C# Online

C# and the .NET Framework will continue to evolve over the coming months as Microsoft readies both for release. In addition, the submission of C# and the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) to ECMA for standardization will inevitably lead to additional changes.

To stay up-to-date on the latest developments, you should periodically visit the O’Reilly web page (see Section “How to Contact Us”).

We also recommend the following sites:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/net/

The Microsoft .NET Developer Center is the official site for all things .NET, including the latest version of the .NET Framework SDK, which includes the C# compiler, as well as documentation, technical articles, sample code, pointers to discussion groups, and third-party resources.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/net/thirdparty/default.asp

A complete list of third party resources of interest to C# and .NET Framework developers.

http://discuss.develop.com/dotnet.html

The DevelopMentor DOTNET discussion list. Possibly the best site for free-wheeling independent discussion of the .NET languages and framework; participants often include key Microsoft engineers.

http://www.devx.com/dotnet/resources/

The DevX listing of online .NET resources. Very comprehensive and thorough.

Two articles of interest include:
