This web site features the language used to create applications for the Microsoft Visual Basic .NET programming environment. Since there is no official or faithful name for this language, on this site and in our lessons, we will refer to it as VBasic. 


All of the programs created in our lessons are console based. This means that, to learn the language as such, and not confused with the Visual Basic .NET programming environment, we create only applications that display in the DOS window.
