Hello everyone.

Due to the covid19 and the current lockdown in my country (Argentina) i finally took a further step and i’m currently learning C# (Mostly interested in BackEnd, Desktop Software and Games).

Even tho i tried to start with tutorials from GameDev.tv about Unity, stopped half way and decided to get into the language itself before going to Unity (hope it was a good decision). I took the free april trial from PluralSight and been working on the C# Path from the Website.

Even tho i’m almost finishing the Scott Allens course, which sometimes i get difficult to get into, usually go to alternative websites to get a better grasp like (https://www.tutlane.com/, https://www.tutorialspoint.com/, https://www.completecsharptutorial.com/).

My goal was to try to finish some little projects, like a calculator, which already did. I even tried a few codewars.com exercises which sometimes i found out difficult to follow along.

Do you have any other advice for a beginner on what kind of projects or what kind of path should i take on for a better understand of the fundamentals of a language?? I’m willing to pay for a learning site, something than doesn’t go like crazy on price.

Hi @hditano,

It seems to me you’ve found the right path and it’s good to have some kind of projects which you can work on and learn new things with.

These can be a lot of project from creating a small application with c# to something bigger. Think about what drives you, what makes you happy. If the answer is cars, then create an application for cars. Maybe calculating something like the fuel depending on the speed. That’s just an example of course. It can be anything.

If you can’t think of any projects, I’ll recommend going to another website just like pluralsight - Udemy.com. There you will find a lot of good courses and you’ll be able to choose the one that suits your need the best.

Thx for your reply @KDSys , just after writing this Question, i went out and started to look out for Web Scraping, which seems kinda interested.
Maybe i could get into a small console application to scrap information about a specific topic and sort it for prices, condition, location, etc.

  • This sounds really interesting and would help you develop your skills.

    I do have one more recommendation, do not cut corners. If you can’t do something do not skip it. Do everything possible to learn how to do it.
