C# is a Java-like programming language. It's pretty easy to learn. However, there are tricks to making it really work for you. Most of these involve understanding
the capabilities of the Libraries that come with C#, as well as the Visual Studio programming environment
Getting Microsoft Visual Studio and the MSDN Library
University of Calgary students can get a free copy of Microsoft Visual Studio.
If you have your own computer, we recommend that you do this as its often easier to develop on your own machine than on a university computer (which may restrict what you can do due to security issues).
- Go to https://msdn01.e-academy.com/ucalgary_cs/index.cfm?loc=login/login.

- Enter your full U Calgary preferred or cpsc email address as your username and then click on "Go Find It!"
- Once you are in, click the 'Softare link' to see what you can download.
