C# Lesson 2

Matt Bauer 1/8/2020

Learn how to read input from the user.

In Lesson 2 we will be going over basic IO. IO stands for Input Output. We'll be writing text to the console and reading input from the user.

using System;

namespace Lesson2
    class ConsoleIO
        static void Main(string[] args)
            string name;
            Console.WriteLine("What is your name?");
            name = Console.ReadLine();

            int age;
            Console.WriteLine("How old are you?");
            age = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine());

            Console.WriteLine("Your name is " + name + " and you are " + age + " years old.");

            double value;
            Console.WriteLine("What is the decimal value of 1/10?");
            value = Convert.ToDouble(Console.ReadLine());

            Console.WriteLine("I hope " + value + " is right!");


* Create a program that fills out a mad lib with data supplied by the user.
* (Hint: a Verb is an action. A noun is a person/place/thing.
* An adjective describes a person/place/thing.)
* NOTE: Be sure that you have proper spaceing between words.
* Example Output:
*   Enter Occupation(a job): Gardener
*   Enter Noun1: Bird
*   Enter Adjective1: Blue
*   Enter Noun2: Hat
*   Enter Verb1: Fight
*   Enter Adjective2: Happy
*   Enter Noun3: Boots
*   Enter Verb2: Run
*   Enter Noun4: Gloves
*   Enter Verb3: Fall
*   Today a <Occupation> named <Noun4> came to our school to talk to us about her job.
*   She said the most important skill you need to know to do her job is to be able
*   to <Verb2> around (a) <Adjective1> <Noun3>.
*   She said it was easy for her to learn her job because she loved to <Verb1> when she was my age--
*   and that helps a lot! If you're considering her profession,
*   I hope you can be near (a) <Adjective2> <Noun1>. That's very important!
*   If you get too distracted in that situation you won't be able to <Verb3> next to (a) <Noun2>!

        static void Main(string[] args)
            //You will need to make 10 string variables.    ex: string occupation;
            //Then prompt the user to enter a word.         ex: Console.WriteLine("Enter Occupation(a job): ");
            //Set the variable equal to the user's input.   ex: occupation = Console.ReadLine();
            //Finally, after you have all 10 words.
            //You can print the madlib                      ex: Console.WriteLiine("Today a " + occupation + " named");
