Looking at the requirements for a VB programmer below, it looks very bright to me. If you have an added knowledge of ASP then you have a very bright future.

Good Luck

Dear Ibbrahim,
you are the future. Today VB has the largest number programmers in the world. If not mistaken greater than 60% of all programmers. There is a shortage of programmers all over the world except maybe India. VB by Microsoft came late into the IT market but now is the number one. As a product is closely tied to the source (Microsoft) and break-up of Microsoft might have some effects. Whatever it is, it has taken shape and will be around for more than 5 years. Java cameand it is still struggling. The question is not what will be the future of VB but the future of programmers in future? The need for programmers will slow down as the technologies like Microsoft.net takes up. Only the best of the breed will be employed by big companies like Microsoft who will be writing most of the world software and put out it on the net. All user will be using only what they need and pay as they use and what they use.
There will be some amount of users who need some specializated software where programmers will be needed. Other than that the need for programmers in 10 years time will reduce dramatically. Don't worry if you a good programmer, you are gold. So tone out your skils and grab as much as you can now. Go on retirement early if my prediction come true. Don't worry. Be happy.
