on my c# skills. Long story short, the owner of the Software Development company I work for now, after seeing my skills by accident, he asked me if I was looking for a job, I said not really but I would be interested in seeing what all was about, he asked for my resume, set up an interview and he made me a quick test to see how far I was skill-wise and I finished the test with flying colors. He offered me a long term full time job right on the spot with a starting salary superior to what I was doing ($70,000 USD/yr to start and $75,000 USD/yr after six months if everything goes fine), really nice hours and benefits. So now I am coding with a real purpose and what I was doing for free in my free time, now is earning me a living, I’ve been working there for a month now and it has been great for them and for me. ” – Miguel Lara
What about if you have questions?
As if this course wasn’t complete enough, Tim and Jean-Paul offer full support, answering any questions you have 7 days a week (whereas many instructors answer just once per week, or not at all).
This means you’ll never find yourself stuck on one lesson for days on end. With their hand-holding guidance, you’ll progress smoothly through this course without any major roadblocks.
Student Quote: “In the course there are several challenges, and when in need of a hint; questions asked are replied swift and elaborate. Feels like one-on-one support. It exceeds my expectations!” – Arjo Tibben
There’s no risk either!
This course comes with a full 30 day money-back guarantee. Meaning if you are not completely satisfied with the course or your progress, simply let the instructors know and they will refund you 100%, every last penny no questions asked.
You either end up with C# skills, go on to develop great programs and potentially make an awesome career for yourself, or you try the course and simply get all your money back if you don’t like it…
You literally can’t lose.

Any course I would want to take on Udemy, I search whether Tim offers that course. He is an excellent teacher, and yeah even this course I get to know many new things. Waiting for the contents to be updated. Thanks Tim.

Yes Tim! I learnt Tims Java course and that was really detailed and covered everything, I really enjoyed the course and I like Tims way of teaching. Then I wanted to learn C# and this course is titled as a "Crash Course" and this gave me some concerns as I have seen stripped back courses before so I thought it might not really be a complete course however it really gets you into C# quickly, it would be annoying to go over all the basic stuff and have a long course that takes ages to get you going. This course really gets you up to speed and teaches you a lot.

Just started a new job which requires me to know C# and SQL and I must get to grips with it fast. So far so good with the course, bite-sized videos help to learn when I have a short amount of time to kill. Some elements confusing as expected but I trust it will come together. Content laid out in easy to reference chapters. Well structured and great lecturers. UPDATE - Halfway point, coming together now, programs getting more involved and more complex. learning lots and missing lots. re-visit expectedly needed so I will be going through the full course again until I understand every element fully. Finished the course, still very confused at several sections, hoping repetition is the key so here we go again, back to the start. Ok, second run through, making much more sense this time around. I am not re-doing the coding as it goes, instead I have printed all of the coding out, paying more attention to the actual videos and pausing whilst examining the programs where needed. Much better after the second time around. Still need to re-visit a couple of the chapters.

This is just what I needed to learn C# I have taken a Java Course by Tim and like it.

Well, of course, this is an ambitious undertaking. I feel like it gave me a solid introduction but still have a lot to learn. I don't feel like I have any real aptitude at composing code. But it would help me check code if I need to.

Just what I was looking for. I come from Java/Eclipse background, and I needed something to get me up to speed with C# and Visual Studio, since I was starting work on another project. Thanks, Tim, for providing one more stepping stone for all our careers.
