Learn Visual Basic 6.0 is a self-paced course. The suggested approach is to do one class a week for ten weeks. Each week’s class should require about 4 to 8 hours of your time to grasp the concepts completely. Prior to doing a particular week’s work, open the class notes file for that week and print it out. Then, work through the notes at your own pace. Try to do each example as they are encountered in the notes. If you need any help, all solved examples are included in the VB Code folder.
These notes were developed for the course, “Learn Visual Basic 6.0” They are not intended to be a complete reference to Visual Basic. Consult the Microsoft Visual Basic Programmer’s Guide and Microsoft Visual Basic Language Reference Manual for detailed reference information. The notes refer to several software and hardware products by their trade names. These references are for informational purposes only and all trademarks are the property of their respective companies.

The latest jargon in the digital world, "cloud computing" leaves many small-business owners scratching their heads. At its simplest, cloud computing enables businesses to do away with servers and much of their other IT hardware by running their software online. Web-based email programs like Yahoo or Hotmail are examples of cloud-based applications; Microsoft is making its entire Office suite available free in the cloud; Google and others also have productivity suites in the cloud.
Visual Basic 2005 (VB 2005) is relatively easy to learn for anyone familiar with another
object-oriented language. Even someone familiar with Visual Basic 6.0, who is looking for
an object-oriented language, will find VB 2005 easy to pick up. However, though VB 2005,
coupled with .NET, provides a quick path for creating simple applications, you still must know
a wealth of information and understand how to use it correctly in order to produce sophisticated,
robust, fault-tolerant applications.
