    I been programming in vb since vb3 so hit me up if you need any help. vb.net is easy to learn and yet very powerful because of the framework.

    @wintermute: All this coming from the guy who argued on my BST thread that VB .NET was an inferior language and not worth learning? Glad to see you finally changed your mind :biggthump.

    Anyway, I learnt VB6 on planet-source-code.com and their VB .NET section is just as good. So once you have the basics down that's probably the first place you should look to gain some applied knowledge.

    not a memory hog when coded properly.

    Remember its an object orientated language.

    When you are finished with something obj.dispose() it

    The other big mistake is building strings.

    txtSomething = txtSomething +" this text " + "and this text" is baaaaad as vb creates a memory space for a new string and another and another, till you have the new value.

    Then deletes the old ones.

    Use the stringbuilder object and there's none of that memory hoggary.

    Anyways off topic!

    Best place to learn, google.
    That said don't just dive in trying to learn everything. Set yourself a simple task.

    I can't do math for shit, but when I need to write an algorithm to calculate a players location distance and speed in a game I can do it...get what I mean?

    I can't learn something without having an end point, something tangible at the end that you can say yes thats what I wanted and I did it.

    Just my 5cents

    @loxy: Good example with the stringbuilder, too bad the coders who use VB are usually of the lazy kind :D.

    lol very true, but I won't diss VB, it's just as capable if used properly, though will never beat unmanaged apps.

    I didn't read through this whole thing but just to mention, a great website for web interaction videos, ajax.asp.net Yes, microsoft's own site has a bunch of starter videos for the no0bies. Also a great book that teaches good practice and gives you a big understand of the .net framwork & vb.net is VB.Net The Language . Hope This Helped :) I can't teach you everything but if you have patience and think logicly, you should have no problems.

    hours and hours of googling and picking through other examples ;) been programming since vb5, .net has alot to offer because of the framework, makes writing web interaction apps a snap.
