Happy Birthday (Visual) Basic!

BASIC turns 40! As a Visual Basic programmer and guru :) I must acknowledge the anniversary that this beautiful language was created: April 30th. I never had to learn BASIC, but my Dad used to code BASIC for fun “back in the day“ and he is always telling me how different things were in BASIC than they are in Visual Basic. Of course there is still enough similarity that one can see that BASIC was the core foundation. I must say that I am very happy to work with Visual Basic rather than simply DOS BASIC because I love ActiveX and Windows based programming. 

I got to clicking on the links in Jaff Hadfield's blog and found some pretty cool stuff. Happy 40th BASIC!
