    C# Book

    I'm likely going to pick up a C# book today. My first text on C#. I'm doing this because I recieved $50.00 Cnd ($35.00 US) in certificates from my local book store outlet, indigo.ca

    I guess I'm growing away from this place, but I'll likely program in C++ and C# simultaneously for about a year. I was actually finally hoping to create a non graphics game or else textual graphics now that I know OOP. Damn, I really need to learn some graphics programming, but I think it would be wise to learn more OOP first! Oh well. Surely I'll get Petzold's "Windows Programming in C#' in January.

    I've been working on C#'s window capabilities lately today, and I can't figure out how to make a damned second form show itself...the only thing I'll ever say good about VB was that all you had to do was Form2.Show...damnit! maybe I'll wind up going straight code for the C# windows API as well...

    Did you try VB.NET yet? How do you like VS.NET beta 2? I thought it was quite good. I think that the thing to learn would be the .NET class framework library because you can use it with any language and it is a system API.

    Great, it won't take much for you to start using C# than!

    I tried VB.NET for about 5 seconds...then I went to VC++.NET, then I've been trying out VC#.NET since then. I love VS.NET! The IDE is so incredibly wonderful. 100x better than the old VC6/VS6 one.

    It will take me years just to explore the .NET IDE. Some things that I noticed immediately was the dynamic help and the window tabs. It's way easier to tab through windows than it was with VC++6. Also it is easier to add files to the current workspace. I have no idea what half the stuff does. I should get a book on the IDE but I have not seen a book like that yet. Definately going to get a .NET related text today though.

    Yeah, I love the in-IDE help instead of having to open up MSDN and looking for things...hmmm....maybe getting a book on C# wouldn't be too bad...

    KEN you should also try to learn some OOP because if there is one thing that is certain, the VS.NET class libraries are dedicated to supporting OOP programming and infact even VB.NET has moved toward C++ in design. Actually OOP is easier to work with than procedural programming. The fundamentals are encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism. C++ is quite good for learning this, but maybe C# will be too.

    Okay I picked up a couple C# beginner books. If I have any code questions I'll submit on the C++ board.

    it would take an army, i HATE JAVA and anything like it...

    Something you should think on real hard:

    MS is EVIL and you don't even realize you following right along with the master plan... there trying to take over the world, this is no joke, you wan to read up on it? say so, but im telling you they are making their move and .NET is going the be the centeral nervous system, their even moving into the home entertainment buisness... NO OTHER PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES, NO OTHER OS'ES, NO OTHER BROWSERS, NO SONY, NO SAMSUNG, NO MITSUBISHI, NO APPLE, NO NOTHING, just .NET and MS.
    You think im playing around or joking around just watch, all your personal info held on MS'es central computers for them to do with as they please, they control the net and its content, no using it without their say so, i'll say this again cause its the truth this is no friggen joke!

    best wake up and smell the roses early, cause their laughing their asses off right now.

    >>MS is EVIL


    Funny until you think about it....

    It seems that M$ are ascending above any corporate goals. The idea that I would trust my personal info with Redmond and they would control who has access to my info like some information bank is ludicrous on initial inspection, but it seems that this is a goal. At this point they are no longer a corporate entity seeking commerce, they are more on a par with a government. Unelected and unavoidable.

    I have stated previously that I admire some of their products, but the stigma of their intentions is always there and it will be harder felt as the next few years roll by.

    Look throughout history...all the "great" empires fell - the Greeks, the Romans, the British - surely the Microsoft Empire will fall eventually.
    Ramble on...

    And all of those left a massive legacy.....

    What will be M$'s leftovers?
