While console applications are great, they leave something to be desired. They are missing a graphical user interface or GUI for short. A GUI is an interface that the user can interact that has visual graphics such as buttons, icons, text, etc. In this tutorial, I will show you how to create an empty c# WPF application in Visual Studio 2015.
Console applications are great if you do not have to have a graphical user interface (GUI) for your application. They are also perfect for beginners just getting started with C# because they eliminate all of the distractions and allow you to write simple applications specifically tailored for learning or trying things out. In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to create an empty C# console application in Visual Studio 2015.
Here recently I began developing Windows and web applications in C#. First I started off with Windows console applications and then I worked my way up to building out an entire workout log web application. Along the way, I did some testing and debugging of my applications. Believe it or not, I was able to completely develop, test, and deploy all of my applications with just one single program. This program is Visual Studio, which is an IDE developed by Microsoft for the Windows platform.
A while back I was exposed to C# and .NET through my employer and being the learning guru that I am I decided to learn as much as I could about the topic. I figured it could only help me with my current job and maybe I could do something fun with it on the side. After a long break from blogging, I have decided to start posting more regularly. This post marks the beginning of a multi-post C# introduction and getting started tutorial.
