As part of the preparation for next session we've got all the C# books printed and ready to go. Everyone on our first year course will get a copy of this famous tome, and anyone who has been in touch with us recently for a free copy should get one too. If you've asked us for one and not received it, feel free to get in touch with your address and we'll see if we can send you one.
If you are into programming (and who isn't) you might be interested in work by Rob Miles on a new programming book for Microsoft Press. This is intended to teach programming through the medium of the XNA game development framework. It means that you can learn C# whilst writing fun games for your Xbox 360. You can find out more here.
