A Note before Starting
You've taken out the installation CDs from the package; you've gone through the lengthy install process, and now what? You've opened up the program, sat through the loading screen, and you're ready to go do … what? "Hello World is a great place to start," you think. You hit New Project on the start screen, and up pops the new application wizard. Hit a few more options, and up comes the designer. You go to the code window and see … Public Class! Whoa! What's this?!

Or, let's say you are an experienced programmer who has been around the block a few times. You've done it all; you started with COBOL, you've done C/C++, and may have used VB6 at some point in the past. But now, you are required to move to .NET, and have encountered a similar problem as described above.

In either case, no matter what your experience is in VB, you have to start somewhere. In the move, such a big deal was made about OOP, and now it's time to actually learn it. Where do you start? Right here, of course.

This tutorial, for the lack of a better word, is designed to discuss the different aspects of OOP, and hopefully explain why it is so beneficial to use OOP in coding. At the moment, it stops at inheritance basics, but it should provide you with help in understanding some of the more interesting aspects of the .NET platform, or any OOP-supported language.

Enjoy, and don't hesitate to jump right in!
