Programming Exercises

Posted 29 June 2010 - 09:41 AM

I am trying to come up with a good list of Programming Exercises so no matter what language I want to learn if I can step through these then I will know how to use that language.

The list below is my first shot. Is there anything you would add, take away or change the order of using ASP.net C#?

  • Hello World
  • Add Variables and Display them
  • Create an Array and Display the Array values
  • Create a Structure and Display the Structure values
  • Create a Class and use it to display the values in the class.
  • Create a Object and display the Object values
  • Create a Object that inherits the other object and then outputs the value
  • Display Data from a database
  • Create CRUD Application (C.reate R.ead U.pdate D.elete)
  • Create a Login Application
  • Create a Random Guess Game (Guess a number 1-X)
  • Create a Contacts Address Book Application
  • Create a Calendar with Events
  • Create a Shopping Cart
  • Create a Tic Tac Toe Game


One other issue I find myself with Visual Studio versions and Different .Net Frameworks that the code generated does not always start the same. When I look at other people's sample code and try to write it out it does not always work.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

An exercise that I would probably toss in there somewhere would be to create and use Master Pages. When creating websites they can be a huge help as far as keeping the layout consistent and all that. Otherwise, it seems like a pretty good list you have there.

Some more advice would be to simply get used to all the controls you have at your disposal. ASP.NET offers a lot of tools to make things a lot easier. Perhaps make a few custom controls as well, that will provide a lot of good experience.

Also, take some time to get familiar with IIS as well. That will help a lot.

EDIT: A book that I used when I was learning was "Programming Microsoft ASP.NET 3.5" by Dino Esposito. It provided a lot of helpful exercises to get you familiar with ASP.NET.
