Visual Basic (VB) is a programming language invented by Microsoft to encourage programmers to build applications for Windows. The first version of VB is Visual Basic 1.0 (around 1991). At that time, VB is not an objected-oriented programming language. It is simple and easy to use. Now we have VB.NET that fully supports object-oriented programming style.

By introducing .NET framework and Visual Studio, VB.NET is known to be a widely used programming language to build both Windows and Web applications.
