Description

Code that is easy to maintain, extend, and test is key to applications that move quickly to meet our users’ changing needs. In this course, C# Interfaces, you will learn how to use interfaces effectively to create flexible and maintainable applications. First, you will see the mechanics of exactly what interfaces are, and why we want to use them. Next, you will explore how to create your own interfaces to make it easy to change them or swap out functionality. Finally, you will delve into designing effective interfaces to make sure that you are getting the benefits that you need in your specific applications. When you are finished with this course, you will have a good understanding of interfaces and how you can use them effectively in your own applications.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Jeremy Clark. Welcome to my course, C# Interfaces. I'm an international speaker and consultant who makes developers better. I struggled for a long time with interfaces, but after getting a good understanding, I found that interfaces help make my code easier to maintain, extend, and test. This course is a practical introduction to understanding interfaces and how to get over the hurdles that many developers struggle with. Some of the major topics that we will cover include definitions and technical bits, using interfaces to make our code flexible, creating and implementing our own interface to connect an application to different data sources, and practices that help us use interfaces more effectively. By the end of this course, you'll be comfortable using and implementing interfaces to create a layer of abstraction in your own code, and that can make code easier to maintain, extend, and test. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basic features and syntax of the C# language. And after completing the course, you should feel comfortable diving into courses on dependency injection, design patterns, unit testing, and mocking. I hope you'll join me on this journey to better C# with the C# Interfaces course at Pluralsight.
