Visual Basic is one of the Microsoft core languages for building desktop, mobile, and web applications. Get started programming with VB using Visual Studio 2012 Express for Windows Desktop and these tutorials from David Gassner. The course jump-starts with Hello World projects for three common application architectures (console, desktop, and Windows Store apps), and shows how to program with VB in both Windows Forms and Windows Presentation Foundation. The course then outlines the language fundamentals such as data types, strings, operators, conditional code, and looping constructs. Plus, discover how to package reusable code in functions and subroutines, and explore the object-oriented nature of Visual Basic through custom classes.
(music playing) My name is David Gassner, and this is Visual Basic Essential Training. After installing Visual Studio Express for Windows desktop, I'll show you how to create a variety of Visual Basic projects using both Windows forms and Windows Presentation Foundation. Then I'll look at the language's fundamental building blocks including variables and data types focusing first on the elementary data types such as numbers, strings and dates. I'll then show you how to package reusable code in functions and subroutines.
The last part of the course describes the object-oriented nature of Visual Basic and shows you how to create custom classes that have instance fields, properties and shared members. Visual Basic can be used to create all sorts of applications for the web, desktop, and portable devices. I hope that this course helps you get started building your applications for Microsoft development platforms.
