    Question A Java programmer learning C#

    Hi everyone, as you may notice, I'm new to these boards, I searched for a C# board and found this one.
    I just want to ask, Java has a well documented API and lots of tutorials @ Sun site, and C++ tutorials are everywhere, what about C#? I got 2 books about C#, I think I'm good in the fundamentals now, but I want to know some advanced topics in C# like database access and networking, there are there any good tutorials on the web?
    If not then how did you learn C#, books or what?
    BTW, I visited MSDN site and didn't find anything useful, also I checked some of the links in the C# links page and found nothing useful, did I miss something here?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm also a Java developer trying to learn C#. Depending on how experienced you are in Java, C# shouldn't be hard to pick up. As for online help, MSDN is awesome. You can find everything in the language (just like the JavaDoc for Java on Java.Sun) there.

    VS and MSDN are a good team if you know what you want to do. For examples, visit the sites given in the top thread of this board.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
