For the Aussies, VB is renowned as a type of fermented drink which people either love or hate. It has been described as tasting almost but not quite like beer 🙂 However, this VB I am talking about is nothing like beer but more like a language. Well it is a language actually, the language of computers. VB, or Visual Basic is arguably the culmination of the BASIC language designed for Beginners All purpose Symbolic Instruction Code or in other words, a simple high level beginners language for programming computers.
It was designed to be easy to use, intuitive and yet still be powerful enough to write some decent programs with. Since the advent of BASIC and it now even easier(?) to use Visual Basic it has become arguably the most popular language for every man and his dog to program a computer with.
