I’m moving this back to planned. I want to do it, but clearly, my original promise fell through.

Like Gillard Robert I recommend to use this book:
Learning C# by programming games (Arjan Egges).
The book is actually written for the XNA framework but everything can made with the monogame framework too. I use Monogame framework and Visual Studio 2015 and it works fine. The XNA tutorials from this website work great with Monogame.
In the book I mentioned above you will be taught how to develop four different small and simple games step by step. It is very good for beginners. The complete games can be downloaded at the authors website! So you can explore a finished game. Also there are many projects in wich the game is not yet finished but in a certain state of development.
The tutorials from this website are very good to extend and intensify the topics of the book. Also you learn to program with c#. But for poeple who didnt program any time I think an additional book wich is only about learning programming in c# would be very helpful.
