To polish your programming language skills, you’ve to build practical projects. The same goes for C#. Just learning its basic concepts is not enough in the real world.
You may use C# to create a Final Year Project for your college or university. Or maybe display some projects on your portfolio to get noticed by potential customers.
I know selecting the right project can be a tedious task. So today, I’ll give you some C# project ideas and from where you can learn how to develop them. It will definitely help you give a head start.
Basically, I’ve divided the complete list into four sections. These are mentioned below:
- Starter Project Ideas
- Intermediate Project Ideas
- Advanced Project Ideas
- Expert Project Ideas
So, it will help beginners, intermediate, as well as professional C# developers.
In case you’re not familiar with C# and are looking for a great resource to learn its concepts then I would highly recommend you to check this Fundamentals Of Computer Programming With C# guide. You can even download the PDF for offline access.
Anyways let’s have a look at the best C# project ideas.
In this project, you’ll create a random number-guessing game. It works through the command line, so you don’t need to design any special user interface (UI).
This is one of the most basic projects you can make using the C# programming language.
For implementation details, you can click the below link of the video tutorial.
As human beings, we sometimes have to remember a few things for later use. So, why not create a note-taking software that preserves all the information for us?
In this app, you will create a basic UI with a form, some input fields, and a few buttons.
You may keep this app running in the background and open it whenever you want to add a new message or check the previous ones. It will help you quickly preserve the information because sometimes a slight delay results in forgetting the useful details.
This project enables you to start using a database with C#. It’s because in a telephone diary we store different records of people. So, a database is very useful for CRUD (Create, Retrieve, Update, and Delete) operations.
For beginners, this project can be a game-changer as it allows you to design a user interface, handle events (like a button click), as well as introduce you to commonly used SQL queries.
Tic Tac Toe
Tic Tac Toe is a very fun game to play in your free time. Traditionally, it is played on paper. But, C# is well equipped to create it as a software application.
Here, you will use WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) for rendering the user interface instead of Windows Forms. WPF is far more flexible and advanced than its counterparts.
In the below video tutorial, you’ll learn how to create a Tic Tac Toe game using WPF in a step-by-step manner.
People love to hear music. And you probably have a music player installed on your computer. But, to understand how it works, you have to create your own.
This project will enable you to select a song from your computer and play it. Of course, there are some other features like controlling the volume or play the next song, etc.
So, overall a music player app will definitely help improve your C# programming skills.
A paint software usually comes with every operating system. So, have you ever wondered how it works?
This video tutorial will help you create a very basic drawing app where you can select a color and draw something on the canvas.
A digital clock project enables you to understand different date-time formats. It is a bit important project because in real-world applications we usually work a lot with date and time.
For example, we store the current date and time whenever a user creates an account, log information, update last seen, etc.
Car racing game
The idea of this project is to create a 2D car game. Here, you’ll control the car and collect incoming coins without hitting the enemy.
It will help you get familiar with the actual mechanics of how 2D games work.
Check this video tutorial for a step-by-step guide on how to design this car game using C#.
Twitter is a great social media platform to share a brief message with your community. In this project, you will send a text or image tweet using C#.
You can even enhance this functionality and launch software for people who want to schedule/automate their tweets.
Sales Management System
Businesses are always looking to improve their sales management system. Most of the small businesses are still storing useful information on paper.
Isn’t it great if you create a website that enables companies to handle their sales department with ease?
You have to use ASP.NET and C# to develop this sales management website. The great thing about this project is that you’ll also learn how to implement a login/signup system for users.
Here’s a nice video tutorial to help you get started.
Managing a library can quickly become a herculean task. It’s because it requires a lot of record-keeping. If a librarian is tracking everything on paper then it makes the whole library management even harder.
So, this project will help you explore how existing libraries keep track of their books. And then you can transform that knowledge into a C# application.
At first, you’ll design a login/signup system, after that create modules like Books, Student, Issue Books, Return Books, Complete Book Detail, etc.
You can watch this video tutorial for complete guidance.
The Flappy Bird game got immensely popular because of its simple logic. Basically, the player has to control a bird and fly it between green pipes without hitting them.
In this project, you’ll use Unity (a game development platform) and C#. It will help you learn how real-world games are developed. You’ll even get familiar with different game mechanics like Physics, Scenes, etc.
