  1. I just finished your Introduction to Windows Forms course on Pluralsight, it was well presented and is my best so far. The presentation is fantastic and I wish you release a follow-up to the course for advanced users. Please can you give me entry point to SharePoint? I noticed most of your courses are on SharePoint and I want to benefit from your great teaching talent. I want to also plead with to consider presenting a course on a Real life Apps fro Start to Finish in ASP.NET/Windows Forms. I know it will require a great effort, but know that to many of us beginners, you are the greatest teacher we have. Thanks

  2. Hello sir ! I just finished your Introduction to Windows Forms course on Pluralsight, i need a program to teach in c# because i don’t know vb so called.

    • This is part of an answer I give from the discussion board for the course, “The downloadable sample code does have solutions in C# but to record and edit all of the demos in both Visual Basic and C# would be too costly for the benefit it would provide. For most of the demos the code is a direct translation from one language to the other. There are many tools out there that can help you with this translation, my favorites are Instant C# and Instant VB by Tangible Software (http://www.tangiblesoftwaresolutions.com/). Finally I ask you to consider the Visual Basic developers using [Pluralsight], most of the .NET code shown is C# so they face the issue you are currently facing far more often than you do. I think it’s only fair that some of the code in the library is shown in Visual Basic.”
