QuestionSo my mom's started programming... Pin

She's had some exposure to (very wrong) Visual Basic.NET WinForms and SQL Server in the past and even wrote some of it.
The kind that does On Error Resume Next, Go To, had lots of empty Catch-blocks (in the deepest nested functions, so you'd never know when something failed), had 5000-line WinForms with no separation of concerns or code re-use whatsoever... You get the idea.
Luckily, that's a long time ago and she forgot most of it Wink | ;)
I told her to start with the basics of C# so she can learn the syntax and the framework.
She's now following some online course, which teaches her to add integers, do string manipulation, etc.
I don't have the link, but I've seen it and it's pretty nice, with assignments that she needs to finish, and even some tips on how to use Visual Studio.
She's making good progress.

She wants to work with databases, learn about ASP.NET Razor Pages and create a web application.
Any tips on where to go next?
Online tutorials and books would be great, she needs things explained in an orderly manner.
