    Within the past week and a half I have taken upon myself to dive into learning c#. Quite exciting so far and cant wait until I can develop my first full blown application. My goals are to develop games and other apps for WP8 and Win8 to start. Since there is not much competition yet I believe now is the time to get in on this. I have some amazing ideas for applications that I have wanted to create since the first iPhone and now im actually taking steps to put it into action. Just out of curiosity to other c# programmers, how long did it take you to be able to develop what you had started learning c# for in the first place? I imagine most people have a goal in mind rather then just wanting to learn code just for the sake of learning it.

    If you are a starter If I were you i would choose Visual Basic it's more easier to learn and work with also you don't need to learn a lot of codes. But if u like C# u can work with it and don't forget it takes time to make a project. Wish u all the best in your projects!

    Ideally you should learn and develop in parallel. Once you're familiar with some sample applications, You should start working on the application which you intent to. Time to develop something depends on your logical skills + exposure to use different built-in namespaces/classes or libraries.

    I think you should try with a more basic one, C if you are a beginner, though it doesn't really matter. All the best!

    I've been learning C# for some time, but I am goddamn lazy and can't get myself to continue, altough I really liked it. Yeah, odd, isn't it.
    But it's fine choice, as you can take advantage of ASP.NET and such. Carry on.

    If you want to learn to program, pick a basic project and do it. Don't worry about tutorials and guides, you won't learn anything. The only way to learn is to try, get stuck, then search for that answer. You wil learn more by fixing your bugs then reading any book.

    Obviously you need to know the basics, the structure of if / for / functions / classes. Once you have that, just get on with it.

    Good luck

    Yes, you're right.
    I'm not really a C# newbie, my tool is going well, but I miss some basics.
    That's the reason I wanted to read some faqs.
    Anyway, thanks for your advice.

    I recommend you the Lynda course of Foundations of Programming, Object Oriented Programming and Introduction to C#, then you can read the book Head First C#. It has helped me learn the foundations first. You can spend the first weeks just in the foundations of programming first.
