“Sometimes it's hard to know what you don't know. Short-circuit your learning of C# and level-up your code with this collection of C# and .NET features.” This is the short description from my newest Pluralsight course that just launched called C# Tips and Traps.
As the description suggests, this course is designed to fill in the gaps in your C# knowledge and to highlight ways to improve your code using often little-known or underused features of C# and .NET.
The course is organized thematically into a number of modules but the great thing about it is you can start with any module that interests you and then move on to another one – you could also just watch them sequentially so you don’t miss out on any tips.
The course modules are as follows:
- String, Character, and Formatting Tips
- Tips for Working with Numbers and Dates
- Data Types and Object Tips
- Tips for Working with Files, Paths, and URIs
- Organizing and Structuring Classes and Code
- Compilation Tips
- Tips for Casting and Conversions
- Runtime Execution Tips
- Bonus Tips
At a total of just over 4 hours running time, there is a ton of value in this course and you can even just dip into the next tip whenever you have a spare 5-10 mins, you could even watch one tip/clip per day with breakfast and see if you can use it at work that day!
If you’re looking for a course that you can consume in bite-sized chunks over the coming holidays and fit in a bit of learning around family and holiday activities this is a good candidate.
Hope you enjoy watching it, and don’t forget you can get a Pluralsight free trial to start watching it.
Ps. This course is an update/amalgamation of two older courses: C# Tips and Traps and C# Tips and Traps 2.
