Algorithms and Data Structures in C#: Complete Tutorial

Why learn about data structures and algorithms? Algorithms and data structures constitute the fundamentals of programming. Good understanding of algorithms and data structures is one of the most important requirements for a great number of work positions. You'll have to solve many problems related to algorithms and data structures at coding interviews. Indeed, you can live without an understanding of algorithms and data structures, [...]

Multithreading and Parallel Programming in C#

For the last two decades, computers became faster by increasing the number of CPU cores. However, the fact of having more cores itself doesn’t make a computer drastically faster if those cores are not used by software properly. We, as software developers, should know how to write asynchronous and parallel executing code to make our applications faster and more responsive. This course is all [...]

Foundations of building object-oriented infrastructures Despite the fact that C# is a very rich on features language, it's very common to see poorly designed and implemented types in a real world. In fact, C# is one of the richest on features language among object-oriented languages in the world nowadays. But with great power comes great responsibility. It's challenging to use all those features in a right [...]

What the Hell is Functional Programming in C#?

Why Functional Programming I'm starting a series of posts on functional programming in C#. The series is kind of a preview of a video course I'm working on right now which will be released somewhere at the end of February. So, you may ask yourself again “why would I need to learn functional programming”? You may also think that you’ll never use a [...]

The Open/Closed Principle – OCP

The second principle we’re going to talk about is the Open/Closed Principle. If we look at Wikipedia, we will see the following definition: The Open/Closed Principle states that software entities (classes, modules, functions, etc.) should be open for extension, but closed for modification. Problem Statement What it means, in essence, is that when we need to introduce a change, we shouldn’t dig deep into [...]
