I’m a Powerbuilder programmer (with a VB6 background) but because our IT management took the decision to migrate to .NET (more specifically to C#) I started to learn this language. I received a book “Inside C# Second Edition” by Tom Archer and Andrew Whitechapel and I start reading and playing with C#. After 3 days of intense work I’m totally disappointed. I need an application to deal with windows, menus, controls, events, connections with my database, reports and all this stuff I was doing in Powerbuilder, but reading the above book didn’t give any idea how to deal with these issues. I’ve read more then 200 pages and all is about assemblies, manifests, JIT, MSIL, ildasm all is DOS orientated, nothing at all visual, nothing (but nothing!) useful at this stage...
Maybe I started with a wrong book? Could someone give me some advices from where to start learning .NET and C#, but not this useless theory I started already. If this is all about .NET, I’m totally disappointed!
