Hydros's Programming tutorial for a 13 year old

Well, this is my first time posting a tutorial which I have actually tried in making. I kinda felt bad for the people who are missing out on programming because they htink it is hard. Well, I finally devised the ultimate tutorial which a 13 year old should easily be able to understand if he puts his/her mind into it. I posted pics for EVERY STEP along he way so you can walk through it. Simply open the zip and there are three directories


IMAGES - has all the images to the tutorial (not all tutes have images...don't be babies)

TUTE - a tute in .doc format

SOURCE - whatever program we made that day, I posted a source code area to post up source for it.


-Enjoy and I hope people learn a few things from it (even though it is quite basic)


NUMBER OF TUTES MADE SO FAR: 4

C# TUTORIALS:

Tutorial 1: We install visual studio 2010 express edition c# and we make a sooped up version of the boring helloworld app. Maybe even a "pull my finger" app can be developed with the limited knoledge learned from this tute.


Tutorial 2: We make a continuation of helloworld with variables so the user types in a name and the program will say "hello..." + name

Tutorial 3: We make a simple calculator using functions for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing (kinda complicated but still very easy). - With pictures in the PDF

Tutorial 4: We make a simple program which uses a loop to display "hello" the number of times the user tells it to.

-If you find problems with ANYTHING, please feel free to post in the comments section below and I will do my best to reply within a day to all questions.


If you like my work: please feel free to spread it with my credit + donation link is on my sig (cough...cough)

rkrishnan2012: I commend your efforts so much! When I came to this website, originally, I had such a hard time getting into developing. I think it is truly a great thing you are doing by taking your time to create these tutorials and upload them to the public! I applaud you

hey...no problem guys. I really like to have people understand the deep meaning in c# programming. Anyway, this was simple code and in the next tutorial, I will be going over a little more tougher thing (still very very easily put for a 13 year old....)

Tutorial 2:
some of the other common controls (like radio buttons and checkboxes) & some "if" statements

good question...for changing the property of something, you write the name of the item...followed by a dot...and intellisense will bring up a list of properties you can change. In the next tute, we will go over labels...so that will include changing properties (you are in the right track, we will do more of this in the next tute).

Also, you may post code here if you want to...just zip it up as a visual studio solution

Hmm, I have read some books to learn coding, specifically C#, and the basics are really easy - the difficult things are the APIs you need to learn to actually make your app do something useful. I just never got beyond that, but maybe I'll give it another try sometime. If you have some tips they'd be appreciated .
