Special Topics in Software Engineering:
Software Development with C#
C# is a mixture of Java, C++ and Visual Basic. It combines Java's type safety (type checking, garbage collection) with the power and flexibility of C++ (e.g. operator overloading, low-level operations). In addition to that it has some new features for component-based programming (properties and events), a kind of function pointers (delegates), reference parameters, stack objects and many other useful things. It also includes features of functional programming languages (e.g. lambda expressions) as well as SQL-like queries on memory data structures or XML (LINQ).
As a companion to this course we recommend to attend also the course Special Topics: The .NET Technology in which the .NET architecture and the APIs for Windows, Web and Database programming in C# are explained.
Students attending this course can download the handouts as PDF documents from the KUSSS web page of this course.
Exam and Project
There will be a written exam.
In order to pass the course you also have to implement a small C# project. The topic of this project can be freely chosen by you. The only requirement is that the project has at least 250 lines of code.
The project has to be presented on your own notebook at the SSW institute (either to Prof. Mössenböck or to DI Weninger). You can combine the project of this course with the one of the .NET course, but the project must be twice the size then, and must be presented in both courses.
