Skillshop: Intro to C# Programming with SpokaneCreate

  • Spark Center 1214 W Summit Pkwy Spokane, WA, 99201 United States (map)

Are you interested in programming, but have not had the opportunity to learn? This two-hour introductory course teaches you the basics of Windows Forms and programming in C# using Visual Studio. Learn how to create your own application – an easy, fun game that you can take home and play! Basic computer familiarity is expected, but do not worry if you have not heard of any of the tools above. 15 spots available. FREE.


Alex Plagman (Instructor) is a Computer Science student enrolled at EWU and longtime advocate of technology in all forms. As an accomplished Eagle Scout and volunteer mentor for his school’s CyberPatriot team, Alex has spent his past years serving the community as a tutor and role model. A self-taught programmer, Alex also loves to read up on the up and coming successor to Space Pinball and spreading the gospel of “the Cloud.” In his free time, you can find him sewing plush video game characters or defending the wrong pronunciation of aesthetics.

Nathan Cutler is a software engineer by day…and still a software engineer by night.  In addition, he is a co-founder and actively involved in Spokane CREATE!, Spokane’s makerspace.  Nathan holds degrees in electrical engineering, precision machining technology, and applied developmental psychology.  He’s not sure what he’s going to do with all that when (if) he grows up…artificial intelligence robots, perhaps?  When he’s not behind a computer he enjoys hiking and camping with his beautiful wife and very active son (soon to be two active sons).
