If you want to know how to develop software using C# and you have little to no experience programming you've come to the right place. This is an introductory lesson to C# and .NET programming that is the first in a series that will show you how to use these dynamic cross-platform development tools.

In this lesson, we set the stage in two ways. First, you get an overview of the basic elements of computer programming and fundamental issues that face software development, and how .NET addresses those issues. Secondly, we set up our software development tools on Windows and a non-Windows platform. To test our development environments we create and run a simple C# .NET program.
