Welcome to VisualBasicTutorial.NET, the complete Visual Basic Tutorial for the absolute beginner to learn how to program. Do you want to teach yourself how to code but don’t know where to start? Does it all seem too daunting and confusing? I’ll never forget the light bulb moment when I “got” programming. It really was a life changing moment – I knew how to code! This site will help expedite that light bulb moment in a series of simple tutorials written in plain English with absolutely no jargon.
I have been a software developer for over 20 years and it’s been a blast. Unfortunately however, the teaching materials for new programmers have steadily declined. It’s almost as if we programmers are trying to make the subject less and less accessible for the new guys. I can’t imagine how hard it is today – I wouldn’t know where to start! That’s what inspired me to write this, a simple, interactive set of tutorials for you to teach yourself how to program. You might have the next million dollar idea but don’t know how to get going. You may be hoping for a career change and wish to take advantage of the boom in demand for skilled programmers. You may already be a developer but want to learn Visual Basic. Or, you may just be interested to know what the heck programming is. If any of the above applies to you then read on, I wrote these tutorials for you.
Since I developed this site I’ve been asked why I chose Visual Basic. Well, it’s a language that I love, it’s a language that remains extremely popular and it’s a language that is extremely simple to read, with no needless jargon. Much like these Visual Basic tutorials.
