Just what a 74 beginner programmer needed
April 30, 2016
I am 74, not a recommend age to start learning programming. Did a lot of programming back at the time of VisualBasic 1 thru 3 and then decided there were more interesting things... I am now a SOA specialist and I have decided it is time to start programming again, with a more modern tool and chose .Net C#. I intend to start writing web services (soon) :).
The book I am reviewing has turned out to be perfect: I now understand OOP quite clearly as implemented by C# and I love debugging step by step the code which comes with the book. It makes everything so clear.
the book makes sure every single line of code is explained. I am now adding my own comments, step by step into the code (can't rely much any more on the old neurons) and feel I am progressing quite steadily. Isn't this what a beginner's book should be about?
Make sure to comment a copy of the code since for some reason, a nasty "Error CS0501 'Program.Main(string)' must declare a body because it is not marked abstract, extern, or partial" has begun appearing in the code :(
Will keep updating this post.
Update: Although I was aware of it, I failed to mention that the error mentioned above had nothing to do with the author's code -which presents no mistake that I am aware of - but rather came from my fiddling with the code. The error disappeared without explanation:)
