Visual Basic

Visual Basic… VB!! These two words are very familiar among computer programming professionals. It was Microsoft which introduced many useful things for its computer savvy users, introduced the language during 1990’s.

Visual Basic defines a new way of programming in computers today. The technological advancement has lead to a revolution among programming language history. When told to vote for the easiest programming language from different programming languages, any tech savvy person will vote for visual basic for its simplicity and relatively easier to understand.

Visual Basic actually has got two parts. One is visual objects and the programming language. The programming structure is basically taken from one of the old language BASIC. BASIC stands for Beginners All purpose Symbolic Instructions Code. The concept of visual objects was basically taken from object oriented programming structure.

BASIC was a popular programming language among computer programmers during 1980’s. The syntax was easy to understand, which played as an important factor for the programming language to become popular. It was so popular in such a way that it was used even by school going kids to develop small applications.

Microsoft noted the popularity of BASIC and it developed and released Visual Basic, which was treated as a higher version of the programming language at the time of release. Thus a step for a modern programming language was created.

Visual Basic is also called as an event driven programming language, because, some event will get triggered, automatically, when a user does something in programs which are developed using Visual Basic.

Visual Basic became popular because it was used for programming with its Windows based systems. Microsoft noted and released higher versions of it and went on to release Visual Basic in its .Net, and renamed it as Visual Basic.Net.

An easy language with modern approach in syntaxes, visual basic will continue to be first preferred language of programmers of all times and will continue to dominate software industry in the coming future also.

Believe me or not, I have to admit honestly that, I learnt C++ object oriented programming concepts after I learnt Visual Basic! The idea of OOP’s never flashed to me, when I learnt C++ directly after going through C! - Pandu, CEO, Team ICanTech.In
