I've been in computers for some time as well. I learned to code on a Dec Vax system. Back then I coded in Basic, Cobol, some Assembly and a little Pascal. I am trying to make the transition from these procedural languages into the Object oriented, event driven, world of windows and the internet. I was wondering what helped you the most moving from the procedural to Visual Studio. I still have problems with the coding with dot notation. I also struggle with the idea of objects and inheritance. I also struggle with the role that framework plays in a visual studio application. Do you have any suggestions that may help me make the transistion?
