VB Developing kids!

script kiddieI recently had to go to one of our contract workers houses to upgrade their PC.  This particular Contractor had a little 9 year old who is quite the computer wiz.  He has already programed his first web browser in VB.  Puts me in mind when I did the same at his age.  When I asked where he had learned to program VB, the little scamp started telling me all about Microsoft’s VB Developer network Kids Corner… Wait… What? There is a VB developers network Kids Corner?  Talk about starting them young Bill! Kinda puts a new meaning to script kiddie.

Not only does this kids corner teach you how to program VB, but also C++… Kids shouldn’t learn C++  That’s just wrong!

Anyways, if you have or know any aspiring little coders make sure to point them in this direction http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/beginner/bb308754.aspx

    I think it is wrong to let a kid learn VB… poisons there minds. C/C++ is not a bad place to start. If you learn Java first you rely too much on garbage collection and right horrible code when you move to C++.
