You will benefit from this video course. I took this persons c++ course and it was amazing. It is on YouTube. Here is his C# course. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOruiBrXlAw&list=PL_c9BZzLwBRIXCJGLd4UzqH34uCclOFwC

Also, FreeCodeCamp YouTube channel has a video that is 24 hour long, where some creator creates a full C# application

Thanks I am going to look into your sources today!

So far I’ve been spending time on the videos and the guy is a good instructor! He is jogging my memory about basic programming since C sharp is related to C and C++. Thanks again! I still have to check out the 24 hour long video! I just want to get the programming down before I overwhelm myself LOL.

I would absolutely recommend to write a public diary about it.


  • because you don’t want to publish wrong stuff, you will have to re-think the stuff
  • your retention will increase
  • people who read it will correct stuff you understood wrong
  • potential employers will see that you are eager to learn
  • you will find new companions

Make a public dairy about what? Just so I know what you mean exactly, like about my journey learning code through the academy and the internet??

Yes, a public diary about your learning/coding journey.

That sounds like a good idea! I want to feel that programming is part of my life for now on. I’ve been working in construction since I dropped out of college so that will help. I will start a blog or a post on here when I officially start the academy! for now, I will keep this post updated! Do you know another method to have a public diary? I appreciate your advice.

I use twitter, where I have a thread and post regularly.
One benefit is that you also get some followers you can connect to.

Can I follow your twitter so I can get some ideas from you?

Sure, just sent you a private message.

Yea. I used the double tap on YouTube app many many times during his videos since he really does a good job of the basics, but at the same time a very good job for us who know programming fundamentals.
