IEnumerable in C# – A Simplified Beginners Guide

In C# and .NET, as programmers we have access to an interface that is called IEnumerable (or IEnumerable<T> for the generic version). Using IEnumerable allows us to iterate from a collection or data source by moving one element at a time. It's also important to note that all collection types in C# inherit from IEnumerable so collections you are familiar with like arrays and lists implement IEnumerable. I have been trying to help educate around IEnumerable usage for many years now so this is a renewed effort to help get more junior developers understanding how they work. As a bonus, if you're interested in working with the code that you see in this article you can clone it down from GitHub by visiting this link. Simple IEnumerable Example Let's consider the following code example that will create an array of…

Everything You Wanted to Know About Multiline Strings

Working with strings is probably one of the earliest things we get to do as C# developers. In fact, if you consider that most of us start with the "Hello, World!" example, you're being exposed to the string type right away. But as you continue to use strings, you'll quickly find that you want to work with strings that span multiple lines and how we define multiline strings might be a tricky topic for beginners. No sweat! In this article, we'll look at some simple code examples that demonstrate how to define multiline strings. I'll also link over to GitHub where you can see this code committed and pushed up to a public repository. Finally, the last example contains a special bonus that I think you'll like (even if it's a slightly more advanced topic). Read until the end! The…

Simple Data Types in C#: A Beginner’s Guide

As a C# developer, understanding the different simple data types in C# and when to use them is crucial for writing efficient and maintainable code. I've been trying to spend more time this year putting together some content aimed at really introductory level programming. There's plenty of resources available online, but I want to do my part to ensure I can help break down some of the barriers for people getting started on their programming journey. In this beginner's guide, we will look at the basics of the most commonly used simple data types in C#, including int, float, double, byte, char, bool, and string. We will also look at how these data types differ from each other and when to use them in your C# programming! Integer Data Types The most commonly used integer data types in C# are…
