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.
