Efficiency of Dot Net

P: n/a
This is probably beating a dead horse, but...

It used to be that I could code a simple application in a few minutes to a
few hours using any number of older languages... VB6, etc. Now, with dot
net, it seems that it takes about two hours of research just to figure out
how to add two numbers together, and once the research is done and the code
written, the solution is so ridiculously über-complex that I couldn't
possibly remember it to apply it again. Does anyone else seem to have this
trouble, or is it just me?

Just you :P

Just like any development language, it takes time to learn. Once you learn
the ropes, you can write a simple application in a few minutes with any .Net
language...

Please forgive me for ranting. It's very frustrating, but I shouldn't have
vented all that here!

Hi Peter,

I'm sure it's not just you but personally I don't think it's too complex!
BUT, on the other hand I guess it depends on the complexity of the
problem/application you are trying to solve/create.

In the words of Peter Gabriel & Kate Bush, 'Don't give up!'

All the best,

Phil
