Hello all,

I have been on the internet trying to learn as much as I can about Visual Basic and I found this website. With over a million members and helpful articles, I know I want to be a part of this community.

I am a IT consultant for small businesses in Louisiana while I work on my Chemical Engineering degree. This semester I enrolled into a Visual Basic class which requires me to use VB to solve real life problems. The main goal is to have a good knowledge of programming so that we can gain efficiency during unit operations that normal operators can't get. For example, a program that reads the outside temperature could account for outside temperature change and change certain settings in a unit operation to gain efficincy. This is something that humans just cannot do in a resonable time....

I was rambling, but I am glad to have found this site and I hope that I can grow within this community and become a better programmer.

Regards,

CW

I have been having troubles with VB, not sure if it related to windows 7. I installed it and can't do alot of things, mainly math. This has mean't that I am forced to be at school to work on my projects.

Thank you!! I just signed up on the dreamspark site. I had no idea that it was available. I can't wait to getb home and install visual studio 2012 or should I stick with Visual Basic Express? All i need is Visual Basic for now.

I didn't bother with the express versions so I can't comment on them. The last time I installed VS I used 2010 and I was/am very happy with it. As a student, you should take advantage of most of the software provided by dreamspark, I did.
