Visual Basic

Visual Basic

From its inception in 1991, the Visual Basic language has always been a phenomenal productivity tool for building applications. Almost 20 years later, it continues to provide easy access to the Microsoft .NET Framework, allowing developers to write applications that span desktops, phones, browsers and even the cloud with proficient speed.

Microsoft has shipped Visual Studio 2012, which incorporates version 11 of Visual Basic (sometimes referred to as VB 2012 or VB12). This release, the most powerful yet, contains numerous time-saving features that help developers get more done with fewer lines of code. Here’s everything you need to know to hit the ground running with Visual Basic in Visual Studio 2012. Visual Basic 2012 has a slightly new interface and the ability (provided that you have Windows 8) to create Windows 8 UI Apps.

Visual Basic also has a version, VBA, that is implemented in Microsoft Office to develop custom programs and macros.
