C# Beginner

Posted 24 March 2012 - 09:02 AM

Hi,

I have as of only 2 weeks ago started a computer science course from little computer experience and absolutely no programming experience. One of my modules is object oriented programming. This module is intended to focus on c#. I have just installed microsoft visual studio 2010 and was wondering if you could recommend any programming projects i could work on to practice my code.

Thank you for all your time.

Where do I start?


You start by learning a coding language FIRST.
Learn to plan before you type.
THEN you start designing software with a purpose.

Otherwise, you can just jump to the resources here:
Some of the tutorials below are for C# or Java not C, C++, VB.NET [...]. But the conceptual stuff of classes, object oriented design, events etc. are not language specific and should give you enough guidance in theory of program development for you to be able to look-up specific code example in your chosen coding language.

I'd suggest beginning visual C# 2010 from wrox.com. After that.. I don't know. But that book has examples and exercises in each chapter which you can do in order to try to learn the language and the concepts. I don't know what your course is focusing on but I think that's a pretty safe bet. In the first part they use console applications almost solely to help you focus on the coding part, then they go into windows forms, then web programming and I believe it has a couple of chapters on LINQ and XML.

But, on top of reading the book, and doing the exercises, I think your best bet is also experimenting and attempting to do anything that you can think of with what you've learned in each chapter. Other than that, I don't know.

There is a big list of projects for beginners

Martyr2's mega project ideas list

Its in the beginners C# section of the resources I posted.

I would also point out that all one has to do is start Visual Studio for a list of resources that includes a recommended reading list and video series.
