1) miscrosoft.xrm.client.dll
2) Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.dll


Step 8 -  Open the class named Class.cs from solution explorer and modify the below code in it.
If your namespace name and class name is different then remember to verify and update it.

Code Snippet : 


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk;

namespace My_First_Plugin
{
    public class Class1 : IPlugin     //{inherit the class Iplugin in your class}
    {
        public void Execute(IServiceProvider serviceProvider)        //{add the execute method}
        {
            // create context , service factory and service objects
            IPluginExecutionContext context = (IPluginExecutionContext)serviceProvider.GetService(typeof(Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.IPluginExecutionContext));
            IOrganizationServiceFactory serviceFactory = (IOrganizationServiceFactory)serviceProvider.GetService(typeof(IOrganizationServiceFactory));
            IOrganizationService service = serviceFactory.CreateOrganizationService(context.UserId);

            //to enter  value in Email field in contact entity

            //create an object of predefined class Entity and pass entity name as its parameter
            
            Entity Object = new Entity("contact");   // in place of contact you can write schema name of entity on which you want to preform operations

            Object.Attributes.Add("emailaddress1", "testemail@gmail.com");  //emailaddress1 is the schema name of the Email field in contact entity
             //testemail@gmail.com is the value

            //to update the record service.Update(object of the entity)
            service.Update(Object);

        }
    }
}

After updating your code your code will look like this
