[c#] Advice for learning

I program in ColdFusion as a part of my job as a project manager and web developer. I would like to expand my skillset with .net. To that end, I intend to learn c#, but I would love to know any tips or secrets that will give me a leg up.

Any advice for learning it? Is there a particular text that is helpful? I have O'Reilly stuff on it, but wasn't sure if there was a sleeper text out there somewhere that was especially helpful but maybe not well known.

Thanks.

Get the O'Reilly books on C# and give yourself a project to do with it. The best way to learn any programming language is to give yourself tasks to do. Just reading the book won't help you much, because if you never use it, it won't sink it.

One of the tasks I did when I first started learning C# was I wrote an application to check a computer's registry for the Windows Update Group Policy registry keys and see if the Group Policy was set to point to our SUS server. If not, I'd fix it and submit the changes to the registry.

It seems a bit hard at first, but it turned out to be not that difficult, thanks to Visual Studio .NET's help.

Thanks, I think you're right. I just need to devise a project and get my hands dirty.
