Another Gadgeteer book


#1

Somebody mentioned recently that there will be a new book released soon. Looks like it is about to happen: http://gadgeteering.net/learn I hope this is going to be good. All the (two?..) other Gadgeteer books I know are far from perfect and useful, in my opinion.


#2

That is the book I saw at the maker faire last weekend. Looks like there is not a C# version.


#3

I saw that said book in the flesh and flicked thru it today :slight_smile:

I guess VB is still considered “easier” language.

Well, I won’t contradict. I’ve been programming VB for years, now I only do C#, but my heart still belongs to VB (please don’t beat me) :slight_smile: VB code looks wayyy much cleaner to me…


#5

I actually asked the creators why it was VB, was an interesting conversation…

And fear not Mike - there is hope for a C# version…


#6

Who put up the gadgeteering.net site?

@ ransomhall - That was my question too.

@ Justin - from IM Publishing? :wink:


#10

@ Architect - Nope - but… :whistle:


#11

I still use both myself for a couple of Apps but tend to use C# more these days. Have even managed to create an ROV Control System with interrupts from a custom ISA card and all using C# on the PC.

The only issue I have is the damn ; at the end of C# lines. I keep adding the bloody things to VB code and getting errors :slight_smile:


#12

There is a C# vision coming after from what I heard.
