Visual Basic Fundamentals for Absolute Beginners: (04) Dissecting the First Visual Basic Program You Created
Description
This lesson picks up from the previous one by discussing at length each action and line of code you wrote. It discusses the relationship between the Visual Basic code you write, the Visual Basic compiler, the .NET Framework and more. The lesson discusses the concept of code blocks at a high level explaining how methods, classes and namespaces are related. Finally, the lesson shows you where your project files are stored and the location of your code after it is compiled by the Visual Studio IDE and the different types of compilation (i.e., debug versus release).
