Visual Basic is an easy-to- use code that allows programmers to write code for software and applications quickly; it is therefore used to prototype an application or software product before a more complex program and language is used to fine-tune the product.
However, it can also be used to create advanced applications and can be good for creating object-oriented programs. It also makes a great starting tool for those beginning with software development to develop their skills. It is believed that more than 3 million developers around the world are using Visual Basic to develop their applications.
Many developers and programmers will be aware of and would have used VB within their work. Although, within the industry VB is considered an archaic language, its uses within software and application development has been monumental, and some developers, or companies, may prefer to use it.
Jobs that use Visual Basic include:
