I'm learning C# from the book "Professional C# 3rd Edition" in a vain attempt to move my IT career away from technical support and in to software development. You can do shit like that when you work for a small business. I am sick of pandering to people who lose their word documents or need help installing a wireless PCMCIA card.

I don't imagine this will take me too long as I am very well acquainted with another language, C++, which, as I understand it, is much more difficult to learn than C#. I am not exactly starting from scratch either.

Learning a language which almost forces you into object oriented standards can be a pain, but in the end I'm sure it's worth it. If you know Visual Basic at all, you'll have no troubles with C#. The majorly different thing is advanced event callbacks and many other object oriented concepts.

Yeah, the language does seem a little weird! Like single inheritence and calling member variables "fields"! WTF? Anyway, got to learn .NET and C# was designed specially for it. That's the way I'm going if I want to get away from my hell-desk [smile]

Found a really cool appendix chapter from my book here that supposedly gets accomplished C++ programers up to speed with C#.

Who you working for just now?

I might be looking for an Edinburgh based coding job once I've graduated from St. Andrews in 4 years time.
