Free C#, .NET, and ASP.NET Videos and Tutorials for Beginners


Learn .NET videos

If you want to learn the basics of C#, .NET and ASP.NET these videos are a terrific introduction.

This series of videos on C#, ASP.NET or .NET has been created by Scott Hanselman. The videos are geared towards beginners and offer a self paced introduction to Microsoft's framework.

 "There's nearly a hundred short videos that will teach you topics like C# 101, .NET, making desktop apps, making ASP.NET web apps, learning containers and Dockers, or even starting with Machine Learning. There's a ton of great, slow-paced beginner videos. Most are less than 10 minutes long and all are organized into Playlists on YouTube".
They can also be viewed on Microsoft's Channel 9. If you don't have access to YouTube where you are, all these videos are also on Channel 9 *and* can be downloaded locally via RSS feed:

Scott recommends starting with these three series in this order - C#, .NET, then ASP.NET. You may not be familiar with Scott Hanselman but he's written code that you've probably used, is an author, a well known speaker and works for Microsoft. If you're interested in learning C#, ASP.NET or .NET for beginners, have a look.
If you're interested in monospaced fonts (useful for coding), Microsoft recently released a new monospaced font called Cascadia. (h/t ghacks)

I would like to be able to make an app for myself which displays daily pollen counts. For whatever reason, in my part of the country (Australia), there is not an app which shows this type of local information which is so important for us asthma and hayfever sufferers.

So my question would be is this where I would begin to learn how to make an app, as I have no idea what C#, ASP.NET or .NET actually are?


C# is a programming language, ASP.NET is a framework to produce web sites, applications and services. .NET is also a framework, all are created by Microsoft.
I'm not sure what would work the best to create the app you want. Maybe someone here would know.

Have you looked at Asthma Australia's pollen apps?

If you're in Canberra, this one is available: Canberra Pollen App

There are more apps here: The Best Allergy Apps of 2019

I track pollen in my area at They are global with many local sites. They are quite accurate in this area, and often list what is blooming in addition to type (trees, grass, weed) and how high the counts are.



Hi Rhiannon,

Thanks for the reply. I'm in Adelaide and currently, there is no local app, but according to Asthma Australia there soon will be one, which for me will be a blessing.

I have also d/l the app from Plume which seems to be okay.

I'm also a member of WU, which also has lots of useful info.


These look really good thanks.
Going to show them to my 16 yr old Daughter and see if she wants to do a few together.

You're welcome, I hope you enjoy them.

That's great Panzer, thanks!
