Getting started with C# - for free!

This is a re-blog of a post by Christian Liensberger, that was posted on Microsoft Channel 8 website.  I usually don’t subscribe to repeating others blogs but thought this one was worth breaking that rule.

Always wanted to learn C#? Never wanted to buy a book for that? There are great news for you! Rob Miles, a professor at the University of Hull and .NET Micro Framework [2] addicted, released his C# teaching materials for free.

He called it the "yellow book", since it is structured like a normal book, and made it available from

The book contains 185 pages and covers everything from how to start with C# (like the basic language constructs) to how to create user interfaces, components and even how to encapsulate the logic of your application into business objects.

After having read the book you probably want to try what you learned. To do that you might download the Visual C# Express Edition package. It is a free version of Visual Studio and comes with everything that is required to develop programs in C#.

Thanks Christian for posting this awesome resource,  you can read Christian’s post here, or head on over to for Robs original post and to download it.
