Understanding and using exceptions is vital if you want to create maintainable code that responds correctly to runtime errors. This course will teach you how to handle errors in C# applications by throwing, catching, and customizing exceptions.
Missing or incorrectly implemented error handling code can lead to data corruption, unnecessary crashes, annoyed end-users, out-of-hours support calls, and hard to maintain code. In this course, Exception Handling in C#, you’ll gain the ability to correctly handle runtime errors in your C# applications. First, you’ll explore what exceptions are and why we use them. Next, you’ll discover how to respond to errors that occur in your applications at runtime. Finally, you’ll learn how to throw exceptions in your own code and even how to define your own custom exception classes. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of C# exception handling needed to handle runtime errors in your C# applications.
Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Jason Roberts and welcome to my course, Exception Handling in C#. I'm a freelance developer and author. Exceptions in C# give you a structured way to respond to runtime errors in your .NET applications. Without them, you have no way of preventing your application from crashing, no way to perform your own logging when things go wrong, and no way to try and correct errors before your users lose all of their work. In this course, we're going to learn how to manage and respond to errors that occur when your program is running. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include why we use exceptions and not error codes in C#, where exception classes come from, how to respond to runtime errors, how to signal your own runtime error conditions, and even how to define your own custom exception classes. By the end of this course, you'll know how to respond to and manage runtime errors in your C# applications in a structured and readable way Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic C# syntax. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to handle errors in your C# applications with the Exception Handling in C# course at Pluralsight.
