If you are looking for the source code for Head First C# by Andrew Stellman and Jennifer Greene, please go to our GitHub repository:

At the time that CodePlex went read-only, we were still working on the 4th edition of Head First C#. This repository does not contain any code, graphics, or other materials for later editions of the book. Please go to the GitHub repository for that material.

As part of Microsoft's process decommissioning CodePlex, this page went read-only starting in late 2017. We have migrated the source code for Head First C# to GitHub. We decided to keep this read-only version of the CodePlex repository here so that old links to the code will continue to work.

Good luck with your C# learning!

Thank you,
Andrew Stellman and Jennifer Greene

About Head First C#, 3rd edition

Head First C#, 3rd Edition was published by O'Reilly in 2013. It is a complete learning experience for programming with C#, XAML, the .NET Framework, and Visual Studio. Built for your brain, this book keeps you engaged from the first chapter, where you’ll build a fully functional video game. After that, you’ll learn about classes and object-oriented programming, draw graphics and animation, query your data with LINQ, and serialize it to files. And you’ll do it all by building games, solving puzzles, and doing hands-on projects. By the time you’re done you’ll be a solid C# programmer, and you’ll have a great time along the way!
