On May 30, 2001 I will be 32 (in hex). I've been programming for 14 years for a direct mail company -- 11 years on a mainframe using assembler.
(Anybody recognize this? OI 0(R9),X'01').

We switched to PC's a few years ago and I've been teaching myself Basic since then. I have written many programs in Qbasic, PowerBasic, and VB. Most of them small and tailored to our business. I am finding API's quite helpful and use them quite a bit... but no experience in classes or database yet.

Hi everyone! I am new to this site, but I thought I'd put in my information. I am a 16 year old kid and I've had about a year's worth of experience in VB. My main language is Perl, which I have been programming in for about 5-6 years now. I currently run 3 companies, a web-design company, a computer repair company (http://www.freespace.nu), and CGI Freebies - my main project which is a free hosting center online I started back in '99 (http://www.cgifreebies.org). I consider myself intermediate in VB, but an expert in Perl and other scripting languages. I am familar with many web proticols and with linux.
Thats enough.

Hi,
My name is Thomas Pepler and I am by all accounts a newbie.
I am learning VB in my spare time and would like very much to one day be able to make a living doing this. All that I am working on right now are small games for my kids (they don't mind bugs) but as time goes on we'll see what I can come up with!

I live in the UK, though am originally from Holland, I am 27 and am married with 6 kids. I used to be a carpenter until just over a year ago when I got on a computer for the first time since school and decided on a career change. I learnt VB, C++, HTML and JavaScript from books and courses and with a lot of luck landed a decent job. I am currently working on projects for CBOT and NYMEX, and my pet project Media-Hub goes on sale in North America in about a weeks time.

I would have to rate myself as newbie as there is so much more I need to learn, joining this forum has been a big help and a good learning curve for me, its great how everyone helps eachother and shares the knowledge not like those secretive C++ guys [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

I live in Northern Ireland, I am 26 and I have been programming since i was 14 (when BBC's were still cool). I rate myself somewhere between Expert and Crap, it really depends on what I am working on. At the moment I am developing a Blind Manufacturing Program which uses Acess2000 / Acess97. I love VB and I hate C++ , I had a go at HTML and ASP and liked it so much that I designed a website for my work. (http://www.ball-software.com)

At the moment I am trying to get into DirectX programming but not neccessarily games. Its a very powerfull language and I hope to use it to develop a new concept I've been working on, but thats another story.

cheers gaz

Despite my nick, I'm a 22 year old GUY. Nope, I'm not a cross-nicker. I just liked the fact that "Phoebe" sounded very much like "VB".

I am definitely a newbie. I first learnt VB5, C, Java last year. Since my major, CIS, is a business program, they only taught me the basics. Thanks to the helpful members of this forum, I am becoming a better programmer and finding out about advanced topics, the cooler stuffs!

Wink Re: Who ARE you?

I guess I feel like I better do this too.....

I am a 30 year old help desk person who needed to fill up her time. I started programming actually as a child with a Commodor 64 and Basic. I created a couple of really simple games. When I got to high school I went on to Pascal but never really took off with it because I was too busy having fun:-)

As an adult, I encountered another programming adventure when I became a manager. I ended up troubleshooting a program written in dBase III that forced me to learn a lot about databases and frankly dBase.

So, when I had this time on my hands I decided to get back into programming and VB just seemed a natural choice. I have been actively studying for about 6 months now. I had played with it for a few months before this but nothing serious. After a few months of active study I took on a small project for a small vending company. I have been working on that mostly now and I must admit that without this website I don't think there would be a program at all!

Bottom line, I am a newbie. I have learned A LOT in a short time and am LOVING it. That doesn't mean I am any more advanced though:-)

Thank you so much for all the assistance. It has been phenomenal. And, as many people have mentioned, the other forums are not this good. I think one of the great things about this forum is that it mixes the newbies and the pros. Sometimes we can answer each other's questions (newbies I mean) but we often need the pros to come in and bail us out.

Thank you all!!!!!

I would say that I am a journeyman. My area of expertise is definitely database programming, and I have been working with that for about 2 years. I worked with VB 4 initially, I skipped VB 5, and I have mainly worked with VB 6. I am recently trying to learn more about Internet-based functions and what some people might consider simple functions, because I was self-taught mainly and my knowledge is definitely patchy. Any help I am given is greatly appreciated.

Well, I'm definetely somewhere between Journeyman and Mid-Newbie. I'm one of the youngest posters on here (13 yrs old) and I have been programming VB 6.0 for about three to four months now. I'm working on API calls and advanced databases. API calls seem to be my weakness, as I can never remember the Syntax (Public Declare Function "Lib32" something etc..) I just keep having to look it up. Anyway, my other skills include HTML (My strongest language, I am quite proficient with it, but it gets complicated) and as I said, I am learning databases and all that side stuff of Visual Basic.

Soon I will answer your questions, now you will answer mine...

BillSoo, first of all I think u have created a record for this VB forum because this is the most huge amount of viewer i ever saw in this VB forum. Congratulation.

I am from Malaysia and fresh graduate from University. So, i can consider my self lower than Newbier and still learning of it. I also disagrre with PWNettle for aging himself so low than the avarage. I do agree with karimahta saying that PWNett have almost participatting all the disscussion in this forum by giving construtive idea and guideline. I am one of the benefitcial of his kidness. He help me a lot when i am doing my Final Year thesis when i develop a Application System using Visual Basic. I do maximize this opportunity to thank other VB expert in this forum because they do help me indirectly to solve my problem.

Back to your survey, I am start learning Visual Basic 1 years ago and I am still learning it so far. Basically I only concentrate on simple VB application function. As u know, for starter i thnk it's the best way for me.

I have participating in this "games" or i call it "VB Tuition Centra" almost a year. After I finished my thesis, I have stop entering here again and I login few days ago when I start to try out my own interest on VB again at home for leisure time. Yet, i have posted my problem in here and i have got respond from some experts in here. But if u have time, please do help me by guilding me for the future.

For the time being, please give a look for my problem which the title is "VB .exe or application files" by me, foongkim. Thanks a lot!!

I used to be a 'guru' but haven't programmed in more than 10 years. My first computer was a Sinclair, 2nd was a Radio Shack Color Computer, from then on PC's & Macs. My first actual language was Fortran, then Basic, then Pascal (which I hated), did a little bit of Cobol but wouldn't say I ever got proficient, did C++ for a while, some assembly which I loved, but I only used it to speed up math routines. Most of my programming was in the Basic Professional Development System v. 7.0. Almost everything I ever knew is hoplelessly out of date. My first actual program was kind of like pong, just playing around. Mostly I've dealt with probability problems, but I got burned out. Just trying to get up to speed with OOP & VB. Not sure why...

I've tried to program females, but it doesn't work. If you hear from any successful female programmers, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I have a million questions... What language do you use? What is proper syntax? Property Let & Property Get procedures are especially confusing. The behaviors seem to be completely unpredictable. Not to mention the scope of variables. Just where do you declare His(), Hers(), Ours()? Very confusing. And then there are the events! I've searched my code through and through and have never been able to find a RaiseEvent statement that coincides with even one event procedure that crashed my system. And then there's the error handling... I've tried and tried, but it is impossible to code. Is there an Err.Clear anywhere? So far, all I seem to be able to manage are a few function calls.

Just a little update.

I have been off this forum for awhile due to a job change. I now work for a (currently) small SDI broker that is only about 10 miles from home where before I was over 50 miles from home and required to use public transportation. Now I can ride my Harley to work every day.

Also, I was shocked to see that somehow in the interim I had become a "Guru" and my friend Bill is now an "Exalted One". Oy! Such a deal...

Doin' VB and lovin' it.

Who am I? Jerry, that's me.

It's an interesting question, Bill. At least reading replies from others is.

I am a "seasoned" programmer (I hope that is the correct term). I wrote my first program in Fortran 30 years ago when I was a student. My experience covers Assembler, C, Basic, Cobol, Foxbase, DB 3, plus proprietary stuff of course.

I switched on for a while and switched off for a while with programming in order to get food and money. At this moment it is on and my base is in Sydney. I need working with VB, VBA, Java, HTML... now.

With VB I feel I am a Newbie. I've been using VB and VBA for about 2 years. Most applications I write now requires access to various Databases in our Network.

I am new to this game but find it quite interesting and a fruitful way to learn. Cheers all.

Sorry you lost so much when your drive crashed. I've got a program that restores files even after formatting. Once, I reformatted twice, installed Windows 2000 on top of it, and I was still able to recover almost everything (more than 27 gigabytes). Want to give it a shot? It's 2.75 mb. Takes a long time to run though.

I am a Shift Electrical Engineer at one of the country's largest scrap melting steel companies, Nucor Steel. I started programming in C++ and QBasic in 1993, but left the programming field all together while I was in the Navy. I've been programming in VB for a little over a year now primarily in Database and Data Capture programs.

I would classify myself between newbie and journeyman, simply because I'm self-taught and have excelled in certain areas while lagging in others. I am currently working on Microsoft Certification in VB and have dabbed a bit into Visual C++, though I have found it isn't like riding a bike; you DO forget...
