Adopt-A-Newbie Program!

Posted 28 January 2010 - 05:10 PM

Hi there! I'm Sergio and I'm putting myself out there if anyone wants to learn C# from the ground up. There is a thread available in the Site Suggestions thread that gave me this idea and I think it's great!

Requirements to join:
  • At least 20 posts. (I don't want some dude who just wants homework help and done)
  • Speaks or writes English/Spanish. Either language is fine.
  • A Skype account, we'll use VoIP to talk online.
  • The will to learn new things and not be discouraged!
If anyone is interested I can take on a maximum number of 5 newbies. I'll update the list as people join.

We'll cover things from the very basic, data types, loops, classes, Lists and see more advanced topics such as Linq. For now, I'm not entirely sure if we will go with Windows Forms or WPF, we'll see.

Leave a message here and we can start! :D


Note to mods: I'm not entirely sure if this place is the best place for the thread, but since it's C# related, I think it belongs here. :)

We might even make an Open Source project. :)

I'd be interested in getting some help, it's been tough trying to learn c# by myself. There are plenty of resources out there but I prefer the old school teaching methods lol!

Don't have a Skype account or a microphone ... yet, but I'll see how I go!

Yeah, I have a microphone so we can talk via Skype. Jbrace and Travis, you are more than welcome to join. :)

Let's wait for one more person to join and we can start.

Great, we have 3 people now: JBrace, Travis and C++Programmer.

Add me on Skype: stapia.gutierrez

I'll prepare lesson 1 with a few exercises for you. We will not be seeing console applications. We will be using WPF as I think that's future tech that's safe to bet on. :P

At what time do you guys wants to have the lesson?

Does not really matter to me, but I have one problem...I am using my Turtle Beach x1 Gaming headset for a microphone, but on windows xp the sound is really low, do you know how to make it louder?

Other than that, I will download Skype right now and I am ready when you are.

I don't know how to make it sound louder. Maybe you can change the mic setting in the Control Panel.

I installed Skype, but I am going to be upgrading from Windows XP to Vista in a day or two, so I will install and backup all of our lessons on a flash drive. Windows Vista stinks in some ways but is really nice in others :D
