Hello from Switzerland

Posted 31 May 2013 - 01:29 AM

Hey everyone,

would like to introduce myself a bit. I am 30 years old and a coding beginner. Started with coding a few weeks ago and switched from VB.Net to C# a few days ago. C# seems to be a bit more difficult but I think it's a bit easier to get help in case of problems. I am not the one reading tons of books .... trial and error is my way :)
But you know there are many problems where this method won't work ^^

Cheers
Moritz

At this stage you should be reading tons of books. Not only does it provide you with a structured way of learning but also shows you best practices to follow.

yes and no-- there are many books out there that are really big POS. you should go to a book store and look around until you find the books that will help you learn easier and better. Just because someone says a book is good for them doesnt mean it's good for you.

watch youtube videos
google programming examples
read books
trial and error coding
debugging

Hello Mortiz83,
Welcome to D.I.C.
If I may input my philosophy when learning anything:
"Erudition is the key to knowledge and understanding. Trial and error is the key to experience.
Combine both and time will be the only thing between basic know-how and mastery " - Notion
