In this VB.NET tutorial, we will learn how to program using VB.NET programming language from very basic (sketch) to advanced level. This course has been designed for absolute beginners and self-learners who want to learn, the most used, common syntax, code implementation using VB.NET programming language.
Although this course has been designed for beginners, VB.NET most likely based on the BASIC and Visual Basic Programming language. So if you have pre-concept on those languages then it will be very easy to figure out VB.NET programming. If you have no concept, then you can also continue learning VB.NET programming.
Or you may learn BASIC and Visual Basic programming from our Tutorials library. Check out:
- Visual Basic Programming documentation here
- BASIC programming documentation here.
So What is VB.NET?
VB.NET is a modern object-oriented programming language designed and developed by Microsoft Corporation. VB.NET stands for “Visual Basic .NET“, the main dependencies of this language is, it requires Microsoft .NET framework to run even a single line of VB.NET code. As most similarly Java runs on JVM (Java Virtual Machine). But it is a cross-platform language. Because VB.NET not only runs on Windows but also runs on Linux or MacOS.
VB.NET can be used interactively to build web, mobile, and desktop applications built on the .NET framework. Its fully object-oriented programming paradigm let’s allow you to write from very simplest object to very complex one. Because everything in VB.NET treats as an object. And it also supports full-featured OPP’s programming. Features like polymorphism, encapsulation, abstraction, and inheritance are very common in use in VB.NET.
Programmer-friendly VB.NET Features
- VB.NET is a modern, high-level language that made the language easy to learn.
- Its simple yet powerful syntax let’s allow you to create cross-platform web services, desktop, and mobile applications.
- It supports Automatic Garbage Collection that really made this language programmer-friendly.
- As VB.NET is part of the .NET framework, it can access all the .NET framework’s library. It allows you the maximum possibilities to develop creative applications.
- VB.NET is also a structured language. It makes this language novice-friendly also.
What is next?
In the next subsequent chapters, we will start learning VB.NET programming from very basic to advanced. We will discuss the most common and basic syntax, data types, loops, etc. We will also learn code implementation, real-world uses of VB.NET, application development from the sketch using VB.NET, etc. Let’s get started!
