I'm reading through a rather extensive C# tutorial online, and I wrote the "Hello World" program, naturally. But they're throwing concepts at me, and I have no place to apply them. What are some simple program ideas to test the concepts I am learning? Or is this even a good idea?

It is always a good idea to program more. You won't learn unless you continue to challenge yourself.

As for simple programs to write, just pick a problem and aim to solve it. One idea for you: Create a pick a number game, then refactor and refine it unto a choose your own adventure game. Keep going until you've got a whole little SUD written.

You will need things like conditionals, loops, string parsing, and more as you continue to grow what started out as "hello world" into a fully fledged game. Edited by Washu

If you don't have any other programming experience I'd guess the language's basic constructs will help:

 

Variables. Loops. Calling methods. Calling methods with arguments. Make a simple class and use it. Put class instances in containers and access containers.
