What do I need to get started?

P: n/a
Folks,

I'm old a programming and new at VB. What do I need to get started? I've ordered some books, but as far as tools go when the books arrive. If I've got a standard MS2000 install, do I have enough to write code?

What tools are recommended to make programming easier?

Any help, thanks.

What's MS2000?

Do you want to develop using VB Classic (version 6.0) or VB.NET?

Hi Dave,

Have a look at visual.studio.net or if you only want to do VB VB.net at the
Microsoft site.

Although you can also do it withouth those tools for webdevelopment, but
that is the hard way and surely not what I recomended.

I hope this helps,

Thanks.

O.K. I'm downloading the VB .Net resource kit. That will get me started, correct? I assume the studio is an interegrated development environment.

What is the difference between standard VB and VB .Net? What is .Net?

Might I suggest you check the Microsoft site to begin with and some of the
VB.Net-specific websites around?

The definition of "What is .Net" and even the concept of what are "the
differences" is completely open-ended. One may as well ask "What is
Tolstoy's _War and Peace_ about" expecting a paragraph or two to adequately
describe it.

It will mean different things to you depending upon what you do or intend to
do with it. It could even be completely meaningless and of little interest
to you but reading (at least) some of the documentation will give you a
better understanding.

Hi Dave,

This link I gave is not the resource kit, this is the Standard Development
Kit from Net 1.1.

A lot of web things and so for learning.

VB.net and VB are almost totaly different.
But there are also much things that are equal.

Let say in natural languages
VB and VB.net are equal as French, Italian and English
While you also can say
VB.net, C# and J# are equal as
German, Danish, Dutch and English

But German and French are totaly different.

I hope this make sence for you?
