This course is designed to introduce students to the concepts of computer programming using the C# programming language.  The student will write programs to implement a variety of typical applications.  There will be an emphasis on structured programming techniques, writing readable code and developing user-friendly programs.  Concepts introduced will include:  data types, constants and variables, flow of control, decisions and loops, forms and simple C# controls as elements of the user interface, arrays, scope of variables, functions, string manipulation, rudimentary file operations, and error handling.  


Recommended Preparation:
Eligibility for ENG 100 or ESL 100 and Completion of CIS 101A or CIS 5
