Choosing VB.NET or C# Learning Guide

One of the biggest questions facing Visual Basic 6 developers is whether to make the jump to C# or to VB.NET. The languages are very similar, but there are enough differences that one should think carefully before choosing one or the other -- or both.

This Learning Guide aims to make the process of choosing your next .NET language easier. First, we assembled articles and commentary from authors and bloggers who have compared the two languages. Then we compiled resources that will help developers make the transition from VB 6 to VB.NET, from VB 6 to C# and, if need be, from C# to VB.NET. Finally, we listed forums where developers can post their VB.NET and C# questions.

If you'd like to submit additional resources for this learning guide or suggest other topics for new learning guides, please send us an email and let us know.
