A group blog from members of the VB team
Today we revamped some of the Visual Basic Developer Center Learn pages with more content that allows you to pivot on more fine-grained topics and tasks related to Visual Basic programming. We’ve started with the Introductory Topics and Language Syntax pages. To get there, head to http://msdn.com/vbasic and then click the Learn tab. There you will see a set of general topic areas to explore.
If you select Introductory Topics or Language Syntax you will be taken to a new set of pages that lets you browse on more sub-topics and tasks. Select a topic from the list on the left and the content will change on the right. I’ve collected a good set of content from a variety of sources like the MSDN library, blogs, How Do I videos, and other learning sites. Hopefully this organization makes it easier for you to find what you need no matter what type of content you’re looking for be that a video, article, blog, webcast, etc. However, if you still like to see, say, all the videos or articles related to that section, you can select the icons on the right-rail.
I’ll be working on this type of structure for the rest of these pages and will release them as I finish each one. It takes a while to categorize all the content I want so I rather release them section by section – obviously you can do a ton of stuff with Visual Basic so these pages will be constantly updated with new topics.
Am I missing a topic you want to see? Please send me feedback by making a comment on my blog or send me an email.
Happy Learning! -Beth Massi, Visual Studio Community
2010 is the year when Microsoft Press will demonstrate whether VB.NET is an accepted language at Microsoft or not:
How many of the new VS.2010/.NET 4.0 books, about new .NET technologies, will contain both C# and VB.NET samples?
My guess: NONE! as in previous years.
In other words: it's nice to have "hello world" for VB.NET newbies in dozens of variations. Yet what the world needs are hard-core, bleeding-edge samples in VB.NET!
