Students are expected to be familiar with basic programming and have knowledge of basic object-oriented programming principles. No formal background in computer science is expected.
Not applicable.
Recommended optional programme components:
Not applicable.
Course contents (annotation):
Architecture of .NET Framework, CLR managed execution environment, C# language, Common Type System (CTS), .NET components (assemblies), Framework Class Library
Recommended or required reading:
Jeffrey Richter: Applied Microsoft .NET Framework Programming
John Sharp, Jon Jagger: Microsoft Visual C# .NET Krok za krokem
Tom Archer, Andrew Whitechapel: Inside C#
Anders Hejlsberg: The C# Programming Language, Addison-Wesley 2004
Planned learning activities and teaching methods:
The course is taught through lectures explaining the basic principles and theory of the discipline. Exercises are focused on practical topics presented in lectures.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes:
Graded course-unit credit is awarded on the following conditions: 30% on weekly programming assignments, 70% on the individual project. Participation in the lessons may be reflected in the final mark.
Language of instruction:
Work placements:
Not applicable.
Course curriculum:
Not applicable.
The course objective is to make students familiar with the principles of application development for the Microsoft .NET Framework.
Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences:
There will be no programming assignments during the last weeks of the semester. Instead, students will work out their projects.
