Thread: Looking For Online Programming Tutorials

  1. Looking For Online Programming Tutorials

    Okay. I'm waiting on pay day to pick up my c# books to help me program. So in the mean time does anyone have suggestions on some free web sources? Been to msdn and watched the videos (kinda boring considering the dude talks in a monochromatic voice) and really haven't gained a lot from it. Since a lot of you have had to learn C# to build your bots I was hoping that u may have some online resources for me and others new to this game.

    Hey El Espada,

    I just did some filtering for ya (there's a lot of crappy ones tutorials there). Here are some good (and free) online tutorials to help get ya started.

    that should tide ya over till you get your books

    For anyone reading this thread, you can download C# Express 2005 (along with any of the other 2005 Express languages) at the following link:
    http://www.microsoft.com/express/200...d/default.aspx

    For anyone interested in a hardback book, I also have an incredible book that has helped me in so many ways when I was learning C#. The title is "Pro C# 2005 and the .NET 2.0 Platform" written by Andrew Troelsen and published by Apress. There have been quite a few revisions since I went through it, to accommodate the newer versions of C# and the .NET Platform.

    I took back the C++ book I bought today to Books A Million and got this http://www.booksamillion.com/ncom/bo...sbn=0735621292 !
    Im going to purchase that book that you mentioned in an earlier post. The one with all of those hardware based projects. Well guys wish me luck on this endeavor. Im extremely mechanical minded so if i can get this down then we should see some cool stuff hopefully.

    I haven't checked that book out yet, so I can't say anything good or bad about it


    Good luck on learning C# El Espada! While I was still learning C#, I found a ton of help in the MSDN forums:

    By all means though, if you got some questions along the way, I can help ya out in our Software and Programming forums

    Don't forget the library. Yes, they still exist, and my local library has a bunch of stuff on .NET and programming in general. I'm sure the selection will vary on how big of town you live in.

    If you don't mind spending a little bit of money (about the cost of a good book) you could check out http://www.learnvisualstudio.net. They have over 500 video tutorials on various concepts and they are pretty well put together. I wish they had some newer ones on .NET 3.0/3.5, but they have plenty of stuff to get you started.

    Haha! Man, how come I always forget about the public library? Yes, definitely check out your local public library! I've found a lot of good programming books at libraries

    good thing about videos its sometimes better then a book
    but big downside is that a book you get to keep for reference in video you cant
