    VB.Net and future

    I am a VB Programmer on intermediate level.

    With VB.Net knocking on our door i started to wonder, is it really worth
    for me and my future to invest my time learning more about VB 6.0 or should
    i utilise this time reading and elarning VB.Net which is going to be future
    (according to many gurus)

    Time management and proper utilisation of time is issue here.

    There is a market for utilizing, maintaining VB 6 applications and there is
    a market for creating new applications using VB.NET. VB.NET is the future
    of future development, but VB 6 is still viable for existing systems.

    Santosh,

    If you are not familiar with C++, Java, or any OO language, it is the time
    to learn now. The new .NET languages are Object-Oriented (IMHO, I think
    Microsoft is "copying" Java to "create" C#..... but that's another
    discussion, ha). But if you already know C++ and Java, the learning curve
    for the .NET languages is not very steep.

    And if you are staying with the Microsoft technologies (my assumption),
    there is no reason why you don't look into VB.NET right now. Remember this:
    You will never score any touchdown by watching on the sideline! Just dive
    in.

    Hope this helps.

    simon.

    .NET is a different programming paradigm altogether from VB6 or even C++.
    VB.NET is NOT VB7. If you start digging in you will find a whole host of
    things that are more different than they are alike.

    My feeling is this: The clock has been reset to zero. You are on the same
    level with .NET as EVERYONE else! Jump on now and get ahead of the curve
    and be a VB.NET guru before others. You should have been investigating this
    since Spring 2001. The .NET RC0 is not much different from Beta2.

    Santosh,
    I think you will like the .Net framework if you try it out. Dont be concerned
    wheter its vb.net or c# you get into. Its the underlying .Net framework that
    is really important. Go through the quickstarts and alter the code to suit
    your dbs. You will soon be using .net to your advantage.
    Best of Luck

    You should,

    I've been a VB developer since the early days. And since these early days,
    I've always missed something, a true language. VB .NET IS a true language.
    I'm currently developing an application that manages a company inventory.
    I already wrote such an application in VB6, I had a **** of a time creating
    a suitable framework for the data. In VB .NET, I had only to write a few
    classes to reproduce the whole system! Yep, try it out, it is worth the
    time. It might seem somewhat hard to understand, but I assure you, this
    is the best bet you can place!!
