Description

Structures to repeat tasks or access data collections are at the heart of compact and reusable code. C#, like other programming languages, provides three basic mechanisms allowing you to execute statements multiple times dynamically. In this course, we'll take an in-depth look at the for loop, while loop, and foreach loop.

These looping mechanisms vary in structure and intended application, and we'll examine how to use them in different scenarios. In the course of this detailed investigation, you will learn some of the potential pitfalls that accompany programming with each type of loop, how to avoid them, and create efficient loops. There are code examples demonstrating the use of each loop type in a practical way, along with other helpful C# and .NET code snippets.

Learning Objectives

  • An in-depth understanding of for loops
  • Learn about while loop syntax and see how they are used
  • Gain a foundational understanding of object lists
  • Learn how to use, and not to use, a foreach loop to iterate through a list

Intended Audience

This course is intended for those who already have a basic understanding of C# and want to learn about loops.

Prerequisites

To get the most out of this course, you should have a basic knowledge of C# as well as an understanding of object orientation and C# classes. Please consider taking our Introduction to Object Orientation and C# Classes course before taking this one.

Transcript

Hi and welcome to this Deep Dive into C# Loops. This course takes a small break from object orientation to broaden our knowledge of essential programming structures. Much of the course's content goes into greater detail and expands on non-object-oriented topics I touched on in Introduction to Object-Orientation and C# Classes. Yes, I know that sounds a bit contradictory, but exploring and developing more complex object-oriented concepts requires a more sophisticated coding toolbox.  The non-object-oriented elements previously discussed were incidental. Completing Introduction to Object-Orientation and C# Classes is the ideal prerequisite for this course, as it gives you the correct context. However, if you know the basics of for loops, you should be good to go.

My name is Hallam Webber, and I'll be your instructor for this course. We welcome all feedback, so please feel free to contact us at support@cloudacademy.com with any comments, positive or negative. Let's get started.
