Our courses are designed to help you learn programming skills through practice. Here are the practical projects you'll complete with the help of a mentor as part of this course:
Sharpening Your Mind
Start understanding the C-Sharp language, and how we can use its power for ourselves. We'll learn how to think like a programmer, figuring out how to store information and use it to add some flexibility to how our code works. Alongside this, we'll also be finding out how to handle the situations where our code doesn't quite work out as expected.
Data for Thought
We'll begin to see how we can make our programs start making their own basic decisions based on data and logic. But programming isn't just boredom and work, especially here where we figure out how to start making our own simple games through the power of C-Sharp;.

This C# essentials course is made for people with no programming experience. C# is designed to be simple and easy to use. It is a high-level language, which means that you read it somewhat similar to an English sentence so that you can focus more of your energy on the actual programming. C# was originally designed by Microsoft to be used for developing apps on the Microsoft platform. If you want to build apps for the Microsoft platform then this language is definitely for you.
- Motivation and dedication to learn, and apply your mind to more complex tasks in programming.
- Proficiency in both written and spoken English
- Basic computer skills, such as sending emails, file navigation, saving files and opening files.
- Note that this MicroDegree is suitable for beginner-level programmers, since it covers introductory content for each concept.
Equipment and Technologies
- Access to a computer and a broadband internet connection*
- Ability to run a text editor such as Notepad++ or an IDE such as Visual Studio or CodeBlocks, though we will provide you with all installation files
- An email address where course content and other important course information can be delivered.
*The use of Dropbox means you’re not required to be always online while taking this MicroDegree. Even if you don’t have internet - perhaps due to some loadshedding - you can still access your Dropbox folder and continue to edit/update files. As soon as you have internet again, your Dropbox will sync with your trainer and he or she will see your changes. Dropbox and our own website is also available on everything from Blackberry to Apple tablets - so you will be able to learn while on the move.
