Welcome to the GDNet C# Schedule Thread

For a complete introduction to this workshop, please look here. Workshop Overview This workshop is designed to aid people in their journey to learn beginning C# (C-Sharp). This workshop is targeted at highly motivated individuals who are interested in learning C# or who have attempted to learn C# in the past, but found that without sufficient support and mentoring they were unable to connect all the pieces of this highly complex but powerful programming language. This is a 'guided' self-teaching C# workshop. Each student is responsible for taking the time to read the material and learn the information. Additionally, this workshop does not attempt to defend C# as a language, nor does it attempt to demonstrate that C# is either more or less useful then other programming languages for any particular purpose. People who intend to start a discussion about the differences between C# and ANY other languages (except as are relevant to a particular discussion), are encouraged to do so elsewhere. This workshop is for educational, not philosophical discussions. Finally, the community and tutors that arise out of this workshop are here for making the learning process run more smoothly, but are not obligated to baby-sit a person's progress. Because everyone will be working from the same references (.NET Book Zero and optionally the C# Language Specification 1.2 & 2.0), students may find it easier to get answers to the specific questions they might have. There is no minimum age requirement, and there is no previous programming experience required. However, we will be moving quickly so it's essential that students stay on task and dont fall behind. Note: Because the workshop changed primary texts after week 2, the topics in this outline before week 3 may not correspond with the conversations in the weekly forums. If this appears to be the case, the conversations are in reference to the C# Specification, the initial reference text that was used. Workshop Schedule July 1st - 7th: Week 1 (52 pages) 1.

There are a few hundred people signed up for this workshop, and some will drop out but probably not as many as in the C++ workshop because this time we have free reading material.

I'm wondering how will the instructor(s) go through all those projects in only 2 weeks? I assume you guys have a real life job and things to tend to...
