    Tell your.. UMMMM friend.. that VB.NET is not bad to get started with...

    Basic code.. UMMM console app... can't get more basic than that...

    I am sure there are others here who can guide you better... but as an intermediate to a novice here you go...

    Module Module1

    Sub Main()

    Console.WriteLine("simple app")

    End Sub

    End Module

    How's that for easy...

    What does this mean? Well you have a block of code called main... this main runs a command for the System.Console class (the system part is "hidden") then it tells that class to write a line of text saying "simple app"..

    Not bad for a simple app... Of course it only gets more and more complicated for there, but you can't get much simpler than that.. Smiley

    Hi loadsgood...

    i'm not saying isn't a good choice...but your friend might also want to give c# a go also: the framework and runtime are the same, so the choice is primarily one of which syntax she prefers...

    looks like a nice starting point if they want to give it a try 

    links to hello world etc here...
