Starting Up

The goal of today’s activity is to learn C# skills and incorporate your new-found knowledge to create a Guess The Word game! Let’s get the game set up.

Open your favorite internet browser (such as Edge, Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer), and go to https://aka.ms/nuevoguesstheword. Your screen should look like this:

We will ignore some of the details on this screen, but we will go over some of the basics that show up. The main.cs file contains code, or instructions for the computer to run. By pressing the run button, you tell the computer to perform the instructions in the code. Any results from running the code will be displayed on the right side, called the console.

If you press run now, you will see that nothing happens! Your job is to help Nuvi complete the code for this game!

Click the fork button to create a copy of the code for yourself to work on. Any activities under the Activity sections will be done in this browser tab. You will do these activities on your own, but help is available when you are stuck.
