Visual Basic / Visual Studio Tutorials
Visual Basic is a programming language and environment developed by Microsoft. Based on the BASIC language, Visual Basic was one of the first products to provide a graphical programming environment (Visual Studio) and a paint metaphor for developing user interfaces. Our Visual Basic tutorial is filmed in Visual Basic / Visual Studio 2008. Instead of worrying about syntax details, the Visual Basic programmer can add a substantial amount of code simply by dragging and dropping controls,such as buttons and dialog boxes, and then defining their appearance and behavior. Although not a true object-oriented programming language in the strictest sense, Visual Basic nevertheless has an object-oriented philosophy. It is sometimes called an event-driven language because each object can react to different events such as a mouse click. Visual Basic is sometimes called a Rapid Application Development (RAD) system because it enables programmers to quickly build prototype applications. Our Visual Basic tutorial takes you from your first basic program to web applications and database applications.
