I just know a bit of Python and Java (but not game programming), I'm preferring to start game programming using C# to be able to use the XNA.. So I had a few questions..

1. What's the best book/site for first-users?
2. (dumb question) Can C# be used to develop iOS/android games?

EDIT: thinking about this

http://www.gamedev.net/page/books/index.html/_/technical/directx-8/xna-40-game-development-by-example-beginners-guide-r1433

but will wait for suggestions if any... Edited by HElwy

I can definitely recommend that book from the link you posted. If you are a beginner it does a great job of explaining every detail of several different types of games. It doesn't throw you into the fire too quickly that you can't understand what is going on.

That book is great. From personal experience, highly recommended. However, if you got a basic knowledge of C# before you start on that book it will be even better. Because it is not a C# book per se, it does not try to teach you C# too. However, since you already have some knowledge of Java, picking up C# will not be difficult. All the best with your XNA adventure. smile.png

I don't know much (if anything) about developing for those platforms, but I do know Unity3D supports them, and C# is one of the scripting languages supported by Unity - so yes.

I can recommend 2 great web sites for XNA - http://www.riemers.net/ and http://rbwhitaker.wikidot.com/xna-tutorials. They both have very detailed tutorials that can get you started (and even a bit further).

One of the best places to find XNA articles, examples, tutorials and source code.
