    Hey Everyone,

    So I have just started teaching myself Unity, and although I feeling like I am getting it, the C# stuff i feel im lacking in

    I have been working in IT for about 15 years, but always as a Admin\Engineer and although I write scripts with Powershell and some basic VB, I have never "coded"

    Because of what ive done in powershell, I kinda get the jist of what is going on, but feel like I need to start learning more

    Im wondering if anyone has some good resources to get me started

    Thanks

    I have started software development in c# 2.0 and throughout this time I have read and watched many software articles and tutorials. From this I would recommend you follow this man who I've watched over the past 8 years. Check out his Pluralsight tutorials which are full of great info, followed by examples to follow, allowing you gather a good understanding on the topic presented.

    I've been doing these :

    C# Fundamentals with Bob Tabor, microsoft.com

    And learning on the job.

    Bob is pretty good, he knows when to skip over something and when to go in to detail which is really important for me the way I learn.

    Next thing is to just practice. Getting good at something takes thousands of hours. Write as much C# as often as you can, you'll probably do it wrong but over time you will read more and you will improve.

    Also find a good book/tutorial/blog on "Data structures and algorithms" its the most basic but hte most important course you would do if you studied CS or Software engineering.

    It describes dictionary's, lists, trees, recursion, loop etc and when to use which one.

    The courses above will explain all of this, but its up to you to find one you can actually finish and enjoy
