  • The switch between c# and VB.net is pretty easy.  The main differences are line terminations, variable declarations, etc.  There are a couple of pretty good code convertors that you could use to learn some of the differences by just feeding your c# code in and looking at the results of the conversion to VB.net.

    This is one that I've used in the past:

  • Hi,

    the effort for switching from one language to another will reduce with your level of experience, because concepts are very similar. Switching from a paradigm to another is harder (for example from OOP to functional or logical programming languages). C# is a good choice for a first programming language, because it can be used differently. Mostly it is an OOP language, but it also has some aspects from functional programming languages (just have a look at LINQ).
