How to learn .NET

Hi to all,

I want to learn .NET Can any one help me how to learn .NET in easy way? Give your suggestions and which is the best ebook to learn .NET

well to learn .net go to

I’m not just saying this because this is the Sitepoint site, but if you are an absolute beginner (like I was), then use the “Build Your Own ASP.NET 3.5 Web Site Using C# & VB 3rd Edition” - by Sitepoint.

If you’re not sure how good it is, download the sample, and see for yourself. plus, check out the reviews on Amazon ( All the reviews are great.

The book will show you how to install the software on your PC, and get going. It assumes no knowledge and starts off from the basics. By the end of the book, you have a working application. I now work in programming, after learning from that one book in the first instance, and then gradually looking at more advanced books. Good luck! :wink:

I would sign up for a night class at your local tech school. That it what I did and was able to pick it up fairly easily. Plus the classes are fairly reasonable, I think around $200 or so for a full semester.

Just do googling,you will find number of online tutorials with demos.

I always prefer, this is the best place to learn from basics.

get a copy of visual studio, decide which language you like to work with (vb, c#…), buy a asp .net book or take a class.

msdn library is also a very good place to learn about the different objects that are available to you sitepoint 3.5 book. Althought a .NET 4.0 book would also be pretty good. I would suggest C#. It is a newer, easier to learn language.

Good luck

I also recommend C# unless you’re used to some of the older programming languages (like VB6) and need a “smoother” transition like VB.NET.

I would recommend a combination of Christian and Wyatt’s Sitepoint book, Build Your Own ASP.NET 3.5 Web Site Using C# & VB, or the new Wrox book that was updated for .NET 4.0, Beginning ASP.NET 4 in C# and VB, by Imar Spaanjaars.
