Basics for .NET beginner developers

Challenge:

Luckily, I’ve been crafting on .NET since last 7+ years. Initially I learnt .NET in college. And then after explored it further during my professional career. Some time back few of my friends asked me, How can they also learn .NET? Which are the best resources to begin with? And then be a .NET Ninja!

You are also learning .NET? Or would like to start learning .NET? Or you work on .NET. But would like to brush up your fundamentals? Then this post is for you!

Solution:

Please note Programming is like swimming. You need to delve in to it. To be a master of it. So, most of the above resources are videos. But would strongly recommend you that. Do practice after watching each video!And here are

And here are some exercises for you:

  1. Create a console application which takes user name as an Input and tells moon sign – as per his/her input
  2. Create a console application which takes a Number – for which user would like to print a Multiplication Table
  3. Anything else?

Few nice to read books:

  1. CLR Via C#
  2. MCTS 70-536 Self-Paced Training Kit – Application Development Foundation
  3. Murach’s ASP.NET

Please remember you can’t be master of .NET/any field over the night. As per research it takes 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to be master of any field. So, have lot of patience. Practice as much as you can! — The harder you practice, the luckier you get!

Also, If possible give Microsoft certification exams — Here is Certification Quick start guide for you!

If you know any other .NET resource, which you think is excellent. And should go in this list. Then please do share it with others via comment!

Happy Programming!🙂
