One great place for picking up sample code is CodeProject (www.codeproject.com). They have everything there from general programming tips and algorithms to excellent sample code written in C# submitted by the general public.

I would also look at the MSDN Library at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/default.aspx and there is also a "How do I..." section at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/vcsharp/bb798022.aspx which could be useful.

If you are looking for books, just to Amazon and search for C# books. They will be rated and you can avoid the ones people don't like. I thinks it's best to get opinions from lots of people when buying books and not just one

Good luck, and I hope you enjoy C#

you could always start with the free ebook microsoft gives about C# coding:
http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en...1&locale=en-us

edit: sorry, the book used to be free here: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2009/0...book-download/ but this option has expired.

It walks you through building your first program.
Why are you learning C# (what type of programs do you want to build?) and what is your programming experience?

I learned python first. Fiddled with that for a bit, then started learning C++, but never really got deep into it. After that I learned the Arma 2 scripting language very well, I was a developer on the CLR (chenarus life revolution) mod. Also learned some basic SQL. Now I think I got enough experience to tackle a harder but more powerful language like c#.

Projects I have in mind include a weightlifting routine builder, input what body parts you want to improve and it will build you a routine. Based on techniques that are well known to work, ample rest cycles, proper set/rep ratios for your goals (size, strength, or endurance), 3-4 day splits ect ect Then output it to a text file so you can print it out and take it to the gym.

Im also looking into directx, i'd like to learn to make a simple game engine, fiddling with stuff like that is a lot of fun.

watched all 8-10 hours of those MSDN videos, they were very helpful up to lesson 12, after that you make a RSS reader application, but instead of actually writing code, the video has you download the code then the guy gives a terrible summary of what he did to make it. I didn't even write a single line of code on it. Kinda a let down but still learned tons from the 1-12 lessons.

Is there anywhere else there's free videos like the msdn ones?

My favorite book is C# in Depth (second edition is coming soon, and is available here).
In my opinion it's a must have for any C# developer.

Stack overflow is also a pretty good resource, and you should also check some blogs out (like codethinked and Mitsu's).
These sites aggregate many different blogs: DotNetShoutout and DotNetKicks.

For videos, while not C# specific, you can check www.asp.net or here.

C and C# while they have the same general grammar are quite different. I'd suggest using the links above as a starting point.

I think he meant C++
Even so, C, C++ and C# are all VERY different in every possible way.
