Hi, this topic is not really related to me, but for one of my friend. He's been trying to learn c# for a while now, but lack the willpower to do so. On top of that, he's always saying how good is book is (C# 2010 for Programmers from DEITEL). I've looked at it briefly (im more of a c++ guy), and really don't get why this book seem so special to him. For him, this book is like the bible is to the pope... I keep telling him that there's a lot of tutorial website online that are WAY better than is damn book but I feel it's like talking to a wall. I remember looking brefly at the c++ version of it and saw some horrible snippet of code, especially when declaring c-string arrays...

 

On top of that, all he does is read the book, but he almost never write any lines of code... I keep telling him that he won't learn just by reading it, but again, he's too lazy to code. Personally, i've found this siteand think it look like a very good starting point. The order in which the topic are layed out seem right, and there's a lot of pictures that show how to do stuffs.

 

Also, he keep saying that he hesitate to learn c# because he's learning lots of networking stuffs that are "too complicated for me to understand", but he's been saying that since 4-5 years now... i don't think leaning c# could affect his other networking stuff much...

 

What do you guys think? Suggestion?
