    Are the C# class videos available for a subscriber yet ?

    I understand there is a c# class going on currently and I heard that the videos might be made available to subscribers. Is this the case ? Also are they available after each session is held or will they all only be posted when class is fully completed ?

    They are made available shortly after each session. I believe the videos are generally available on the same day; I am not positive.

    Yes, just as long as you're a member sponsor, the videos are there for you to watch. However, IIRC, you actually have to be registered with the class to do any of the homework or get any certificates for the class, if I heard things correctly...

    Also aside from the C# videos each week from the 2 live classes you can learn quite a bit of C# from the XNA series available to MS. Even if you're not interested in the XNA portion the XNA 101 series focuses on mostly the C# language as well. Just a tidbit of info for non-members interested in a membership.

    Yup, In my case I have the XNA 101 series on DVD. I realise there will be a fair bit of crossover. But repitition won't hurt me at all, especially since it was a fair while back I went through the XNA 101 DVDs.

    This is so true

    Code:
    int cSharp = 101;
    
    if (isWontHurtMeAtAll)
    {
        // Rinse and Repeat
        cSharp++;
    }
    P.S. If you do get a membership to watch the C# live classes. You should also check out all of the Unity content as Unity is quite fun coding in and you can use C#. You mainly just have to worry about scripting gameplay and UI. I've done a lot of projects in C++/DirectX where I've had to code everything from the ground up and while rewarding to complete projects it's a lot of work and sometimes a pain in the ass. Which is why I love Unity I get to focus on the actual game code instead of having to build a engine for the game first.

    Yeah that is the plan. Unity seems pretty prefect for what I want to do. Last year I had been doing a bit of tinkering in Unity with the help of some of the free Unity 3dbuzz content. Wanting to get back into it.

    Not to mention that you also have the Nelson's Corner series once you've gotten really good with C#. Although it's recommended that you get through all the live class videos and the whole XNA 101 series before learning from Nelson's Corner videos. Just as a fair warning.
