Learning C# Series

The C# Forum Leaders and Experts are rolling out a new series of tutorials with the focus of providing a learning path for new C# developers. As each tutorial is written, the entry in the list will be replaced with a link to the tutorial. Our goal is to fill in every entry, along with even more if any are requested.

Topics

Beginner Topics


Intermediate Topics


Advanced Topics


WPF for the WinForms Coder



WPF for the WinForms Coder
By andrewsw


Other Useful Tutorials


Let one of us know if you are interested in contributing to this series. If you are, please let me or one of the other C# Forum Leaders know either here or via PM. This way, we won't have two people working on the same article. Please note that if you offer to write a tutorial, you're committing to finishing that relatively quickly. Don't offer for 10 and try to do one a month. Also, please follow the template provided here:

Spoiler


If you think there are any topics that aren't covered, post a reply and we'll see about adding it.

Thanks for reading!

I'll keep a running list of contributors in this post.



When you claim and submit a tutorial, I'll add your name to the list. You don't have to be an expert/mentor/forum leader to contribute.

Is there going to be LINQ-To-SQL as well or will that be covered under another topic?

Looking forward to these :)

I guess we can create a Linq-to-SQL write up, but in all honesty it seems Microsoft is moving towards working full time on Entity Framework/Linq to Entities.

Ah well if that's the case then i'll leave you experts to say what's what ;)

edit: Sounds crude, but is MS Access backend going to be covered in databases anywhere?

That might be something I'll look into myself personally since twice before I've had to pass up contracts because I didn't know how to use them.

I'll probably take a look into it and write a tutorial on basic database creation, CRUD and other tidbits regarding Access and C#.

LINQ to SQL is very similar to Entity Framework, so perhaps that tutorial can cover both. We've also had someone volunteer to do a LINQ to XML tutorial, so I'll add that to the list once it's submitted.

As to the Access bit, it would likely be better to do a tutorial on OLEDB dababases. Access isn't really different than any other database in that regard (except I think you have to do parameters in order). So you can kill many birds with a single stone there.

CodingSup3rnatur@l-360 has submitted a tutorial on LINQ to XML following the pattern, so it has been added to the list, and he has been added to the list of contributors. Thanks for your contribution! If you feel like writing any more, just let one of us know.

Remember, anyone can write one of these, if you have the knowledge. Just PM one or all of us and let us know what you want to write!

I've added the Hello World tutorial; can't believe it took us this long to get that one up!
