Module 2: Core Programming Language Concepts

This module covers programming language syntax and the importance of using good syntax and following the syntax rules for the chosen language. This module also discusses the core data types and how to store these data types in computer memory by using variables and constants.

Syntax
Data Types
Variables and Constants
Lab : Working with Data Types
Selecting Data Types
Declaring and Using Variables for Numeric Types

Define syntax
Explain the different types of core data used in programs
Declare and use variables and constants in a computer program
Module 3: Program Flow

This module covers how code is executed in a computer program, such as top to bottom, in structured programming and branching in code execution. The module teaches these concepts through the use of functions, decision structures, and looping constructs.

Introduction to Structured Programming Concepts
Introduction to Branching
Using Functions
Using Decision Structures
Introducing Repetition
Lab : Creating Functions, Decisions, and Looping
Implementing Functions
Implementing Decisions in Code
Implementing Repetition Structures
After completing this module, students will be able to:
Describe structured programming
Create and use functions in your code
Create and use decision structures
Create and use looping structures
Module 4: Algorithms and Data Structures

This module introduces the concept of an algorithm by examining a daily routine such as a morning routine for getting up and going to work, outlining all the steps required including the decisions to be made as the routine progresses. The module also discusses how to translate these set of steps into pseudo code for evaluation of the algorithm that will be translated into actual code.

Understand How to Write Pseudo Code
Algorithm Examples
Introduction to Data Structures
Lab : Working with Algorithms and Data Structures
Working with Pseudo Code
Creating Data Structures
After completing this module, you will be able to:
Transfer problem statements into pseudo code
Create algorithms
Translate pseudo code into programming code
Create simple algorithms in code
Create data structures to store data
Module 5: Error Handling and Debugging

This module helps students understand that errors are a part of programming and they must understand how to anticipate errors, handle those errors in code, and present a good user experience with a program. This module introduces structured exception handling as the mechanism to deal with errors.

Introduction to Program Errors
Introduction to Structured Error Handling
Introduction to Debugging in Visual Studio
Lab : Implementing Debugging and Error Handling
Create Structured Exception Handlers
Using the Visual Studio Debugger
After completing this module, students will be able to:
Implement structured exception handling
Debug applications by using Visual Studio 2013
Module 6: Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming

This module covers an introduction to the concepts related to object-oriented programming (OOP). The content has been split across two modules with this module focusing on basic OOP concepts that will provide sufficient knowledge to understand complex data structures starting with structs and then moving onto classes. This module helps the students gain an understanding of how to encapsulate data and related functionality within a class.

Introduction to Complex Structures
Introduction to Structs
Introduction to Classes
Introducing Encapsulation
Lab : Implementing Complex Data Structures
Creating structs
Creating Classes
After completing this module, students will be able to:
Create and use structure types
Create and use basic class files
Choose when to use a struct vs a class
Module 7: More Object-Oriented Programming

The module also provides an introduction to the base class library in the .NET Framework so that students can start to think about the existence of functionality in other class files and how they can search the .NET Framework to find this functionality and take advantage of it. This module teaches students about inheritance and polymorphism in classes and function overloading. Function overloading and polymorphism can go hand-in-hand as often times when you inherit from a class, you want to override or change the existing behavior to suit the needs of you class.

Introduction to Inheritance
Introduction to Polymorphism
Introduction to the .NET Framework and the Base Class Library
Lab : Implementing Inheritance
Creating a Base Class
Inheriting a Base Class
Lab : Implementing Polymorphism
Implementing Polymorphism by Overriding a Function
Implementing Polymorphism by Overloading
After completing this module, students will be able to:
Use inheritance in OOP
Implement polymorphism in your classes
Describe how the base class library is constructed
Find class information by using the Object Browser
Module 8: Introduction to Application Security

This module helps students think about security in their applications. This module introduces the concepts of authentication for users and also introduces the concept of permissions for the code that is running on a computer. It explains that operating systems might prevent certain aspects of the program from executing, such as saving a file to a directory to which the user running the app might not have permission to write. The module briefly covers code signing and why programmers might want to consider using code signing.

Authentication and Authorization
Code Permissions on Computers
Introducing Code Signing
After completing this module, students will be able to:
Describe how authorization and authentication work
Describe how to apply access permissions for executing code on a computer
Explain how code signing works
Module 9: Core I/O Programming

The module also talks about reading and writing files, which is an important concept to know because applications work with the files on the disk systems on computers. This module introduces some core input/output (I/O) concepts that programmers will use while creating applications. Starting with console I/O, this module introduces input and output to the Console window.

Using Console I/O
Using File I/O
Lab : Core I/O Programming
Reading and Writing with the Console
Reading and Writing Files
After completing this module, students will be able to:
Read input from a console
Output data to the console
Read and write text files
Module 10: Application Performance and Memory Management

This module enables students understand that memory on a computer is a finite resource. It talks about how good application design and good coding discipline with memory conservation and memory management will help programmers learn to develop applications that users will like. This is because these applications will be fast, responsive, and do not negatively impact other applications.

Value Types vs Reference Types
Converting Types
The Garbage Collector
Lab : Using Value Types and Reference Types
Converting Types
After completing this module, students will be able to:
Implement value and reference types correctly in an application
Convert between value types and reference types
Use the garbage collector
