·        How long have you been using VB?

I started with a VB6 course I took in 2000 during two weeks and I played with it during few months. Then I left it until 2006, when I took a free short VB6 course at university. Then I left it until mid 2007 because our thesis project is made in advanced VB6 (at that time I just knew the very basics). Since then, I haven’t left it again 😉

 

·        What industry do you work in?

I work in an enterprise of security for documents, access control and personal identification. But what I do there is a little of electronics, technical support and software development.

 

·        How big is your development team?

Just me

 

·        What kind of apps do you most commonly build?

data access and image manipulation.

 

·        What’s the most interesting app you’ve ever built?

Our thesis project. It’s a VB6 app that uses flash animations, calls other app made in Matlab and uses another little VB6 app mixed with C++. It’s a little bit experimental because it’s a thesis and I’m a electronic engineer that codes a lot 🙂

 

·        Please tell us about an app that you’re working on at the moment.

A VB.Net app that upload data from a remote BD in SQL server 2005 and generate the respective Crystal Reports.

 

·        What other technologies do you most commonly use?

Matlab, C++, C# 3.0, Crystal Reports.

 

·        What are some of your favorite VB features?

Intellisense!! It can remember my variables better than me!

 

·        What do you like most about VB as a programming language?

Easy and fast to code. In general, .Net is easy to learn, I did it by myself. I use C# for learning and experimenting purposes, but at work I code in both VB6 and VB.Net.   If you’re familiar with both VB6 and C#, you can learn VB.Net in a week.
