How to learn C# - The .NET Way (09/12/2009 12:33:31 PM)

Hi All,

Just a quick post today - I've just noticed today that in the Getting Started box of Visual Studio 2008, we have a couple of interesting tasks.

Apart from the fact that the first link doesn't go anywhere (it returns a Microsoft Cross-Link error), I'm kind of amused that Microsoft would consider a scenario where a user would randomly stumble across a product worth thousands of dollars, load it up and install it without first learning OR creating their first application. Apparently you can even learn C# in the click of a button.

Could this explain why so many terrible developers exist these days?

Cheers,
Craig Mattson.

EDIT: I did successfully move out - no longer a Neerim South resident :)
