Adventures in C# Programming is a programming course like no other! It teaches the features of the C# language by guiding you step–by–step through the development of an exploring–style game.

You will learn to

Write a retro–style adventure game like Zork or Colossal Cave

Master object orientation by creating hierarchies of treasure objects

Create rooms and maps using .NET collections, arrays and Dictionaries

Create objects with overloaded and overridden methods

Serialize networks of data to save and restore games

Write modular code using classes, partial classes and subclasses

Program user interaction with a natural language interface

Plus: encapsulation, inheritance, constructors, enums, properties, hidden methods and much more

If you are a beginner programmer and already studying another C# course, this will give you hands–on experience of writing a big and complex project.

If you are an experienced programmer, this will give you a quick way into the twisty little corners of the C# language.

If you are a retro–games fanatic, learn how to write games just like the Infocom classics of the 1980s!

In this course you will learn to write C# your own retro text–adventure game using either the free Visual Studio Community Edition or a commercial edition of Microsoft Visual Studio. All the source code of sample projects is provided ready for you to download, run and modify.

Instructor Details

Huw Collingbourne is the technology director at SapphireSteel Software, developers of programming tools for Microsoft Visual Studio. He is author of The Little Book Of C, The Little Book Of Pointers and The Little Book Of Recursion from Bitwise Books and of The Book Of Ruby from No Starch Press. He runs Bitwise Courses and teaches courses on a range of programming topics. Huw has been a programmer for more than 30 years. He is a well-known technology writer in the UK. For over ten years he wrote the Delphi and Java programming column for PC Plus Magazine.

He has an MA in English from the University of Cambridge and holds a 2nd dan black belt in aikido, a martial art which he teaches in North Devon, UK. The aikido comes in useful when trying (usually unsuccessfully) to keep his Pyrenean Mountain Dogs under some semblance of control.

    Fun course. I have always enjoyed text adventures. When I saw this course, I bought it instantly. It helped reinforce many C# concepts that I already knew as well as taught me some new features that I was not yet familiar with. A recommendation for folks learning to program is to pick a project and use that to apply what you learn. Writing a text adventure game is an excellent project idea. This course will get you started. But there are many ways you can enhance and expand the game beyond what the course covers. The perfect course for those who love text adventures, or are newer to C# and looking for a project to hone their skills.

    Great course if you need to learn and understand OOP and some other design principles. The instructor is really good at keeping you engaged, and I will look out for some of his other courses. NB: This is not a course that will teach you C# as the description says, and the instructor also tells you that in the introductory video, but I really enjoyed the course and it was great fun.

    Yes, I’ve been looking for some inspiration, more than actual C# course and for this I’m very satisfied. I also must praise how well you are explaining hings this can be very valuable to C# initiate; but also your clear diction I had no problems understanding everything despite the fact that English is not my mother tongue.

    Der Kurs ist nun leider schon vorbei, aber das liegt wohl daran, dass er nie langweilig war. Ich habe Lust, ein eigenes Abenteuer auf der Basis dieses Kursmaterials in Deutsch zu erstellen. Mal sehen, wie der Parser f r Deutsch ge ndert werden muss. Ich kann den Kurs nur f r jeden empfehlen!

    This course was a little out of my league as I am just starting to work with C# and programming in general. However I found that the concepts in this course helped me get a good grasp and the things I can do with objects, methods and classes. It’s one thing to read a book or just do excersizes on what everything does, but to see how you would use the Dictionary class or for, if, and case functions in a meaningful was is actually a better learning tool for me. Overall I enjoyed this thoroughly and I’ll definitely be going over it again as I flew through it. Thanks!

    I love all of Huw’s courses, they’re all great! This one is no exception. It’s light and easy to get through while learning a lot. It’s also a really fun project as well.

    I would have liked a little more detail in the later videos, but the support material should fill in any gaps.

    I didn’t really feel like I learnt much with this course; it’s not really that different from just downloading some open source projects and reading through their code. If you’re already at the point where you can follow along with the content of this course then you’re at the point in your programming learning path where this course is somewhat redundant.

    Awesome course! Now I can use what I’ve learned from watching this to make my first game. Great teacher and teaching style!

    It seems okay as an introductory c# course, but it’s not advertised as one. I already know what arrays, etc are.

    The course is fantastic and now I’m thrilled to write my own adventure. This program is short and concise, but it could be difficult to follow if you are a beginner programmer. Those with a little programming background and interest in adventures are in for a treat!
