Visual Basic .net is an excellent programming language. Beginners can appreciate it’s English-like syntax, and more advanced programmers can appreciate its vast libraries and flexibility. It’s part of the .Net family of languages, and as such, it allows you to program some truly amazing solutions. So, congratulations on choosing to learn this amazing language. 🙂
As it is common among beginner programmers, the enthusiasm to learn often is not enough to make the leap from beginner to intermediate.
The bad news is: code fear is real, and it hinders, or even stops your progress.
The good news is: you can learn to eliminate it! And all it takes is a little practice and determination. And that’s where this course will help you greatly!
The course goes over Visual Basic programming projects from a popular college Visual Basic textbook: “Introduction to Programming Using Visual Basic” by David Schneider. I show you how to put the theory you learned into practice by showing you how to solve each exercise and walking you through all the Why’s and How’s.
You and I will go on a journey to program simple solutions, such as a Calculator, all the way to complex solutions such as Bank Account and Black Jack simulator.
Because the course goes over ALL exercises from one text book, some of the concepts are repeated across multiple exercises. The course is not meant to follow any particular guidline where each exercise builds up on the previous one, but rather serves as a comprehensive reference, allowing students to skip exercises that present concepts the student is already familiar with.
In the process, you will learn the ins and outs of Visual Basic language. You will learn how to translate the project requirements into a working code. You will learn to use many different programming concepts, such as Conditional Statements, Loops, Arrays, Multi-dimensional arrays, LINQ, OOP, databases… and pick the right one for your solution. But above all, you will learn to think like a programmer!
This course is all about practice. Therefore, to benefit from this course, you need to be an active student. It doesn’t matter if you are self-taught or attend a programming course. What matters is the time and effort you are willing to put into learning and practicing your skills.
There are no lectures in this course. However, I do my best to explain what I am trying to accomplish with each line of code, and touch on common pitfalls, too.
This is a course for beginner VB .net programmers who need to put the concepts and theory they learned into practice and for people who prefer to learn by doing.
If that’s you, then let’s start coding!
