While C# is a statically typed language, it also has (often overlooked) dynamic features. For example, using the dynamic keyword allows the instantiation of dynamic objects whose structure is not known by the compiler at compile time. In this course, Dynamic C# Fundamentals, you'll learn how the use of dynamic C# makes some difficult and cumbersome programming tasks easier to write and work with. You'll learn how dynamic C# can make COM interop easier, enable adding of arbitrary properties at runtime, and simplify working with JSON and SQL data. You'll also discover how the dynamic keyword can reduce XAML boilerplate binding code and even enable interoperation with other dynamic languages such as Python. By the end of this course, you'll know how to take advantage of dynamic C# in order to reduce the amount of code that needs to be written, make it more readable, and give yourself more time to deliver more features to the customer.

Hi everyone, my name's Jason Roberts, welcome to my course, Dynamic C# Fundamentals.

I'm a Microsoft .NET MVP, freelance developer and author.

In this course, we're going to learn about the (often underutilized) dynamic features of C#. We'll learn how dynamic C# fits together with regular C# code, how it's use can improve developer productivity, and also increase the readability and simplicity of our code.

Some of the major topics that we'll cover in this course include why we might want to use dynamic C#, some examples of its use in various different types of .NET applications, how to create our own custom dynamic classes, and even how to leverage features of other dynamic languages from our C# code.

By the end of this course you'll understand how dynamic C# is implemented, how to use it in various .NET applications, how to customize the dynamic capabilities of your own classes, and how to interoperate with other dynamic languages such as Python.

Before beginning the course you should be familiar with using Visual Studio to write C# code.

I hope you'll join me on this journey with the Dynamic C# Fundamentals course, at Pluralsight.
