This week I've been going though the web looking for some great VB community sites and influencers. I started out by looking through all the Visual Basic MVP profiles -- and although I know a lot of them already, there are a total of 183 profiles up there! I was digging into them at first just to get a list of MVP Blogs for the VB Community page but then realized that a lot of them have great websites and links to other community sites they enjoy like these, ww.vbcity.comwww.VBForums.com, www.codeguru.com. It's also been a lot of fun just looking at everyone's picture. Help me get to know you and send me your favorite sites :-)
Okay I just realized that I wasn't allowing anonymous comments. Doh! It should be fixed now, if not, click the email link on the sidebar and let me know.
I've heard such good things about you. Im looking forward to reading your posts on VB. Congrats on the new position. Would you believe Im not really a developer, Im actually a Quality Assurance Engineer, but I do use different programming languages in my day to day tasks, in the different tools that I use. I follow a lot of the MSFT bloggers also. Best of luck.
Nice to see www.vbcity.com up there in pole position, Beth :-}
There are several Moderators on the site who are VB MVPs - incuding djjeavons, newly awarded in April and the (g)host of VBCity himself, SergeB.
VBCity (and the sister site devCity.Net) have a lot of resources including forums, FAQs, Code Bank, Articles and even free online courses with one-to-one dialog and feedback between students and tutor.
Personally, the feature I'm most proud of are the two "Newbies" Forums - http://www.vbcity.com/forums/forum.asp?fid=41
where the ground rule is "There's no such thing as a dumb question". Anyone can enter a Newbies Forum secure in the knowledge that they won't be put down or see their newbie questions scoffed at - and the successful answer rate in these two forums runs in the high 90%s most of the time.
