C#
« on: July 17, 2011, 02:06:25 pm »
Thought I would drop any useful links in here as I come across them in my quest to learn C#.

Firstly this :

Convert VB.NET to C# - simply a free online tool to convert from one language to another. Whilst I don't think I will use it a lot at this stage as I think it will prevent me from learning as much, it might be useful on occasions to compare code.

Visual C# .NET for Complete Beginners - a free programming course - I read through the first few pages and I agree with them that it is for complete beginners. I get the impression that it will be a nice hand holding exercise for anyone starting out. I will give it a whirl anyway.

VB.NET and C# Comparison - what it says on the tin.

C# Language Basic - handy PDF of common tasks.

C# Cheat Sheets - some links no longer work, the two links above came from there.  Some useful things here though.

Is it any wonder  why you have my undying admiration, respect and devotion, Freddy? I think I'm going to name my next pet "fairy ring" after you! :D Or, at least, my next pair of new socks!

Seriously, thanks. I already knew of a VB to C# converter, though this one isn't the same one I saw before. The tutorial link, on the other hand? Simply Brilliant! :)

[edit] I see that they also have that course as a PDF for ­£5.49, and 5 books (three of which I probably don't need) for £10.00. Hmmm... Where can I get my hands on $16.13? At least downloads don't incur shipping costs. :)

No problem :)

You could print it out, I'm not sure how long the course is.  Might actually be cheaper to buy it though in terms of paper and ink costs of the printing.

I suspect, though that the free online version is far shorter and less complete than the downloaded PDF. Perhaps not, but it would be poor business not to do it that way. :)

Yep, I will have to compare the two versions.

Just added some cheat sheet links above too.

I went to the main page at http://devcheatsheet.com and they also had a section on VB.NET

Quite handy, that. :)

I don't know about C+ or C++ but I thought I'd mention my "MakeHuman" program asked me to download  Microsoft C++ Redistributeable 2008 from Microsoft. 
It's a free download and I'm guessing is an aid to lot of programs.

Yep often you will find that programs need that kind of thing to work properly as they use things that are part of that package.

I've been looking at MakeHuman myself recently, have you played around with it much ?

It's fun 3d opensource program. 
You make your own human as you wish him or her.
What caught my eye is you can create human form you wish and then export as obj for other uses.

It's surprising (at least to me) how many programs there are like this.
