Bringing event driven programming to your enterprise
Visual Basic has been a part of the technology landscape since 1991, when it became one of the first event-driven programming languages to reach the mainstream. Since that time, Microsoft has continued to develop and refine solutions based on its original framework.
Although Visual Basic 6 was completed in 1998 and is no longer officially supported by the Microsoft enterprise as of 2008, it is still used by hundreds of thousands of developers.
Likewise, understanding Visual Basic 6 can help in the design of programs and applications for more modern Microsoft-based environments.
With all of this in mind, Visual Basic 6 can still be a powerful tool, especially if you are concerned about backwards compatibility with earlier applications.
Why should you use Visual Basic 6?
Despite its age, Visual Basic 6 is still supported by a very large community of developers. There are several great reasons for this — but the most important is that it is simply easier to use than many alternatives.
Unlike many other languages, Visual Basic 6 isn’t “just” a programming language — it’s an integrated development environment (“IDE”) that smooths the way to developing complete software solutions.
Visual Basic 6 is also highly compatible with the software industry project management approach known as RAID. In RAID, companies like Espresso Moon achieve better results by building graphical interfaces to help automate common development tasks in Visual Basic 6.
