New Lesson

I finished C# basics, and I think I am really starting to like the language. I am waiting for the Objects and Classes lesson to come out. Which I think was suppose to come out a month ago. Does anyone know the exact for this lesson, or loves the C# language.

Also, how can you build an app using C#

Clearly, the C# Objects course has been delayed (again). But hopefully not for much longer.

You built an app in the course you already took, right? Or when you say "how can you build an app", perhaps you mean "how can you build a mobile platform app..."?

Though the courses teach language skills that will be generally useful, when creating software for a particular target platform, you'll need a bit of extra knowledge unique to that platform. There are platform-specific courses here also, but the platforms usually have a specific language most development is done on.

While C# is heavily used in servers, it hasn't been the major development language of mobile platforms. However, there is a cross-platform development software package called Xamarin which is gaining popularity. It's a commercial ($$) product that allows you to develop for multiple mobile platforms using C#.
