Mono tutorials for
know-nothings like myself
For years I have been in the non-enviable position that I
tried to understand how to use an API but never found the
documentation sufficient. I learn better from examples.
However, for some reason most tutorials on the Web are very
complicated. Instead of demonstrating how to use a specific API they
always go for complicated combinations and/or use the API for a
completely unnecessary (for understanding the API) task. The authors
are always very smart and don't understand why the rest of us don't
So I decided to write tutorials based on my trial and error
sessions. I left out the actual trials and errors and present the
tutorials in the form in which I would have liked to find them,
written for know-nothings like myself, constantly pointing out the

if a tutorial is not simple enough (or if you want to propose
subjects for future tutorials*).

write simple tutorials.
"How does this control work?" is fine. But anything that contains
more than one item of interest is off-topic here. I.e. I will try
to figure out and explain how a table view control works but I
won't at the same time connect a database to it (assuming that is
what one usually does with those things). If you are looking for
real help with C#, .NET or Mono, don't come here, go to Stackoverflow.
