Visual Basic.NET


Home \ Work \ Visual Basic.Net

I wrote my first complete computer program in 1986. Since then I've programmed (or scripted) in Assembler, BASIC, C, C#, C++, COBOL, F#, HTML, Java, JavaScript, LOGO, Pascal, SQL, VBA and XAML. My last production commit was made in Groovy/Grails. I don't mind C#. Or Java. Yet my preference is VB.NET because

This list isn't complete but covers what I value most. There are also a metric ton of readability issues in Java and C# that VB.NET doesn't have (braces, == and =, ! instead of Not, seperate keywords for inheritance and interface implementation, and so on). I also concede that I learnt Pascal before learning C (and prefer Pascal to C). The fact that Pascal and VB.NET share syntactical smilarities (type declarations follow variable and function names, the Not keyword) is probably not an insignificant factor.

My all-time favourite language 😃
