Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Dmitri Nesteruk, and I'd like to welcome you to my course on Cross‑platform C# Programming with JetBrains Rider. As a former technology evangelist at JetBrains, I'm a big fan of various developer tools, and I'm particularly excited to tell you about a new JetBrains integrated development environment called Rider. Now Rider is a cross‑platform .NET‑centric IDE that is positioned as a faster and cross‑platform alternative to Visual Studio. Rider brings with it all the benefits of the award‑winning ReSharper plugin, coupled with the power and portability of the IntelliJ platform. So in this course, we're going to cover the following modules: We'll have an introduction where we discuss what Rider is and what its position is in the field of development environment. Then we're going to take a look at running, debugging, and testing your programs in JetBrains Rider. We're going to take a look at the search and navigation facilities available in the IDE. We'll take a look at some of the coding assistance features. We'll take a look at cogeneration and templating in Rider. We'll take a look at the various refactorings that Rider supports, and we'll consider additional functionality. By the end of the course, I hope you'll gain an appreciation for the advantages that Rider offers, and I hope you'll become comfortable in using Rider to develop .NET applications. The key requirement for this course is for you to be familiar with .NET development in general. Knowledge of IDE concepts and experience with other IDEs, such as Visual Studio, will be beneficial, but it's not essential. So I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about Rider with the Cross‑platform C# Programming with JetBrains Rider course, here on Pluralsight.
