I have been an embedded C / assembler programmer for 12 years now. Dealing mainly with
Atmel, I.E. Atmega16,32,128 and the Xmega series.
Then for the more thirsty projects the NXP ARM7’s like NXP1768.
ok, so i was introduced to this whole .NET MF just this past weekend. My mind is still spinning on all what it can do with such ease in coding. It seems almost like a coders dream. I have 2 .NET books arriving today that i hope will open my mind to all of this.
I have been screwing around with Visual Studio Express C# to start my learning. But i gotta admit its been insane to say the least. Things just are not intuitive to do. For instance i was playing with socket connections. I wanted to know what was available to me, so i clicked on the Object Browser > System >System.Net.Sockets > Socket Error. Then in the right pane, you can see a but load of things for that like HostNotFound, IsCOnnected, HostDown and so on. OK? so how in the heck to i get thoes results by using Socket Error ?
Anyway, the point of all of this bla…bla…bla… is to ask this. Rather than bother you guys with to many knob questions. I was wondering if any of you could recommend some good learning sites that you have found useful for learning .NET MF. Or if there are some kind of video courses specifically geared to .NET MF.
Thanks for your time.
