Which to use VB.NET or C#?

Hi all,

I'm planning on developing an ASP.NET web site. I know both VB.NET and C#
but am unsure on which would be more useful to develop an ASP.NET site with?
Also I maybe looking to become a web developer in the future so it would help
if I use the langauge that most companies use to develop their ASP.NET site?

Many thanks,
Jon.

Nice way to start a flame war.

It doesn't matter. You can achieve teh same greatness and horor in either
language. I might guess that C# is a more popular for employers, but if you
really do know both as you say, keep ur skills in both updated 'cuz you
never know.

It's entirely based on preference, some people prefer VB, some prefer C#.

It's that simple, also because the main learning curve is the Framework
itself, once you pick up one language, you will pick up the other very
quickly, it's mostly syntactical.

if you know both syntaxes and you know the framework and the asp.net then
you should have no problem working with both c#.net and vb.net

In your case, I would recommend VB.Net.

I have worked with a ton of developers for big companies during the history
of ASP.NET and the majority of them are using C#.

if you are capable, and know hown to code by hand, then VB.net .

If you are still dependent on Visual Studio, then use C#

C# can be written using Windows.NotePad and or Unix/Linux.vi editors. You do
not need to use VS.Net to code c# programs. These text editors train your
brain to be a very c-sharper !

If you plan to stick primarily with ASP.NET development then I'd have to
give the edge to VB.NET.
But keep your skills up to date with C# as much as you can just to hedge
your bets.

"the c++ standard library, tutorial and reference" book, it says: ++i is faster than i++. the latter involves a temporary object because it must return the old value/object of i. for this reason, it's generally better to use ++i. but, I think, even ++i still has to return a temporary object that is with new value inside. So, both i++ and ++i have to return a temporary object. Then, what's the speed difference between i++ and ++i.
