    What should I know before trying C#?


    I have a basic understanding of many programming languages (Basic, Pascal, HTML, Javascript, PhP, C, C++, VB). I was wondering if this basic knowledge qualifies to tryout C#. Is it similar to C++?

    you could define "C#" as "C++ using .net classes instead of (MFC, AFX??? what was it called?)"

    Should really be no issue for you then
    Download the .net sdk for free at www.microsoft.com, iirc it even comes with a C# compiler.

    I would say that knowing Java first would be FAR more useful for learning C#. The truth is, they opened the book on how Java was designed when they made C#. The resemblance in many areas is uncanny.
