When you say VB do you mean VB6 or VB.NET, if the latter then the move to C# is mostly just syntax as they are very similar to each other C# just being more terse C style syntax.


If you know VB.NET there are tools that will translate VB.NET to C# so you can see how the syntax changes. From memory I believe sharedevelop does this http://www.icsharpcode.net/opensource/sd/

When I want to learn how to do something I typically look for books on Amazon or free tutorials on Google

Buy a good old-fashioned book about C# and start learning.

The only way to the the hang of a new language is to use it. I guess that's where Unity comes into the picture.

But for learning the ins and the outs of a language, nothing beats a book. It's the perfect form factor IMO.

Of course, I am old school..

Don't pick a dumbed down teach yourself in 21 hours/days kind of book, a proper tome that appeals to you.

You need to know how the language works, why it works that way, what makes it tick.



Also, check the date of the book and the version of .NET - it is important. You don't want to learn deprecated stuff...

The Wrox books are good. I learnt c# back in the day using the .NET 2 version of this one http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTitle/C-5-0-Programmer-s-Reference.productCd-1118847288.html
