    Does anyone know of a good website for non IDE developers transitioning to the .net IDE ? The code is not difficult for me to grasp, but the IDE can be a pain in the ass.

    The last IDE i programmed in was borland c++ 5.5 :o

    I will say this VB.net reminds me of old school COBOL code :wtc:

    Most people use C#. It takes C++ and makes it easier, instead of taking VB and making it harder.

    People choosing VB over C# makes me want to slap them!

    Your best bet would be to find VisualStudio tutorials to find out how to use projects and solutions, choose build configurations etc. There should be lots on MSDN.

    It's still the best language for a GUI-heavy app, in my opinion. But a lot of the stuff that VB6 used to make ridiculously easy has gotten somewhat harder, which means there really isn't a single good rapid-prototyping language left.

    When I'm making a high-resolution prototype, I don't need to optimize it, I need to make it work at all as quickly as possible so I waste as little time and money as possible on what might be a throwaway design. There's just nothing left that fills VB6's shoes in that regard. It's kind of a shame.

    I find vb.net is just as easy as vb6 to quickly get a concept out there. And I like how they took away a lot of the hacked-together feel that vb6 had. .Net is excellent.
