  Old  Visual Basic Help

So preparing for my Computing course next year I though it'd be a good idea to read up and do some vb to get into practice, as this is the main language we will use although god knows why.

I was wondering if anyone knew of a good place to start or of any free PDF's to get me started.

I think I'm probably doing the same course as you next year - BTEC IT-Practitioners (Software Engineering)?. Luckily I've got a good background in programming, and I'm currently doing ASP.NET 2.0 is VB.

VB syntax doesn't have any curly braces and hardly any brackets, it's really easy. It's just stuff on new lines and such. You'll get use to it, and love it, really quickly.

You can download a free copy of VS for VB from Microsoft and start there. Look at the samples and read the docs. Create something simple that does something you want. Once you do that, you'll find that the basics are pretty ... well... basic, but the advanced stuff requires some grounding in object-oriented architecture.

  Old  Platform problems

I have been on the Higher National Diploma in general computing (degree/btec) They prefer to code in the visual basic 6.0 format & please note there is coding problems between older to newer versions of visual basic 6+. You can download enterprise 2005 visual basic but if your using visual basic 6 it will be very different (am certain it will be on the visual basic six platform)

-------------------------------------------------------

If you would like to see any of my free open source programmes just email me and ill send you some.

Regards The VBGURU

You will love VB man! I can do pretty much anything with it. It may not be as fast as lower level languages, but hey it takes no time to gather the code you need if you use the msdn and google as your primary learning tools. VBforums.com is a great resource, and there's plenty of other sites like that that have helpful people who know a tremendous amount about the language.

Good luck man!

Jonathan
