Alot of you may know me on the bnet world i'm Troop I was interested in programming awhile back but never got into it. Now i'm on my holidays ( 3months) I'm not abit more dedicated and have heaps of time on my hands to start. I'm seriously wanting to learn Visual basic's because its so Noob friendly.
If there's anyone out there who is willing to teach or instruct me in the way's of VB.6 I would be much greatfull. This is asking alot of peoples time i guess hopefully it would be a good experiance for me and you.

If you are willing to help me start contact me on the following:

AIM :   lx Troop xl
MSN :   zac_blythman@hotmail.com
EMAIL :   admin@zeropulse.net

Thanks

First of all, don't ever EVER EVER call it Visual Basics!

Second, VB is a good language to start with, but don't get stuck in the rut.  VB is weak and powerless, and code is hard to expand and maintain, and it encourages shitty coding habits.  Move on to C or Java or C# or ANYTHING before too long.

Where have you been?  Java is the highest demand commercial language by far!

I see very little written in C/C++ for commercial applications now.  The only time I see C/C++ used now is in open source software, but even a lot of that is moving to Java.

that's because nobody in India knows C/++, where they export all their labor!

quick may know VB well, but not i. i wouldn't be much of a teacher, and iago would NEVER go on Windows to program in *shudder* Visual Basic.

Troop, there's a thing called the EDIT button, it's fastenating really...You forget to say something in your post...You click it, and POOF! You can edit your post like magic! Also, Quik and Quick are two different people. If you want Quick, go to Op [] @USEast.
