||Microsoft Visual Basic is programming environment
using to create computer applications for the Microsoft Windows
family of operating systems. Like most programming environments, it
uses a core language to give instructions to the computer about what
to do, when and how. These lessons teach the language used in
Microsoft Visual Basic.
The lessons on this web site are about the Visual Basic language,
as a computer language, not a programming environment. To follow the
lessons, you can use either Microsoft Visual Basic 2008 Express
Edition (that you can download free from the Microsoft web site) or
Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional.
