Happy 10th Birthday to the Italian VB Tips and Tricks Community! (Lisa Feigenbaum)

“Visual Basic Tips & Tricks” is an Italian online community that was started 10 years ago today. To be exact, the first tips were actually published in 1996 on a personal web page of the founder and leader, Gianluca Cannalire. However, the group recognizes the first day of the “real community” as December 8th 1998, when a web portal was created with articles, forums, mailing lists, downloads, and tips. “Visual Basic Tips & Tricks” currently hosts 36,300 subscribers, and is the second largest Italian development community!

The Microsoft Visual Basic team would like to thank all the people in the “VB T&T” community that share their knowledge, experiences and real life scenarios on the site every day, and congratulate them on their 10 years. In honor of this special event, we’ve created a fun video for you to enjoy. 🙂
