MS Visual Studio

Go get it!

  • go here and grab the latest release
  • Download it to your machine

NOTE: Visual Studio 2008 Express is not compatible with XNA. You will need Visual C# 2005.

Install it!

  • Run the install for Visual Studio
  • Just use defaults for setup

NOTE: The download was actually just a tool to download Visual Studio. That's why it was so small. The actual install will be a much bigger file, especially if you choose to have the MSDN documentation locally on your machine.

Try it out!

  • Open Visual Studio
  • Click on the Help menu
  • Select How Do I
  • Let the help load
  • Select the MSDN Library stuff
  • There should be plenty of info there on C#

Read some tutorials!

  • MSDN is likely your best bet
  • If you know any good tutorials for C#, post them here


  • Tell everyone about your findings
  • Put some thoughts on the forum
  • Send out some E-Mails
  • Ask questions
