Visualizing .Net and the C# language

    One of the things I am very interested in is better and quicker ways to learn things. One of the best ways I have found is to visually break a subject down to its lowest parts and show the relationships between those parts. So what I have been doing as I try and learn C# and the .Net Framework is make a concept map as I go as a supplement to my notes. I would be interested in someone who knows C# to try the same thing and see what they come up with. I think this could be a valuable tool for developers trying to learn the language and how peices of the .NET Framework relate to one another. 


    I made my concept map with Cmap which can be found at http://cmap.ihmc.us/" target="_blank"> http://cmap.ihmc.us

    If I can figure out a way to I will post a picture of my concept map.

    I don't know if you have them already but you can get (download for free or buy) the entire Framework Class map from MS:

    That will atleast get you started in what it looks like you're trying to do.

    You have a very good idea of brain sharing.  Maybe a good start would be creating an iterinary so that C# developers could input in particular topics.

    Nice! I recall that the there was a poster of the compact framework in a recent issue of MSDN Magazine. That was a very good idea. If someone at MSDN magazine is reading this I would like to suggest that you include more posters in future issues!

    About pictures; just put them on a web server and drag them to the edit pane and they will be inlined (I think =)
