Okay, this is a bit of a newbie question.
Is it okay if I jump directly to C# programming?
I have stopped coding for almost 4 years now and I'm already 28 years old.
Also, I have experiences on C++.
 
Thanks!

this is not proper question but i will suggest you go with C#..
because your background is C++ so the C# syntax is litil bits simmilar to C++ so you can eaisly understand..

Jump to C#.
 
It you come from a C++, then try to learn about the .NET framework.
Keep an open mind and try not to rewrite the wheel. A lot of things can be accomplished easier by the framework and libraries in it.
 
Other that reading a book, I recommend that you write an app or library to solve a problem. That will force you to google and learn and, if you are looking for a job, you will have something to show.
If it's original and polished, you can post it in codeproject as an article.

You have my full permission.
 
If you mean that you are a C++ programmer, and you want to leap straight into C# without any training, then it's probably not a brilliant move - the two languages look very similar, but there are significant differences, and without knowing a fair amount of the .NET framework you would be wasting your time re-inventing the wheel.
 
I would suggest that you get a book on C# (Addison Wesley and Wrox do some good ones) and read it through, doing most if not all of the exercises. It shouldn't be too difficult to pick up C#, but there is a heck of a lot in .NET to learn!

Absolutely 'Yes'.
As far as you can pick up the new language you can switch to any language. And as log as your logic is good, the figures like '28' doesn't matter in coding.

I know this is not a proper question but the replies are overwhelming. There is a big space to dive into between C++ to C# and that is .Net. Thanks all!
