    Please advise.

    Thanks, BHW!

    What exactly is the question here? Are you trying to write a program?

    Or are you asking us whether you should take a C# class?

    I'm not c# expert , but I'm able to code almost any bot using c# (all Teknife bots coded using c#) , i never attended any offline class ... i learned c# online by myself ... there's a lot of good places to learn c# for free/paid ... if you ask about microsoft certifications like 70-483 exam ... still you could prepare for it 100% by free/paid online resources ....

    hope i got your question right ...

    I'm asking about whether or not classroom attendance is a prerequisite to becoming a certified C# Software Developer. If I can learn it online/books/etc, can I simply to sit for an exam, pass it, and then receive my certification, or do I need to have X amount of documented classroom hours?

    That was my question. I just so happened to have placed it inside code for something I just finished learning, and wanted to test myself to see if I remembered how to do it, AND wanted to see if anyone else understood it. :)

    How are you coding bots without having advanced knowledge of C#? I appreciate the response about the 70-483 certification. This is exactly what I am interested in learning about. It seems that there is a 70-484 and a 70-485, as well, though they're geared at creating Windows Store Apps.

    @thetrustedzone Do you have any good resources for learning about programming bots via C#, that you could recommend? Once I complete my current training and also take a look at something @phr0zt mentioned, I'll be more than happy to take a look!

    Thanks guys, for responding!

    I have no idea what goes into getting certified as a C# developer, because certifications are cancer. Fuck all of that shit; just learn how to write C#. No one even looks at certs; if you want a cert, just lie and say you have one. The only thing that actually matters is whether you're competent.

    before thinking about coding bots , you need to have intermediate level of C# , you don't need to be advanced coder to be able to code good bots ... -btw by using the idiom "advanced" i meant same level of C# coders working in top IT companies like microsoft ...etc- , you don't need certifications also unless you plan to get employed as a C# developer in IT company ..., coding good bots in C# - or any other programming language - needs two things :

    1. Intermediate programming level (or higher) , 2. good understanding of internet protocols and mainly HTTP protocol .

    for your question regarding C# for bots , i plan to launch course dedicated for this topic , even i asked for opinions before here but without getting replies ..
    thought ppl are not interested ...

    I think OP is looking for C# certification.

    OP - yes you can be self taught and pass the exams. No need for formal classroom classes. Source? I know someone who has a bunch of certifications and was never in a single classroom.

    Gotcha, and thanks for clarifying...

    And, on that note, I am adding to this...

    OP, virtually all IT/IM certifications can be passed VIA self study. Bunker down and go for it!
