    In my past 8 years of programming, google has been my #1 friend. The knowledge I have gained through books is nothing versus the stuff I have learn't about programming by doing searches on google and reading blogs. There are tons of blogs/forums run by millions of developers worldwide helping the beginners.
    So if you are learning C# and are stuck anywhere in your project, do a search on google, you will find a way to solve..sometimes the complete project that you are working on!!! You will be amazed what google search will bring to you!!

    Yup, my first AutoIt and C# programming I did I taught myself and Googled every specific issue I came up with. Still do it when presented with a problem. It beats the hell out of learning general stuff which will never address your specific issue.

    I agree with this. Heres a tip, once you get the basics of a language down think of what you want a program to do. Determine what functions it will need and then google for anything you dont know about that function.

    Google is your 1st friend if you have internet access.
    But if you don't the help and documentation is all you have.
    Some people just don't know nowadays to RTFM.

    I'M using http://stackoverflow.com more and more these days.
    Been coding since 1994 - learning curve is faster. Understanding fundamental topics will often be omitted if you just search for knowledge on G.

    Keep extending your skill set and set high goals :)

    Thanks

    Google is your friend in just about anything. And if you are spending a lot of time behind the computer screen this search proves that google is really invaluable. :)
