Getting Started with C# Programming? Here’s an E-Book or Twenty!

It’s no secret that most people prefer taking shortcuts whenever possible. After all, this is what allows us to get in, get out, and get on with our lives after engaging in whatever field we venture to start a project.

With this in mind, many budding developers often turn to programming tutorial videos and quick start guides to learn development. Sometimes, however, it’s most beneficial to just sit down and read a book on the language you’re trying to learn, especially if you’re stuck somewhere and you need to break free.

Coming from a VB6 development background, XDA Forum Member ScatteredHell found it hard to jump into Java, so he instead chose to learn C#. He found quite a few free e-books along the way that helped him in his journey towards app developer status and decided to share them with the community. To do so, he created a thread listing quite a few free e-books and other resources that he found useful while learning C#.

So far, ScatteredHell has shared links to 16 e-books, but it doesn’t stop there! If there are any you’ve found useful in your own journey, please share them with the community. Head over to the original thread to check out the e-books and contribute what you’ve found helpful!
