    Hi Guys

    Not sure which to do, would prefer C# over VB, simply to get started on OOP?

    Any advice

    Both languages can do almost the same things under .NET framework.

    C# is a strong typing programming language which means you must follow many grammaric syntax rules to make your program work. You also have to spend more time than VB.NET to do the same thing. But you will also make less mistake logically because C# will do everything a compiler can do for preventing error.

    If you will develop large scale softwares, C# is the right option. If you will program for fun or for some small businesses, VB.NET will be great. If you will program for money, you should be familiar with both.

    VB.NET is a Microsoft thing which ties in with their products nicely. C# is something that most other programmers will be familiar with.
    You need to decide which direction you want to go in when you complete your studies.
    The .NET framework and the CLR mean that you can use both languages to achieve the same thing, so as far as your studies go, it doesn't really matter.
