Hello ppl,
I'm totally new to C#, i want to begin implementing programs in C#,.but right now i checked for Visual Studio.NET and its not there in my pc.
Is there any other IDE or sth where we can impliment C#?
For ex. in case of C we can impliment it in different IDEs like Turbo C, Borland..
Microsoft Visual C++...
Which is the most recommended stuff for C# to get going?

Hello Parul,
You want to develop dot net applications .. Welcome to Microsoft !!
Under the umbrella of dot net will be capable of implementing with many languages one of them c#, you can use Microsoft IDE Visual Studio, or you can use an editor to type your code then compile it using the SDK and sure in the editor you'll have no intellisense.

In VS you'll have many tools, I prefer Class Diagram Designer, so don't look away ! and as you are new -like me- you don't have to.

Well, if you haven't got Visual Studio .NET already and you're just starting out, I'd recommend downloading the Express editions. They're free and suprisingly complete versions of the full edition. You don't get some of the more advanced bells and whistles but you won't need them at your stage.

C# Express Edition

There are also some open-source offerings out there:

Thats not a link to download its a link to the webpage talking about C# express. Go there and then download.

You can use the Web Install or download the whole DVD and install it that way.

Yes, the 2mb download is just the initial download/installer application. This is the way the express edtion installs work.

Download and run it and a little application will pop-up that determines the components you need and then downloads/installs them for you.

It's called an online installer. A short initial download, and then the installer app will download the rest of the data for installation.

EDIT: However, if you prefer to download it all first, there is a link at the bottom to download a DVD ISO file that contains all the Express edition products.

Visual C# Express is the very best way to get into C# programming for free.
