Speaking of ducks... The Rubber Duck edition of the Yellow Book (That learning to program with c# book), a 2014 refresh, Kindle version and a new cover - C# Yellow Book


The C# Yellow Book is used by the Department of Computer Science in the University of Hull as the basis of the First Year programming course. You can download your own copy from here.

We give away a free printed copy to students when they arrive in the department, and we also give a copy away to anyone who comes to see us on an Open Day. This is the 2014 version of the book, the Rubber Duck edition.

The material in the Yellow Book is Copyright (c) Rob Miles and the University of Hull 2014. If you find any mistakes in the text (it has been known) then I would be most grateful if you could send me an email to so that I can put it right.


Kindle Version

There is now a Kindle version of the text available. You can find it here.


I directed a co-worker to Rob's site and this book today and noticed that there was very recent, days old, refresh and a very reasonable kindle version. How reasonable? $0.99! Yeah, the entire book for less than a buck. Now that's a deal! (Yes, I bought one and sent it too all my devices... ;)

Speak of Ducks, you ask? If you have to ask, you didn't get it... ;)
