I suggest you continue watching videos on on youtube for 23 hours a day.. You will learn fast in 10 days.. If you miss a day in between or even if you miss a hour in between ,this trick will not work and you will have to start gain.

No matter how many videos you watch, how many tutorials you follow or how many books you read... the only sure way to learn a computer language is to actually try to develop something with it.

My suggestion is:

(1) read a book about the language (see Solution 1 for example) to get acquainted with the language syntax and keywords.

(2) download the source code of a couple projects, there are thousands of them available here on codeproject. Read the associated articles to get an idea of what the code is supposed to do.

(3) Change the downloaded source code to fit your needs. Don't be afraid to trash it... you can always download another copy.

(4) Finally, try to develop something of your own using the language.

These two have the advantage of showing how to make controls and you can run them to see the impact of your changes. Try the search here on codeproject filtering for vb projects.

Well, to answer your question directly, here is a tutorial site that starts you off from no knowledge and brings you slowly up to speed:[^]

I would also recommend Pluralsight, an online video training site. They are excellent at training you on everything from very beginner topics through the advanced ones.

My next recommendation would be to reconsider learning VB.NET. The marketplace, and thus the available training and examples, tends to lean towards C#. The added benefit here is that C# is very similar to Java and a bunch of other major languages. If I were just starting out, I would go the C# route. It might seem more difficult to begin (it really isn't) but it is worth it.

I am seriously not trying to be insulting by suggesting this book, it is actually pretty good for beginners who don't really know anything about the language and programming yet.

Beyond that, your best bet for learning is to visit Google often. Anytime you have a query or something you don't understand, just put that question into google and more often than not there will be a bunch of great solutions right on the first page of results.

The mantra is "Google is your friend, visit him often."

every person will have different opinion and as per my opinion,
decide to make simple project
e.g. Contact book application that have single form (includes name, gender, photo, phoneno, City ... and handle add,edit,delete,search activities)

this way you will learn controls one by one as you will required in your project.
and this experience will useful because it is similar to some of real industrial projects' forms.

you will learn sql & ADO connectivity during this application,
controls like textbox, labels, button, radio-button, dropdown, datagridview etc...

It will be take time because you are learning something new, but google, codeproject, books many sources are available.

Happy Coding!

Here is a site i found helpful. Unfortunately it does not have tutorial. But there are a lot videos on other languages (like C#, java, C, C++ etc). It may not be helpful to you right now, but i thought i would share it anyway.
Computer Programming Videos[^]

Good luck :)

From my point,i think it is better if you start from a book.Besides,you can see online videos and also can learn from online tutorials..some of i give below.Then start coding by yourself each time after you learn something new in will increase your skill.When you feel comfortable with coding in then start some projects on it.Happy Coding..:)[^][^][^]
