What Can Visual Basic Development Do for My Business?
Visual Basic is a programming language that can be used for various Microsoft projects. It is considered easy to learn and use but is getting old, having been declared a legacy language in 2008. However, there are still lots of good and solid projects which use VB. Yet finding developers to maintain and update these is getting more and more difficult. If you do not have the ability just yet to replace or recreate such a project, or you like what you already have in place, then maintenance may be your only option. If you have Access databases or complex Excel spreadsheets it is quite possible there is some VB in there. It is in more places than you might think.
Is VB.Net and.NET the same?
VB.NET is simply Visual Basic using the .NET framework. .NET describes the general framework and can be written in a choice of languages and Visual Basic is just one.
Why is Visual Basic still used?
Visual Basic is a very easy language to learn, and yet very powerful at the same time. Currently this is still used to teach students programming as it has all the features of a modern programming language whilst still being easily readable by a novice.
