GeneralNew to writing code...brain is melting...... [modified] PinmemberITWino19-Feb-13 8:16 
Hello all....
Great web site. Love the info and suggestions I can get here.
So, I have been doing IT work for over 25 years (servers, networks, hardware, etc...) and never delved into the development field. I now have the opportunity to learn writing and modifying code, but I am having a hard time making this logic click.
I have several beginner books on Visual Studio (2005,2010,2012)and have done the training classes offered by a local business.
I am focusing on Visual Basic as my language of choice because the company I work for uses this only.
Any suggestions on how I can make all this info click?
I understand the concepts, but just could not write the code behind a app i lay out in VS Designer to save my life.
 

EDIT:
 
Thanks all for the great advice. I sort of suspected I was trying to bite off more than I could chew.
Going to go back simple and work my way up.
