The Future of Databases, Code, and the Web and what to start learning

Post icon  Posted 01 June 2009 - 02:19 PM

I am an Access power user, no code though.
I have an opportunity to start learning any code I want for advancement.
I do not know where to start: VB, VBA, VB.Net, Visual Studio...?
Please also include a consideration for the movement of desktop software to being web based, should web code be included in the process?

Thank for your expertise

I would suggest VB.net because it is the most advanced and up to date version of Visual Basic. It is also more powerful than versions before the addition of .Net.
Visual Studio is simply the IDE, or Integrated Development Environment, used to program any of Microsoft Programming languages (C#,VB,C++(although C++ isnt strictly microsofts language))
You can use VB.net for web development as well.

Hope that helps!

Yes, VB, in some incarnation is going to be around a while. I understand VB6 is no longer (or won't be soon enough) supported by MS. If for some reason you cannot acquire VB.Net but do have (as is my case) MS Office Suite then VBA is a good alternative. For small to medium projects VB of any variety offers a powerful and easy to learn programming tool. The syntax does vary some between each VB product but learn one and another is easy to pick up. Would be good to know SQL, the VB family will recognize and process SQL statements.

c# is also a good alternative...actually if i were you i would learn c#.
c# is something between c++ and java and also can be used in web development...just like vb.net
