Learning Resources for Visual Basic Express

Microsoft has launched the Absolute Beginner’s Video Series for learning the basics of creating applications using Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition. The series includes over 10 hours of video-based instruction that walks you through creating your first "Hello World" application to a fully functioning RSS Reader application. Sample projects covered in the videos can be downloaded.
You can also download a Supplemental Readings paper, which is also an excellent introduction to computers and programming generally, including chapters on:

  • What is Computer Programming
  • Object Oriented Programming
  • What is the .NET Framework?
  • Creating and Obtaining Data from a Database
