The site contains articles, eBooks, samples and links to other kid-friendly resources.

Can use the free Visual Studio Express versions for most of these samples.  

Here’s a few of the main “articles” :

  • C# For Sharp Kids: This is an e-book that will have you coding C# programs in no time.  The book contains cartoons and easy-to-follow code samples to guide you through creating your own programs.
  • VB For Very Bright Kids: Are you more Visual Basic-ly inclined? This e-book contains easy-to-follow examples and explanations in the Visual Basic programming language.
  • CurliQue Studios: Here’s a way to learn the basics of Web Development with ASP .NET as part of a web design team for your virtual client; who just happens to be a rock band.  This course includes Teacher materials, Student lessons and quizzes.
  • Creating your First Website using HTML: Follow along with the Microsoft DigiGirlz Tech Camp presentation to learn how to use HTML to create your own website.

And there’s a training plan / development tracker – at My Learning PathThis contains many “tiers” of lessons (with videos), and has a Web track and Windows track – well worth a look – over 50 lessons from this site alone.

Might have to print off the first C# eBook, and see how it goes as a bedtime book. 

C# – Cameron# ??     Let’s hope that Liam isn’t a Linux guy !!!?!   (L# ?)
