I bought Jerry Winters VB.Net book which Im going through now.  Using the reflector you guys talked about, I "cheat" when I have to, and convert VB code to see what Im doing wrong.  Basically I read a chapter and look at the VB code.  Then I try and re-write it in C# and test it.  If it fails badly, I open the CD and use reflector to convert it to C# so I can see where I went wrong.

The only problem is that you cannot build ObjectARX with that version.....  :-(

As far as I know nothing much has changed on the C++ front. From what I heard, MS is waiting for the new C++0x standard. I also heard that a new killer MFC is in the works.  :kewl:

Thanks Daniel.

But is not officially supported by the adesk guys.... as per Kean comment - Will see what they end up using for A2009 [to me they will keep using the arx's] or when they do the jump for a new Compiler as they did from VS2002  -> VS2005 and previously VS6

I think translating algorithms between different languages is a highly underrated and beneficial exercise; good on ya.

heh ! That's a great idea !
I'm trying to hit the keyboard a lot more too, rather than just reading.

Just in case you don't know .. On the Debug->Windows menu there is a command to open a Locals window ( or Ctrl+D,L ) .. very handy when stepping through code.

Yeah, we will just have to get Owen to include VS2008 in his VC Hook utility

Jon Skeet has blogged regarding the
VS2005 and VS2008 co-existence ...

I won't post his conclusions.
