In Topic: Can someone point me in the right direction?

10 December 2012 - 04:01 PM

I found a copy of C# Programming for the Absolute Beginner at a local independent computer repair shop that sells used computer books. Ill give it a read through and see what I can learn. Thanks for the recomendation. Since it teaches through programming basic games, this might be a good book for me to start with.

Edit: Ive been seeing posts lately about XNA's future. Are there other options for C# game development if XNA is dropped?

As for the books, its was an auction on ebay that included the books i included and a few others i didnt bother listing.
I have several IDE's installed on both my OS's, and none of them are DevC++. In Win7 i have Visual C#/C++ express, Code::Blocks & SharpDevelop, and on OSX I have Xcode, QT & CodeRunner.

I would really like to learn C++ eventually, but I suppose it is wise to start with C# and go with that till I can manage something with it. I guess I just feel overwhelmed kind of. I will try to get my hands on C# Programming for the Absolute Beginner though and see if that helps. I see its quite pricey on Amazon, but I will keep an eye open for a cheaper used copy.

Thanks for the advice.
