I am from programming background which i studied 5yrs ago and i was not in touch till last week. My vision is to make this website more commercial .But i am just afraid, Is it hard to learn C# ?, even if a person is not from programming background. You can imagine that i am a new body in the world of programming. So is it easy to start C# without knowing any programming language .

hi there... Still depends on the web you wanna build.. there is no easy answer for what are you asking not knowing how big is the web or how complex is...

there is a lot of material on the web that will let you build a big website, but not knowing how "big" you need it will not let us know how hard it will be...

You said you will build a comercial website. Will you sell things? will you have a cart on it? will you proccess payment? a external site will process payments? If I don't recall bad, Imar has a full aplication for a shopping cart in one of his books (sorry If it not Imar, but I saw one in a book).
Also, remember 2 things, We are here to help, not to solve your problem, and maybe Doug was sleeping or without time to answer you? ;)

Gonzalo is quite right, I live in the United States and when you posted your query it was almost 3am I was definately sleeping!

I don't know that I can give you a good answer on whether or not C# is hard to learn because I think it is a relative question. Relative to an individual and their ability to grasp concepts as they are presented to them.

I was originally a Classic ASP developer (VBScript) and when .NET was released I began to learn VB.NET it wasn't until AFTER i had grasped VB.NET that I started writing my applications in C#. Was it hard? No, not really, because the only difference in the language really was the syntax and that is easy enough to understand.

In any event, I think that being able to deploy a commerical application in 2 months (without realizing the scope) and not having any prior experience in Web Development or .NET is extremely daunting. Personally, when I first learned Classic ASP it took me about 3 months to get comfortable with how it worked, how things were done, how to read (adn decypher for that matter) the interpeter errors etc.

If you can provide an exact scope of what you want to do we might be able to elaborate a bit better but I still think its a challenging time line.

Thanks for all of you , Well i do understand that its tough job to complete this project as i am very new to it, but its not impossible . One more Question .. Some people say i can use dreamweaver and build the website too, but i wanted to add cart , bill transactions , selling and purchase etc. as you also said in the last reply. Now to be very honest to you i am very scared whether i will make the website or not .one more thing i have decided to learn asp.net with C# through some institute. I will take help of my trainer to help me out on this project.Do you think this will solve my problem and i will be ready with my website.


           I do understand that you people are here to give suggestions not to solve our problems. I am very thankful to you ....

Imar is the Dreamweaver guy here and I have never used it BUT it is my understanding that it is more a WYSIWYG editor and, while you can create ASP sites, it lacks the functionality of Visual Studio (or the express products) such as placing hooks and debugging code for example.

Where I work, our designer uses Dreamweaver to create mockups which he then gives to us (programmers) and we drop our controls into his design through Visual Studio to build the site.

In any event, this is all speculative. Would having a pro (or trainer) helping you increase your chances of getting the website up and running yes but things come up during the development of an application that can not be accounted for during intitial project conception.

So, yes, having a pro helping you increases your chances of getting your application out on time but, IMHO, i still think it is an agressive timeline if you are not working from a preexsisting code base.
