hi everyone...
i have to begin a project in vb in a week...
i have no experience with vb yet...i was just wondering should i start studying vb now or vb.net ?
how similar or different are they ?
because we'll be migrating to vb.net soon....

commented: VB for worms... :) +0

so if i go in for vb.net.....
i can still do a vb project without much of a problem ?
right ?

can ya give me an insight about what's
vb.net and what's C# and asp.net
and how are they related ?

No I can't. They aren't related, other than being .net. AFAIK asp.net is used to build web servers, the other two are used to build application programs.

i choose....

ASP.NET is a technology for dynamic web pages (similar to PHP etc...)
The actual ASP.NET code can be in either a VB.NET or a C# like syntax.

C# and VB.NET are mainly used for desktop apps though. VB.NET is very similar to vb6, whereas C# is more like Java in terms of syntax. In the end though, they all produce similar end products.

And learn VB.NET, VB6 is dead.

so what that means is
i can either go in for C#.net or vb.net

Yes but seeing as you have to do a vb project, it would probably be beneficial to learn vb.net..

>And learn VB.NET, VB6 is dead.
VB6 is dead like COBOL is dead. It's not the latest and greatest, but you can make a damn good living with it. ;)
