Need advice making a program , i'm new to c#.

Posted 20 July 2012 - 02:53 PM

I need a very simple program but i don't know how to make it since i'm fairly new to programming and what not.
Here's the concept so if anyone can help :

(I'll try to ilustrate with brackets )
[CD SHOP Limun,Teslic(that's just a headline , the name of the shop)]

[Add new customer(button1)] [Chosse customer(dropdownmenus)] [Print the bill(button3)]
here it would do as it says so here it would be needed to does exactly as it says
enter a name of a new customer choose the customer you are selling to
and add it to the database pretty much self-explanaitory

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Stop trying to architect a program while you are still learning the basics of C#. It just never works. Its like saying you are going to learn home architecting WHILE you hammer boards together without a blueprint, and try to learn both new skills at the same time.

First learn the language. Do a couple hundred tutorial projects where you build what you're told to build, the way you are told to build it WITH AN EXPLANATION OF WHY so you can learn.

Then later you can start architecting your own simple stuff. Build a calculator. Build a DVD library program. Etc. Stuff that doesn't involve the complexity of a game.

Then move up to games.



There are three routes people seem to take when learning programming.
  • Just start trying to create programs
  • Start taking apart other programs and try to figure out the language by reverse engineering
  • Follow a guided learning course (school or self-teaching books)


For the life of me I can't figure out why people try 1 & 2. I strongly suggest taking the guided learning approach. Those book authors go in a certain order for a reason: They know what they're doing and they know the best order to learn the materials.

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.

Dude, lay off the excessive amounts of RedBull. You have to ease into being a programmer and build up your caffeine tolerance slowly. Chugging that much energy drink is just making you ramble and repeat yourself like a meth head.

Next: As I said, first you need to learn C# language syntax and Object Oriented concepts. Then look at our tutorials section as there are plenty on databases.
