*anguished howl*  
Three freaking days trying to solve this problem and the answer was in the bloody chapter before the one the teacher assigned!!!

*furious howl*


Excuse me, but I really must go stab something now. Repeatedly.

You're taking a C# class? Cool. (sorry if I'm behind the times, lack of internet will do that for you).

How's it going? I've pretty much only worked in VB.net so far but I keep meaning to do c# too.

You're not that far behind the times. Up until the class pissed me off immensely I hadn't really been saying a lot about it. Since, well, I really expected it to be not really remarkable.

Anyway, C# itself it kind of cool. I'm a little disappointed in some aspects of the IDE. There were things that have been incorporated in the VB IDE for years now that are still missing from the VS.Net environment. I'm decidedly annoyed that Intellesense doesn't seem to work in the Immediate window. I'm hoping that later versions of the IDE correct this oversight.

C# itself seems to be a pretty logically put-together language. Some of the concepts seem like they are taking OO a little too far to me, but I can see where doing it the way they chose to is probably a good way, since it does allow for more flexibility. And there are pieces to it that I absolutely love. (Automaticly initializing variables to default values? Automatic object de-allocation and garbage collection? Thank heavens! And array handling seems to be the sanest I've seen in any language.)

Oh, and I'm quite annoyed that error handling is not covered until the last week of the class. Yes, it's good that it is being handled. But it would probably be more useful to put it ahead of, say, the unit on database integration. Since, y'know, it's pretty common for problems to arise when trying to connect to databases. Obviously there is yet more working ahead on my own in store for me before I can complete the project due next week. *sigh*

I was originally thinking that I could take C#, and that combined with my VB background would allow me to convince potenital employers that I know VB and I know .Net, so there is no problem with me working in VB.Net. Though after this class I'm starting to think that maybe there is vaule in getting a second teaching input on the .Net environment, since this instructor is a bit over the top on the do it yourself style. What do you think of VB.Net?
