Class Libraries in C#

by Jason Roberts

Understanding and using class libraries is essential if you want to better organize your code, make it reusable, and make it easily distributable to other developers and teams. This course will teach you how to create, configure, test, and distribute C# class libraries.

What you'll learn

Having all your C# code in a single project can be problematic if the project gets too large and hard to understand and maintain. A single project also makes it harder to manage versions of sections of the codebase independently and makes sharing functionality with other developers, teams, and applications difficult. In this course, Class Libraries in C#, you’ll learn to use class libraries effectively to make your software development process more organized and flexible. First, you’ll explore how to create, configure, and test a class library project. Next, you’ll discover how to make the class library consumable on different versions of .NET. Finally, you’ll learn how to version and package your class library so it is easily consumable by other developers and applications. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of C# class libraries needed to create, organize, and share code.
