I am interested in buying a new compiler and don’t know wether to purchase Visual Basic or Visual C++. I have taken a course in C++, but I am not sure which way is the best to go.
If you have only taken the one course, you might consider starting out with Visual Basic. With VB, you’ll just be up and running much quicker than with Visual C++, which has a much steeper learning curve. Then you can always switch to Visual C++ down the road if you determine that programming is for you and decide to develop new skills.
