In a digitalized world, such as the one we live in, not knowing how to code will put you at a disadvantage. Regardless of what your goal is, wether its to find a job as a developer or not, knowing a little bit of coding can be really handy from time to time. 

And C# is a great language to start. Why? Well what I like the most about C# is its structure, its a strong typed language. What does that mean? It means that everything is "defined" in C#, which in turn lets you write beautiful code, you will see that at one point writing the code becomes an art, it just looks beautiful when you structure it the correct way.

Leave the aesthetics, with C# you can create anything, desktop application, websites, Android/iPhone applications, games, anything you can think of, you can create it with C#.

By learning to code with C# you will be able to jump quickly into any other language, if you need to at some point. The reason for that is, again, the strongly typed and well created hierarchy in C#, which will basicly teach you everything you need to know about coding in general. 

All programming languages are pretty much the same, on the basic level the difference is only in the syntax. All of them have variables, loops, arrays etc., so if you think that you will need to jump to another language at some point, do not worry, you will be able to do that with ease. I myself started with C#, then I moved on to a little bit of Java, then a little JavaScript, then a little TypeScript, and if I didn't have the solid foundations that I have with C#, it wouldn't have been that easy!

This is why I am able to help you forge the most solid foundations that you may ever get in coding. Just like everything in life, your first exposure to something new is the most crucial one. 

This course will teach you both the theory and the practice behind coding. You will learn by watching, by doing and mostly by struggling. 

You will also find numerous examples and projects to practice what we are learning and nothing will be left out. At the end of each section there will be a short quiz that will test you for some of the tricky parts of that section. 

Exercises are also provided so that you can try to code on your own, most of them will not be solved in the course, but you will get hints from time to time on how to solve some of the hard ones. And of course you can always ask a question in the QnA section of the course! I will answer within less than 24 hours!

Remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question, the devil is in the details!

Plus, you have a 30 days money back guarantee, so if the course does not meet your expectations, you can get your money back, no questions asked!

In this Fundamentals of Programming course you will learn in a basic and very complete way the most elementary notions about software development. This course will give a complete overview of all the most basic concepts to learn how to program, which will allow you to understand any language thanks to the general perspective that you will acquire. In fact, throughout the course you will learn how to apply each new idea in 9 different languages simultaneously.

Youwilllearn the basics of programming in several of the mainareas of software development:

  • Web Development

  • Mobile ApplicationDevelopment

  • Desktop ApplicationDevelopment

I encourage you to take a look at the syllabus and any of the classes that are available before you buy the course and you will certainly want to see the rest of the course.

The languages that we will see in this course are the following:

  • Python

  • Ruby

  • JavaScript

  • PHP

  • Java

  • Go

  • C

  • C++

  • C#

In addition, you will have downloadable educational material, suggested exercises and examples of real-life software usage, so that you can understand how such programs have been developed and know how to do it yourself.

The course is divided into several sections:

  • Introduction to Programming

In this section you will understand what programming is, what programming languages are, what different types of languages there are, how they interact with the machine's processor, you will know what's really going on internally, which areas of development exist and in which languages they can be carried out, as well as the different tools you can use to program in each of the 9 languages addressed in the course.

  • Data Handling

Here you will learn the types of data that exist, how each language handles them, how to do operations with values and advanced resources such as arrays and multi-dimensional matrices, to store mass data.

  • Structured Programming

In this section you will understand how the execution flow of the instructions written in the program’s code works, so you will learn how to take control of the execution and decide what your program should do at each moment.

  • Modular Programming

Discover the most basic ways to group the code in independent blocks to have all the instructions better organized and in an optimized way. This will help you to maintain and visually understand the execution process.

  • ObjectOrientedProgramming (OOP)

You don't really know how to program if you don't understand Objects, what they are, how they work, how to create and manage them, as well as how to establish Inheritance between Objects and the use of Polymorphism. In this section I will show you all these things with several practical examples.

All concepts are explained in detail, step by step, and with an emphasis on explaining the purpose of each thing. This way you will be able to lay the foundations of your professional development from the very beginning.This course will allow you to expand into any area of software development.

Isn't it great? Best part of it all is that it's within your reach.

Learning a programming language is not easy. There are tons of books, articles, video tutorials out there. For a beginner it’s quite overwhelming. I saw people lost their interest quickly after going through all the theories. 

If you have read programming books or watched online courses, you may have noticed most of the time everyone starts by explaining all the terms of a language. For a newcomer these topics do not make sense. It’s not necessary right away when you are just starting. I believe there is a better way to introduce coding to an absolute beginner. 

I have been thinking about this for a while and have come up with a solution. In this course I am going to teach fundamentals of programming through coding exercises. It is a crash course in Java, a widely used and very popular programming language.

Programming is the process that professionals use to write code that instructs how a computer, application or software program performs. At its most basic, computer programming is a set of instructions to facilitate specific actions. If you're wondering what a computer programmer is, it's a professional that creates instructions for a computer to execute by writing and testing code that enables applications and software programs to operate successfully.

Computers can do amazing things, from basic laptops capable of simple word processing and spreadsheet functions to incredibly complex supercomputers completing millions of financial transactions a day and controlling the infrastructure that makes modern life possible. But no computer can do anything until a computer programmer tells it to behave in specific ways. That’s what computer programming is all about.

At its most basic, computer programming is little more than a set of instructions to facilitate specific actions. Based on the requirements or purposes of these instructions, computer programming can be as simple as adding two numbers. It can also be as complex as reading data from temperature sensors to adjust a thermostat, sorting data to complete intricate scheduling or critical reports or taking players through multi-layered worlds and challenges in games.

What is Python?

Python is a popular programming language.

It is used for:

  • web development (server-side),

  • software development,

  • mathematics,

  • system scripting.

What can Python do?

  • Python can be used on a server to create web applications.

  • Python can be used alongside software to create workflows.

  • Python can connect to database systems. It can also read and modify files.

  • Python can be used to handle big data and perform complex mathematics.

  • Python can be used for rapid prototyping, or for production-ready software development.

Why Python?

  • Python works on different platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, Raspberry Pi, etc).

  • Python has a simple syntax similar to the English language.

  • Python has syntax that allows developers to write programs with fewer lines than some other programming languages.

  • Python runs on an interpreter system, meaning that code can be executed as soon as it is written. This means that prototyping can be very quick.

  • Python can be treated in a procedural way, an object-oriented way or a functional way.
