By learning C# instead I personally hate VB.NET but whatever.

I just googled VB.NET tutorial, plenty of results.
these 2 look particularly relevant:
http://forum.codecall.net/topic/7446...ced-tutorials/
http://www.tutorialspoint.com/vb.net...t_overview.htm

this site and msdn itself are also particularly good references although neither are tutorials:

Besides reading tutorials, best way to learn is probably by doing. I first learnt to program about 4 years ago while doing AS computer science, for that I had the benefit of an actual tutor but to this day I've actually kept the original worksheets we used. The worksheets I have were for python 3, but they are basically a few sheets of paper with some basic exercises on them, the exercises themselves aren't python specific. If I go to learn a new language or even just refresh my basic knowledge then I'll bust out the sheets and try a few of the exercises. None of them are particularly complicated but do cover file I/O, looping, conditionals etc. If you want them I can PM them to you (PDFs), and yes, I have done them in VB.NET before, although I no longer have any of my VB.NET code left on my machine, everything I wanted to keep I ported to C# about 2 years ago.

Yeah, I'd really appreciate it. I found a cool site that has some vb tuts, It's exciting to learn, but it's very intimidating. I'm really just procrastinating for no logical reason. Why study VB.net when you cool mess around w/ and android app, and recreate what you've created in vb.net for your phone.

Thanks so much.

Odd question, is an AS enough? Or does a BS help? or AS w/ microsoft certs?

if you want to email me... it's my username 123@gmail.com
