Thank you for stopping by.
Most important: Before enrolling, please take the time to read the course curriculum, and watch the free preview videos so you can be sure my way of presenting information is one that truly works for you. This will give you a strong indication of what to expect throughout the course. Please kindly do not enroll until you have done this. Also, please remember that I am only one person, and I cannot as one person think of everything that you might want covered. If that's the case, please send me a message and tell me what you feel should be added. Thank you.
Lessons 2-39: Introduction to C# as a review for those who are new to programming in C# or are coming from a different language. 
This is not meant to be exhaustive but to simply prepare you for the database project.
It's a review of basic programming concepts.
Lessons 40-45: Text editor project to illustrate more advanced coding.
This project show more practical applications of C#. 
Lessons 46-62: Variety of advanced techniques used in building a database project.
Here you learn how to combine C# and SQL Server.
The code in these lessons gets quite sophisticated. 
Make sure you have MS Office installed for this part or you will not be able to complete the project.
If you're going to use the code as saved on GitHub for this part, it will be more challenging to configure than the code for the simple lessons.
Make sure you look under lesson resources when you do this project. There are updates stored there.
Lessons 63-66: Miscellaneous small projects that show a variety of possibilities with C#.
It's important that you type and run all the code, as I do. To take it one step further, simply ask and answer this question: how can I make one meaningful modification to the code to produce a new effect? Consistently asking and answering this question as you watch the videos will allow you to improve your skills beyond what I show you. 
Please note I develop the material at a relatively leisurely rate, so if I speak too slowly, please watch the videos at 1.25x. 
I'm the author of "Beginning C# Hands-On The Core Language" and "C# Hands-On The Advanced Features", both from PACKT.
Each video is in HD, and project files can be downloaded from GitHub. The link needed is stored under lesson resources. Thank you for reading, and let's get coding!
