Week 1
C# & .NET Core Fundamendals

The principal goals of .NET Core is to offer multiplatform support, enable rapid development and upgrades, improve application performance and create simpler and smaller deployments. Packed with the powerful C# programming language, it is the most popular framework of 2020.

Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming

Before the days of object-oriented analysis and design, programmers thought of a program as just a sequence of instructions. The focus at that time was on structuring and optimizing those instructions. With the advent of the object-oriented paradigm, the focus changed from optimizing instructions to organizing a program’s data and functions into encapsulated sets of logically related data items and functions, called classes.

More on Object-Oriented Programming

Dive into more advanced object-oriented programming concepts like static properties and methods, access modifiers and method overloading.

Inheritance & Interfaces

Inheritance allows you to define a new class that incorporates and extends an already declared class. An interface is a reference type that specifies a set of function members but does not implement them. That’s left to classes and structs that implement the interface. Both are core feautures of object-oriented programming and used extensively in .NET Core framework.

Generics & Collections

All the types used in the class declarations so far have been specific types — either programmer-defined or supplied by the language. There are times, however, when a class would be more useful if you could “distill” out its actions and apply them not just to the data types for which they are coded but for other types as well. Generics allow you to do just that.You can refactor your code and add an additional layer of abstraction so that, for certain kinds of code, the data types are not hard-coded. This is particularly designed for cases in which there are multiple sections of code performing the same instructions but on different data types.

Asynchronous Execution

When you start a program, the system creates a new process in memory. A process is the set of resources that comprise a running program. These include the virtual address space, file handles, and a host of other things required for the program to run. Inside the process, the system creates a thread, which represents the actual executing program. All the sample programs shown so far have used only a single thread and have executed sequentially from the first statement in the program to the last. There are many situations, however, where this simple model produces unacceptable behavior, in either performance or end-user experience.

Delegates, Lamdas & LINQ

In a relational database system, data is organized into nicely normalized tables and accessed with a simple but powerful query language: SQL. SQL can work with any set of data in a database because the data is organized into tables, following strict rules. In a program, as opposed to a database, however, data is stored in class objects or structs that are all vastly different. As a result, there's been no general query language for retrieving data from data structures. The method of retrieving data from objects has always been custom-designed as part of the program. LINQ, however, makes it easy to query collections of objects.

Advanced Topics

C# and .NET Core offer many powerful features that you may not need everyday but are useful to know. Some of them include reflection, attributes, events and nullable types.
