  • Hi Armin.Programmer,

    In addition, I would suggest that you could pay attention to update on .NET – spanning new announcements, roadmap updates, and important support lifecycle changes. such as some document, blog, etc. like this:

  • Hi Armin.Programmer,

    I also like add that watching various beginner's tutorial also gives you an idea about which method or class to choose when you write your code. You can look into Microsoft Virtual Academy as they have a good collection of courses on various Microsoft technologies. If you like to start learning you can look into the following tutorials.

  • Hi Armin.Programmer,

    The more you know, the more questions. I've found some particular things very helpful as i wondered how to solve an item or thought : there must be an easier way. Many programmers already solved a similar problem. The question how to find them and then what to ask.

    In my experience the crucial thing is collecting the correct keywords and describe your problem to the point. Then google, place the question in a forum and definitely look at the help files. Many of us are willing to answer an spot on question. 

    Example: You are looking for a method to do transferring. This question is to big (transferring what? mail, bytes, transactions, etc.) Make your question to the point: for example: My application needs to send collected data by FTP to a server. How to setup FTP in my app and do the transfer? this is much easier to answer and also much easier to google and search here on the forum.

    Hope this helps

    Best regards,

    Rudolf

    You write it yourself. 

    If you want to find a method, then don't forget to put "Method" in the search string, if you want to find a Class then don't forget to insert "Class" in the search string.
