I want to teach myself Visual Basic, and need help on where to start. I'm a "hands-on" kind of person and can only learn by DOING. I can read and understand something, but only if it gets immediately put to use. Otherwise concepts sort of fall out of my brain and it's as if I haven't read anything at all. Where's a good place to start? How do I go from having a basic understanding of programming (I've dabbled a bit) to writing a functional bit of code that does "something", even if it's just blanking the screen and typing "Hello World".
