C# Learning Resources

C# Learning Resources

C# is an object-oriented, strongly and statically typed, programming language. This differs heavily from Lua, which is a dynamic, weakly typed programming language with less restrictions and different coding conventions than C#.

As such, it is recommended to start learning C# from a clear point of view. Below are some good resources to start with.

Supported IDEs

Visual Studio 2019 (Community) is a free IDE which fully supports C# and gives you the required tools to start programming for s&box.

Visual Studio Code is another free lightweight code editor, which supports C# as long as you install the extension for it. While it lacks some of VS2019's tools, it will work perfectly fine alongside s&box.

Rider is a licensed IDE by JetBrains. It supports C# and will work with s&box perfectly fine. Developers with the GitHub Student Pack may get access to it for free.

Official Microsoft Documentation

Microsoft's official documentation and tutorials are a very good starting point for beginners.
