I'm a new guy into this. Well I've heard about VB, VB.NET, VBscript, ASP.NET. Well the terms looks good but the real case here is that am a first time. I'm good in codes (PHP, JS, PY) and I want to learn about VB and its components and libraries. Any links, hints and head starts here would be appreciated. Thanks

    What did you know, they are all scripting languages. While VB is a programming language. Assuming here VB means, vb.net which is included in visual studio from Microsoft. See VB is not a free software and if you want to install it, you have to buy first. Or try with demo/trial version, but this is not so helpful. First you buy some books based on VB which can helpful for beginners like you, You can get help from net, but for solid knowledge/ base work, you must read some good books. There are several websites that offer free tutorial, you can navigate them and try to learn from there also. By the way, why are you keen to learn for VB, but not Java.

    If you want to play with VB or even c#, try downloading Visual Studio Express, it's free and will let get started.

    Subhendu Sen thanks, a friend was talking to me about it and it seemed a cool idea to jump in. About Java, well, it's a big language and lots of machines are running on it, but am yet to get convinced if I'll wanna try it. More advice please.

    Thanks for your reply. If you think this is big then yes this is big and to the some extent hard to learn. But basically java is free and you can get actual class idea from this language, that does not mean other languages does not have class conceptions. Java is based on C++ or rather say inherits from C++. You can install jdk and jre latest version on your system and can start writing codes on netbeans/eclipse. Which are known interfaces of java code writing. However you must know the procedure to open these interfaces (you can use any one) and start writing codes. Buy some books on java like beginners related or a book called 'Head First Java' by Kethy Sierra & Bert Bates which can help a lot. Please link here for more info, http://www.headfirstlabs.com/books/hfjava/

    If you are interested to learn c#/ vb.net you can try Microsoft visual studio web site.
