Transcript

Hi and welcome to this course on C# Generics. In this course, we will start with an overview of generics; by putting them into a historical context and seeing how they can improve code. Then we'll look at the syntax of generics and what options are available to you. Finally, we'll go through some common use case scenarios and see how to use generics practically. This course is aimed at those who have a general understanding of C# object-oriented concepts and want to take their coding beyond the basics of treating class types as simple variables.

To get the most out of this course, you should be familiar with C# data types and have a basic understanding of object-oriented principles.  I recommend completing the C# Data Types and Variables, and Introduction to Object Orientation and C# Classes courses, if you aren't familiar with these topics. To follow along, you'll need a working development environment, either VS Code or Visual Studio. The source for the demo can be found at github.com/cloudacademy/csharp-generics.

My name is Hallam Webber, and I'll be your instructor for this course. When I created this course, all information was current. If you have any feedback, positive or negative, or if you notice anything that needs to be updated or corrected, please reach out to us at support@cloudacademy.com.

Let's start by looking at the issues that generics address.
