View Full Version : C#. Sparked Interest.

August 20th, 2010, 10:05 PM
Hey all.

Recently I've befriended an IT engineer that has really sparked my interest in programming. I've programmed before although I'm years out of touch and used to a language that is no longer in use (became alright'ish at Delphi). I'm now extremely interested in learning C#.

Are there any applications / environments / tools / programs that are available to program C# within? For both or either Linux or Windows? preferably free as I'm strapped for cash as it is and only starting out.

Also, got any advice? Any books you'd suggest I start reading? Any websites online and such that might be of help?

Stackoverflow is a great site to get answers to any questions on any aspect of programming.

MonoDevelop will generally be your weapon of choice for an IDE.

As for learning C#:

A good set of examples to get started with

A little while ago someone did some C# beginners classes a part of the Ubuntu Classroom project, you can look for the logs for the days. As I recall it went through installing the required packages to writing your first example programs.


Finally the Banshee source code is also a good example of a complex application mostly done in C#, you will find examples of most kind operations reading in there.
