C# topics and modules

Just to clarify upfront: Any topic can be explored in depth as per your request. Your needs take precedence. You decide what your team needs. We create the concept. If your team just wants an overview, then you can choose quite a lot of topics. However, it will likely be difficult for the team to put into practice what they have learned afterwards.

So, if you want to work with C# seriously and professionally, then, based on our experience, it is better to select fewer topics and discuss them in depth during the training and conduct sufficient practical workshops. In fact, "less is more!" here. We can best identify the topics that are goal-oriented for your team and your projects together in a consultation.

We don't preach theory, we solve problems! Get the maximum knowledge for your team. Compile the topics according to your previous knowledge and needs, depending on the project. Because individual learning brings the desired success!

C# Basics

Here, the basic language elements and concepts of the C# programming language are treated in a practical, compact and lively manner. The theory is optimized to the essentials, varied examples and tasks that increase in difficulty make the introduction to C# not only easy, but also very exciting. With a lot of fun you will enjoy your first sense of achievement and afterwards you will be able to program small C# programs consisting of several classes. Here you will master the most important basics of C# and C# development environments.

The C# Basics module includes the following focus areas:

Effective C#: Clean Code and Unit Test

This is the top class module! Your team has very good and solid C# knowledge, can implement industrial and demanding projects in C#?

Yet errors and bugs are piling up? Your team spends more time debugging and correcting than developing more features? Every new requirement becomes a challenge? A small change in one place causes code to break in other places? The team has many quality discrepancies? Only a few people know code very well, so the whole project depends on them? Worse, these experienced people are unhappy? Because they have to be permanently available even on vacation and have to jump in every time a new bug occurs?

It is exactly in such cases that it makes sense for your entire C# team to master the art of writing Clean Code and Clean Unit Test and put it into practice in their daily work. As a result, the code is permanently improved and more understandable for all team members, code quality and productivity increase. Because if every developer produces above-average code, the quality of the code improves from day to day. As a positive side effect, this makes it easier for new employees in your team to get started and familiarize themselves with the code base.

With Clean Code and Clean Unit Test, your team produces effective C# code, high-quality code that is easy to extend, test, and understand, and can respond quickly to new requirements. Your team's productivity and quality, as well as your customers' satisfaction, increase when you can meet deadlines, deliver stable software, and set certain quality standards in the process.

The Effective C#: Clean Code and Unit Test topics module includes the following focus areas:

  • How can I recognize bad code?
  • Clean Code and Risk Management
  • SOLID and OOP Code Principles
  • Clean Code Rules for names, comments, functions
  • Clean Code rules for classes, objects, data structures
  • Clean Code rules for exception handling
  • Functional programming in C#
  • Functional programming in C#
  • Effective C#: Best Practice
  • .NET Core Unit Testing: MSTest, NUnit, xUnit
  • NUnit Foundation: Annotation, Assertion, Parameterized Test
  • Finding test data: Equivalence classes and boundary data test
  • Naming test methods
  • Test Driven Development (TDD)
  • Test Double techniques: Mocks, Fakes, Stubs, and Dummies.
  • Mocking Frameworks: Moq Framework

Object orientation, design and architecture

While the topics in the Effective C# module ensure that your team can write classes with structured and good code and thus produce above-average quality, the focus in the OOP, Design and Architecture module ensures that the relationships between the various classes and the design remain agile and flexible, so that new requirements, that are not quite compatible with the design can still be implemented correctly, well and quickly with manageable effort, by allowing your team to apply proven software architecture solutions such as design patterns as well as very effective object-oriented design principles such as SOLID, dependency inversion, hexagonal architecture or even microservices here.

The topics in this module should not only be mastered by every good software architect, but also by every C# software developer, because with them every developer is able to understand the interfaces to other classes as well as the software architecture and to adapt and extend it if necessary. The topics in this module round out and effective C# best practices and rules and significantly increase the productivity and quality of your team.

The Object orientation, design and architecture module includes the following focus areas:

  • Basic concepts of object orientation
  • Inheritance, abstract classes and interfaces
  • Practice-relevant software architecture
  • Entwurfsmuster (Design Patterns) in C#
  • Designing, structuring, and implementing large projects:
  • SOLID
  • GRASP
  • Architectural styles, hexagonal architecture
  • Microservices in C#
  • Behavior Driven Development (BDD)

Working with legacy code in C#

Do you need to understand a complex C# code base without a test suite and implement further requirements based on it? Your team doesn't dare to change the existing code because side-effects can occur, the changes may affect other modules and cause errors in other places? In other words, you need to work with C# legacy code and want to learn the best strategies and techniques to first build a safety net so that you can gradually understand the existing code and refactor it into clean code? Then this module contains the right focus for you! Having to understand and work with an old complex code base without a test suite is by far the most unpleasant thing software developers have to deal with on a daily basis. But not if you have mastered the techniques for working with legacy code. With the appropriate know-how and practical best practices, this challenging task becomes one of the most interesting tasks.

The Working with legacy code in C# module includes the following focus areas:

  • Safeguarding tests
  • Incremental improvement of code and tests
  • Seams and their specifics in C#
  • Refactoring patterns for legacy code

Working effectively as a team

These modules cover techniques that help make teamwork more productive and improve the quality of the resulting software.

The Working effectively as a team module includes the following focus areas:

  • Version control (Git)
  • Docker
  • Continuous Integration (CI)
  • Workflows: Issue Tracking, Pull/Merge Requests
  • Example: working with a local GitLab instance in Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • Elasticsearch/Kibana (OpenSearch/Dashboards)

EXAMPLES: CUSTOMIZED C# COURSES

The following examples show how some courses can be structured for typical customer requirements.

Example 1: Modern C#

You are starting a C# project, but some of the team members have knowledge of Java or C++, but not C#. To get these team members to a level where they could productively work on the code base, a course with the following modules would be appropriate:

  • Introduction to .NET Framework
  • Date types and operations
  • Variables and Properties
  • Classes and Objects
  • Arrays, Enum and String
  • Methodes and control flow
  • Abstrakt Classes and Interfaces
  • Data Structure: List, Map
  • Lambda Expressions
  • LINQ, REST/JSON
  • Concurreny and Asynchrony

Example 2: Clean Softwarearchitektur in C#

You are a team of experienced developers for whom neither the C++ programming language itself nor the basics of object orientation are new territory. But you want to better structure the large software project you are currently working on and prepare it for future requirements. Then the following modules might be right for you:

  • Practice-relevant software architecture
  • Design patterns in C#
  • Designing, structuring, and implementing large projects:
  • SOLID
  • GRASP
  • Architectural styles, hexagonal architecture
