Try these...

by onbliss In reply to VB Tutor Needed

You might not get one website that offers all the necessary concepts and fundamentals. You have to hunt around.

The best places is to start of with MSDN. Use the online Help and search for walkthroughs. Here are just a few websites that you might find handy.

MSDN is darn good place for you to start learning the .net concepts and coding.

Excellent video series

by mark.hodgson In reply to VB Tutor Needed


This has a range of video tutorials that cover all of the .NET technologies, and are a great starting point for newbies and experienced programmers alike. I found this site through a referral from a Microsoft site.

There is a subscription, but you can download as many videos as you like in the subscription period. Some free videos are also available and these change from time to time.

What to do to learn VB.NET

by unni_kcpm In reply to VB Tutor Needed

Hi !

Few ways according to me ...

1. Get a friend who knows VB.NET to help you
with the basics.
2. I have been to lot of sites looking for
VB.NET codes, tutorial, topics, newsletters
etc. All seems to suit a beginner in one
or another.
3. Source codes may vary depend on the depth
of the Developer in the subject.

As you are a beginner, best thing to buy a
step-by-step guidance book(need to window shopping) and try it. It may take some time
but surely, you will succeed when you concentrate on the things.

Best Wishes
