C# Day in Waltham on June 23rd

  • Comments 7

Interested in learning C# (for free)?  Michael de la Maza is coordinating a community hands-on C# learning event on Saturday, June 23rd right here in Waltham!

What: Microsoft C# Day
When: June 23rd, 9am - 4pm (8:30am - 9am registration)
Where: Microsoft, 201 Jones Road, 6th Floor, Waltham, MA
Who: People who are new to C# or new to programming

Join us for a relaxed, no cost introduction to C# programming. By engaging in participatory activities, you will learn some of the most common and powerful features of the C# language. By the end of the class you will feel confident in your ability to write C# programs.

No prior experience is necessary -- we will start by learning how to create a new project in Visual Studio/Express!

This day is not lecture-based. There will be fewer than 30 minutes of lecture material -- almost all of the time will be spent on participant-guided activities. Everyone who attends will learn what interests them at their own pace in a relaxed, tension-free environment with an experienced C# developer and trainer available to answer questions.

All participants must bring a laptop with Visual Studio or Visual C# Express installed. Visual C# Express is available as a free download from Microsoft:
