Diploma in Visual C# Programming / .NET MVC 5 with Visual Studio Course Overview
Last year, a major study on the Irish Software Landscape found that the #1 factor limiting the growth in Ireland was the "lack of availability of able technical employees". In fact, they went on to state that up to 55% of software development jobs in Ireland are being filled by inward immigration. This means that of the 44,500 jobs that will be created in the ICT sector over the next six years, less than half of those jobs will be filled by Irish workers, the skills shortage is been felt worldwide.
Adam Seligman, vice president of developer relations for Salesforce.com, feels the demand for tech talent stems from the fact that
"Every company is racing to build software faster. They need developers and platforms that can move as fast as their business"
The study also found that the #1 factor limiting the growth of both domestic and international companies in Ireland was the lack of “able technical employees”. With a small pool of applicants to choose from, employers are raising starting salaries to an average €36,500 for a junior developer in an attempt to try and attract candidates. Employers are complaining that there just aren’t enough coders out available; this has led to companies caring less about a person’s formal education in software development theory, and more about the real world practical application in actually building the sofware, as such, coders with applied practical knowlege of programming are ideally placed to take advantage of such skills shortages.
Microsoft Visual C# is one of the most versatile programming languages in the world, it can be used to develop Windows client applications, Web applications, components, Windows Store apps, Windows Phone app, Enterprise, iOS and Android mobile applications. One of the main advantages in learning C# is the languages diversity and adaptability; C# enables developers to easily write programmes for multiple platforms, devices and business applications.
All programming languages require time to learn and master, but the C# learning curve was made to be short for those already versed in programming languages. Microsoft Visual C# also runs on top of the .NET framework, which provides many libraries containing classes used for common desktop and web application including interface design and connectivity to databases. The Microsoft Visual C# programming language is also similar to JAVA with its foundations in the C and C++ languages, so If you know already know C, C++, or Java, then C# will be easy to grasp.
The Diploma in Visual C# Programming / .NET MVC 5 with Visual Studio course is intended for anyone who is new to software development and wants, or needs, to gain an understanding of programming fundamentals and object-oriented programming concepts. It is also aimed at existing developers who wish to broaden their knowledge with a new programming language using the .NET Framework.
The Diploma in Visual C# Programming / .NET MVC 5 with Visual Studio course offers extensive hands-on experience as there are extensive programming exercises provided at the end of each module. The course also provides you with further programming experience through projects that present real world programming experience. Participants will learn the language foundations and learn how to use Object Oriented techniques to design and build powerful applications. The course will introduce the object oriented concepts of inheritance, polymorphism, virtual functions and interfaces that are widely applicable to modern programming languages.
This course emphasizes achieving program clarity through the proven software-development techniques. Student learn skills that underlie good programming through extensive, complete, working programs. This hands-on approach rapidly builds the confidence of new programmers, because all programming concepts are presented in the context in which they will be used.
The course provides a starting point for students wishing to undertake Microsoft exam 70-483 - Programming in C# although further study is likely to be required before sitting the exam.
At present there is major demand for Visual C# developers; increasingly businesses are turning to C# because of its diversity and rapid application development capacities. Another area with a growing demand for C# developers is the gaming industry. While C++ has traditionally been the language of choice for many gaming companies, its younger sibling C# is now making headway. This course will position the participant to work within a business or web design company that has a requirement to develop and maintain secure core business and mission critical systems for mulitple channels and devices.
