New to C#, not to programming

Recommended Posts

Hey all, first post on a pretty cool looking site...should've signed up here a long time ago, lol.

Anyway, I've been programming as a hobby for something like 6 years, and I've learned numerous languages for game and web programming, and now I would like to learn C#. I don't need tutorials on how to program, I just need help learning the functions and whatnot for C# and XNA. My objective is to be able to create 3D games.

For example, I learned enough PHP to do just about anything I want in just a week by learning the syntax from the first chapter of a book, then learning the commands by googling references and a couple random articles on the internet. However, C# is a lot more complicated... XD

So yeah, are there any tutorial sites or something made for people like me? Or do I just have to learn a little patience and learn the slow way? Google hasn't helped at all...

Welcome to Gamedev!

If you've got some programming experience, [url="http://www.charlespetzold.com/dotnet/"]this book[/url] might be just what you're looking for. It's clear, and gets through most of the key aspects of C#. It'll certainly be enough to get you going, and it doesn't harp on programming basics.

Being a programmer already, it's highly likely you've already found this, but here's the MSDN overview for XNA.

and the MSDN reference

Heh, I knew I couldn't be the only guy who didn't learn C# as his first language. XD

Khaiy, that book looks pretty good for learning C#...though not XNA...but PropeticEdge's link should at least point me in the right direction for that half. I probably saw that link on Google a couple times, but I usually ignore stuff on MS's website, just 'cuz it seldom actually helps me any, lol. But that link looks useful. Thanks to both of you.
