  • Hi,

    there are a lot of books available. I really liked these books:
    - SelfPaced Training Kits are great. They can give you a good understanding of a technology. So far I read these: 70-536, 70-505, 70-511, 70-515, 70-516, 70-503 (maybe 70-505 is no longer of interest because it targets Windows Forms, 70-503 is the old WCF book because the new one wasn't available last time I checked it.) and also 70-433 (SQL Server Datatabase developer)
    - Object Thinking of MS Press to get an overview about how to develop object oriented solutions
    - Microsoft .Net: Architecting Applications for the Enterprise (MS Press) to get an understanding what is important with object oriented applications
    - Agile Project Management with Scrum (Maybe not really required if you do not want to develop software in a small team - in which something like SCRUM is really good)

    So you see: Just with books you can spend years reading ... But never forget to get practice, too! (That is a reason why I like the Self-Paced training kits - I am always spending some time after each chapter to play around with the covered technology)

    Another important thing is to talk with others. I really learn a lot when I talk with colleagues or even through my active participation inside these forums. The important point here is, that you need to be famlar with the documentation provided. MSDn Library is a great location and I like to read a question and then look it up and even play around a little before answering!

    With kind regards,

    Konrad

    the best place to get started should be the Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4 Training Course.

  • Although people can create .Net applications after a couple of months, it will more than likely take you a few years to be able to develop enterprise solutions. Becoming a good developer is something which is measured in years, not months.

  • The best answer is...it depends ;-)

    The training course will give you an overview about certain technologies. Your first little application can be build within hours. A bigger project can take weeks/months. This depends on the requirements/complexity of the project and what technologies you're using, like ASP.NET, WPF, Silverlight, WCF, etc.

    Depending on the technology there are a lot of resources. Most of the time the starting point will be the MSDN. Questions can be ask on (also depending on the technology) http://www.asp.net, http://www.silverlight.net, or in one of the forums here.

    If you want to have something like a 'training application' you should create a scenario (like a blog engine for web applications) where you can use many different technologies and which can be extended with other components.

    But remember, programming is a step-by-step process. To become familiar with some concepts/technologies can take a while. Sometimes you will learn a lot in a short time and sometimes it can take a while to understand a concept.

  • Books, training courses, videos, webcasts, blogs, MSDN Online, training kits.  All found via Google.

    As Horizon stated, there are many technologies which can be used to create .Net applications.  You need to do some research and determine what technologies you want to use.

  • Like Konrad said, there are many ways (depending on what you like).

    My first starting point for a new technology is normally to look if a training course is available - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/gg299335

    If I face any issues I google for it or search the MSDN. Also I have bookmarked several blogs about specific technologies.

  • Yeah - great point! I also have all the Training Kits on my system! They are available for all technology I think - I got them for Visual Studio, Windows Phone (There you can get 2 - a Basic and an Advanced one!) and Lightswitch.

    It might not be that great for a complete beginner (Then some introductions are best in my eyes) but once you found a start it is a good point to look at. Also when a new version is available it can be good to look at the TrainingKit.

    With kind regards,

    Konrad
