@Paul1967: This is for "absolute beginners". I'm sure there's content on Channel9, Windows Dev Center or Microsoft Virtual Academy that discusses the content you're interested in. Also, if you let me know specifically what type of content you're interested in, I might be able to find it for you -- it might be here, just later in the series when we build complete apps together.
@Rodz: I do answer that at the very end of this series, but in a nut shell, check out the book by Microsoft Press, C# Step by Step by author Sharp.
@Austin: C# is a solid path to go down. I know of people who have watch my videos on LearnVisualStudio.net for as little as 6 weeks and practiced hard and got a job. Your mileage may dramatically vary. But if you put in the time and effort you can greatly truncate the amount of time required to go from zero to employed.
@Kelton: You may want to read the text under the video ... you would see the following: "Download the source code for Creating Your First HTML5 Web Page" ... Ctrl + F to search in your web browser, then type in "download" to find the links on any given web page. That should help.
@Steve Weiser: The LANGUAGE itself is very very similar to BASIC on the Commodore Vic 20 / 64. However, I'm betting what you're struggling with is the .NET Framework. What if someone had written a massive amount of code to do lots of cool stuff on the Commodore 64, like display windows, communicate via the internet, etc. That's what the .NET Framework is. It is different from Visual Basic, although VB wouldn't be able to do anything meaningful if it were not for that framework. Is it convoluted? If you need a simple solution then you may wonder why all the complexity? However, generally speaking, complexity exists to provide a larger wealth of options / freedom. It's a trade-off. Each feature exists because *someone* *somewhere* needs it. But yes, it can be very confusing / difficult to get a toe-hold.
@Rodrus: WPF provides much more flexibility but with added complexity (see previous paragraph). If you're building something in-house for your own usage and you just want to get the darn thing done quickly, the Windows Forms is probably for you. If you are using this as a vehicle to learn and eventually get a job at another company and can take your time then I recommend WPF. Good luck!
