View Thread: Learning VB.NET
  • User profile image

    So, as some of you may know, I've been dealing with a (healthcare company of 1000 people in 3 states) for a month or two, getting lined up for a job as a Web Admin / IntraWeb Admin / PC Tech.  Unfortunately, the Web Admin / IntraWeb Admin who would be above me (but thankfully 1500-2000 miles away) is a VB coder; and from what I've heard, a shoddy one at that.  I'm a C# coder.

    I started programming in GWBasic back in the 80's, and moved up through QBasic and Pascal in school, finally settling on C# only recently.  I've also been learning ASP.NET 2.0, and the more of it I learn, the more I love .NET! </BackgroundInfo>

    My question to the more experienced folks here is, how hard is it for someone who knows C#, ASP.NET 2.0, and very old forms of BASIC to learn VB.NET? From what I'm hearing, I'll be hired tomorrow and starting Monday. If it's just different syntax and a few different namespaces I don't see a problem.
