I started learning Visual Basic 6 a few years ago and now I am learning visual basic .net. I am particularly interested in windows forms and windows presentation foundation. I hope to pass the MCTS track for .net 3.5 and I'm preparing for it.

Hi, I'm Todd. I've been programming in vb.net for about 6 months. It's my first programming language. It has been really useful and has taught me the basics of programming. It's my language of choice; even if I'm programming C++ I think in vb.net. I am currently a student in NZ.

Hey everyone, Patrick here.

I've been working with VB.NET for about two and a half years now, and I've gained quite a bit of knowledge about it.

I'm currently working on two large projects, both of which are commercial. The first is a scheduling application for small and medium businesses to manage (and schedule, of course) their staff. It consists of two VB.NET applications and a third ASP.NET web application. My second project is a single desktop application for teachers and schools to manage their testing more efficiently - I can't and won't say more, sorry.

I've received great help here already, and when I have the time I plan on helping out around here as well, but with these two projects I've been busy, busy, busy.

Hello!

My name is Jeremy, I am 24 years old. I started out programming in High School with VB5 and fell in love with it. Back then I wrote extremely simple applications that would probably have absolutely no use in the real world. :) But they were fun to develop in my spare time.

I went to college, and obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Management Information Systems, and a BBA. I worked as an in-store Computer Technician for the Geek Squad for 2 years, and then in December of '08 I was hired by a Computer Consulting Firm as their primary VBA, VB, and VB.NET developer. We're a fairly small office, we only have one other programmer, and he happens to be the VP of the company. So 95% of the programming is done by me. :D

I've developed very simple applications that just go to a text file and read a line, all the way up to data manipulation in the tens of thousands of records. I considered myself a pretty decent programmer in college, with the ability to figure things out quickly. But since I've been on the job I've already learned 10 times the amount of what I knew then.

And if anybody thinks you can learn programming by taking a class you're foolish. :D You can teach logic, but that's about it. It's just like speaking a new language, you have to speak it to learn it.

I've made some programs for personal use as well. I wrote a small application to calculate our Softball Teams stats which has came in very handy. And if there are any World of Warcraft fans out there, I wrote a program to manage our Guilds DKP.

I <3 Programming!

Hi,

I have been using vb.net for about 8 years. I first started using javascript about a year ago and it made me want to do more programming but with actual applications. I am currently only doing simple things with vb - just finished a timer app with alarm, stopwatch, countdown timer etc and have made a converter for temperature, length, volume, area etc. My main aim is to make games so I will be studying Java next year and C# in my spare time. Will also learn C++ at some time too

I've been using VB.NET now for 2-3 years. I only really have one 'commercial' program I created, but that is being used by a university here in the UK to capture signatures from a signature pad. Currently, I'm working on version 3 of this little application to make it use a better type of signature pad, and maybe even (if I get the SDK any time soon), a fingerprint scanner too :)

As a systems admin for a large BPO I've been using my spare time to write VB.Net applications that do everything from simply parse text files to excel, pull data from FTP sites and push it to SQL Servers, provide fast and effective reporting services, custom server based chat applications, and a bunch of other small gadgets for whatever need we had at the time. I have about 2 years experince with VB.net and T-SQL. I've also done abit with C#, C++,Boo,Python and Java.

I've used VB.NET off and on for about a year now, but I carried over some VB 6 knowledge I had from a class, and that helped me get started on it. I was a bit confused with all of the differences, but got it worked out fairly quickly and cleanly. :)

I had to quick learn VB.NET and ADO for a job I landed. It was pretty fun and I found out that for developing quick windows apps, vb.net is really quite nice. I had used VB in the past, but it wasn't quite as good, imho, as the .NET form. I'm glad they fixed it up.
