A Brief History of Visual Basic

Visual Basic is a third-generation event-driven programming language first released by Microsoft in 1991.  The final version was Visual Basic 6. VB is a user-friendly programming language designed for beginners. Therefore, It enables anyone to develop GUI window applications easily. Many developers still favor VB6 over its successor VB.NET.

In 2002, Microsoft released Visual Basic.NET(VB.NET) to replace Visual Basic 6.  Thereafter, Microsoft declared VB6 a legacy programming language in 2008.  However, Microsoft still provides some form of support for VB6. VB.NET  is a fully object-oriented programming language implemented in the .NET Framework. It was created to cater for the development of the web as well as mobile applications.

Subsequently, Microsoft has released many versions of VB.NET.  They are VB2005, VB2008VB2010VB2012VB2013 VB2015 , VB2017 and VB2019  Although the  .NET  portion was discarded in 2005, all versions of the Visual Basic programming language released since 2002 are regarded as VB.NET programming languages.

Every version of VB.NET is bundled with other Microsoft programming languages that include C#, C++, F#, JavaScript,  Python and more in the Microsoft Integrated Development Environment(IDE) known as Visual Studio.  Microsoft has added many new features in the latest Visual Studio 2019, particularly those features for building mobile applications.  You can download the Free Visual Studio 2019 from
