RE: Refactoring in Whidbey for VB.NET

Ouch. Now, I’ve spent a bunch of time in VB.NET. (Most of our VS test automation is written with it.)  But this was too funny not to pass along. If you can’t laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at?

According to Microsoft’s Paul Vick, Refactoring support in will differ from that in C#. Terminology and structure of available features will be simplified to cater for the less rigorous intellect of the VB developer.

I cannot confirm that this image is legitimate. But it is reputedly the first screen shot of the context menu available to VB programmers in the Whidbey IDE.

  3. Too funny! That reminds me of the old image of a windows menu, that had an menu item called "Do my work"…

    Hi Josh

    Sean is right, i totally ripped the idea off of jokes that have been emailed around the place since time immemorial.

    (and I did a C# version of this joke at the time too, but it was too lame so i never posted it.)



    p.s. the updated URI is (because I moved site a few months ago) {the old site chokes if too much traffic goes to it}
