Learning Visual Studio 2010 Professional

    Question

  • I just purchased Visual Studio 2010 Professional with MSDN a couple of days ago.  I would like to become a Web and Software Developer using this software.  I also own Expression Studio 4 Web.  My programming experience is C++ and HTML.  Can someone recommend what I should study in MSDN, Book or Websites to become an intermediate user with VS 2010?  I would like to learn how to write Win32 applications using C++.  What other programming languages should I become familiar with to be a successful web and software developer?  And what MSDN, Books or Websites do you recommend to accomplish this.  I don't see much in the way of training in MSDN.

  • Hi,

    you should start only with one topic (because this is a very wide range of topics). If you want to become a web developer and you would focus yourself on Microsoft technologies you should have a look at ASP.NET (Web Forms and MVC) - http://www.asp.net/

    C# is a very good choice for a programming language in all .NET related technologies (you will find most of the examples in C#).

    For recommendations about sites or books you should specify the technology you want to start with.

  • The technology I want to start with is ASP.NET and C#.  Could you recommend a book or books that would help me utilize ASP.NET and C# in Visual Studio 2010.  Remember I am new to Visual Studio 2010.  I would like the book to teach on the VS 2010 platform.  Thanks a bunch.
