Visual Basic is the most widely used programming language for creating Windows applications. Why? Because it's easy to learn, and doesn't require you to memorize difficult commands. In this course, you'll learn how to write Windows applications and programs using the Visual Basic programming language and the Visual Basic development environment. Over the course of 12 lessons, discover the building blocks of programming, including using variables to store data, control structures and loops. You'll find out how to use the large function library built into Visual Basic, including the .NET Framework, as well as how to write and use your own functions. You'll also see how to use the varied library of controls and how to access files and handle errors. And since Windows applications are event-driven and everything in Visual Basic is treated as a programmable object, you'll learn about event-driven and object-oriented programming-concepts that are important not just in Visual Basic, but in other programming languages as well.
