Course Information

About this course:

This is an excellent course for beginners with little to no prior programming skills. The students who enroll get to learn the fundamentals of programming along with core concepts. Basic learning in this course includes loops, functions, inheritance, classes, polymorphism, and encapsulation. Students also get to dive deeper into programming and learn the storage of data, data handling, data types, exception handling, memory allocation/management, and design structures as well.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 is the main IDE that will be used and students get to learn all these programming skills in either Visual Basic or C#.

Course Objective:

The objective of this course is to provide knowledge and skills on the following.


  • Basic programming knowledge and fundamentals
  • Loops, functions, and algorithms
  • Computer storage and processing
  • Variables, constants and number systems
  • Explain in-depth pseudo code
  • Provide knowledge on arrays, lists, queues, and stacks
  • Concept of classes and their importance
  • Object-oriented programming concepts
  • Some basic level security concepts in application development
  • Explain the base class library in .NET
  • Error and exception handling, and error classification
  • Performance enhancement in applications



This course has a very vast audience pool of different ages. Students of high school, college or universities can opt-in to get a basic programming skillset that can be further enhanced. The course is not limited to just school students, many people who are looking for a career change can get started quickly with this course and in very little time they can find calling themselves developers (or junior developers).
Anyone willing to get started with computer application development can enroll and gain sufficient knowledge to advance their skills further and then can take more intermediate-level courses like (20483B - Programming in C#).



Programming is usually mistaken to be something very hard that people might not understand or might need some extra skills to learn. In reality, it is not, you only need these few things to get started.


  • Know-how of how a personal computer works, able to use the Windows environment
  • A creative and eager-to-learn mindset with constructive thinking
  • Ability to learn new things and excel, and also question a lot as well (how things work, what other ways can the same task be done with fewer resources, etc)

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. What are the prerequisites to the Introduction to Programming (MS-10975) course?

There are no prerequisite to this course. This course is basically designed for anyone who is new to Programming or software development and wants to gain an understanding of programming fundamentals and object-oriented programming concepts. They could be high school students, post-secondary school students, or career changers, with no prior programming experience.

Q2. How will this training benefit me in my current job role?

This training will help you to get a quick start in your programming career.

Q2. What is the exam criteria for the course?

There is no exam for this course.

Q3. Explain exception handling mechanism in C#?

Exceptions in C# are handled using try, catch and finally blocks.

  • try block : The code or set of statements which are to be monitored for exception are kept in this block.
  • catch block : This block catches the exceptions occurred in the try block.
  • finally block : This block is always executed whether exception is occurred in the try block or not and occurred exception is caught in the catch block or not.

Q4. Explain the difference between error and exception in C# ?

Exception handling is a mechanism to detect and handle error at run time where as Errors are occured at development/compile time.

Q5. What is the base class from which all the exceptions are derived?


Q6. What is Pseudocode?

Pseudocode is the way of explaining a program or code using natural language plus a little bit of code part.

Q7. What is Const

A variable declared as constant must be assigned a value at declaration, and this value may not then change at a later time.

Q8. What is C# Data Structures?

  • Array
  • ArrayList
  • List
  • LinkedList
  • Dictionary
  • HashSet
  • Stack
  • Queue

Q9. Can a function have more than one parameter in C#?


Q9. What is binary number system?

The binary number system is a numbering system that represents numeric values using two unique digits (0 and 1).

Q9. What is constructor in C#?

Constructor is a special method of a class, which is called automatically when the instance of a class is created.

Q10. How is method overriding different from method overloading?

Overriding involves the creation of two or more methods with the same name and same signature in different classes (one of them should be parent class and other should be child). Overloading is a concept of using methods at different places with same name and different signatures within the same class.

Q11. Can you return multiple values from a function in C#?

Yes. Using output parameters. A return statement can be used for returning only one value from a function. However, using output parameters, you can return two values from a function.

Q12. Which class acts as a base class for all arrays in C#?

The Array class is the base class for all the arrays in C#. It is defined in the System namespace. The Array class provides various properties and methods to work with arrays.

Q13. What is the default access for a class?

Default access specifier for a class type is internal.

Q14. What is the default access for a class member?

Default access for the members is private.

Q15. What is a sealed class in C#?

When a class is5 declared sealed, it cannot be inherited.

Q16. How will you create sealed abstract class in C#?

No. It cannot be created as abstract classes cannot be declared sealed.

Q16. What is value type variable in C#?

Value type variables can be assigned a value directly. They are derived from the class System.ValueType. The value types directly contain data. Some examples are int, char, and float, which stores numbers, alphabets, and floating point numbers respectively.

Q17. What is datatype in C#

A datatype in C# is a container that holds a value.

Q18. What is a property in C#

A property in C# is a member of a class that provides a mechanism for classes to expose private fields
