    Question Java and Visual Basic - Help


    I'm a grade 11 student in Canada, and am looking for a good place to start learning either visual basic or java. Java shows up for me in first year university, but I have to learn VB later this year. I'd appreciate any directions to decent sites that explain how to use either language, or a place to get ahold of a copy of VB for non-commercial use.

    in this site you can learn vb

    i started my programming life with c++ and then vb6 and now planing to go back to vc++ and java

    vb is easy and by using it you will start hating hard programming like c++ and java

    but its good to start with it

    my suggestion is if you like to get deep into programming for the sake of learning progromming go for java or c++

    but if you want the easy programming and then you want to go to hard slowly slowly go for vb first

    this is what i know

    Thumbs up

    Hey Ammar,

    Didn't catch the site URL - first time I've posted something here so it's probably just that I missed it. Also, my first programming language was turing and right now I'm looking for something a little more dynamic and flexible. Which is better for that?

    Anyone remember BASICA on thier nice new tandy 1000s they got for Xmas in 1988? THOSE were the days, the days when you remember you were only 6 and could actually write a simple little program to move a stupid ASCII charactor 2 around a screen....God Bless those days!

    I'd definately recommend learning Java, especially over VB (I'm not sure why anyone even bothers with VB anymore)

    A great book is O'reilly and Associates Learning java, you should pick this up sometime ( is a good place to get it from)

    Also visit and take a look around there

    When you're done that, check out and you'll be on your way.

    Hope that helps
