    Microsoft used to have a lot of documentation for C# online. All you had to do was just do an internet search for a function call or a namespace and you would get their documentation. Does anyone know what happened to that? Now, when I do an internet search, all I get is something called "Learn". I don't need a tutorial - I need quick reference. Does anyone know where that reference still exists, if it exists at all? So far, I've been able to figure things out by trial and error, but sooner or later I'm going to need to look at reference, and I just don't have time to wade through twenty minutes of tutorial to get just that tiny little piece of information that I need.

    Thank you - that's helpful. Okay, so basically it IS their documentation, just horribly named and globbed in with the tutorials for some obscure, Microsoft-esque reason. Well, at least now I know where to eventually find what I need.

    For those looking for gory details about C# itself, you should have a look at the C# language reference. I've been reading it in my spare time (how exciting!).

    If you're super boring, you can browse the entire thing in a neatly organized list on the dotnet/csharpstandard repository. Now that's what I call gory detail!
