Visual Basic .Net

Visual Basic .NET (VB.NET) is an object-oriented programming language designed to be easy to learn and use. It is one of the official languages of Microsoft's .NET platform, alongside C# and others. VB.NET can create Windows applications, web services, and web applications with ASP.NET. The language supports structured exception handling, which enables writing reliable code that can recover from unexpected errors. VB.NET has evolved over the years along with its parent platforms such as Visual Studio IDE and continues to provide support for modern features like LINQ (Language Integrated Query) for querying data sources directly from within the language syntax itself.
