    Hello everyone,

    I have recently dove into learning C# programming, specifically with Unity 5, and I am a bit stuck.

    I am trying to learn C# from the ground up by following this Microsoft training course:

    https://mva.microsoft.com/en-US/tra...absolute-beginners-8295?l=lQifIGYy_5004984382

    However, I am running a Mac OS X and I am not sure if the Virtual Studio Express is compatible with it. What would be a substite for such a program where I can simply practice coding C#?

    Thank you.

    Yeah VS requires Windows

    And if my memory serves me right it also requires a hell of a lot of disk space.

    Visual Studio Code is mostly just an editor. It isn't an IDE like Xcode or the full version of Visual Studio that runs on windows.

    You can run a VM as the previous poster suggested and run Visual Studio.

    Or you can try Xamarin http://xamarin.com/

    Keep in mind that Unity3D doesn't necessarily use the latest version of C# and uses an antiquated version of monodevelop. Your best bet for learning Unity and C# is to actually learn in Unity and do all the tutorials on their website and other tutorials online.
