I submitted the following BOF on PDC
Fans of VB Club
Come here if you are a fan of VB and tell us why and where. Talk about the sense or nonsenes of OO, pattern, UML, use cases, agile, extreme, waterfall, 3-tier, SOA and so on. Feel free to tell us how you develop and what is good and what is bad.

I started development in the age of 16 ( now i am 37 years old). I am not sure if Commodore C64 is a label for peoples outside of Germany, anyway with that device i learned assembler. I have done Dbase, Clipper, some Pascal, Classic C (Microsoft C 6.0) developed Win 3.0 with C ( bähhh) changed to borland and uses C++ with owl and than started with VB 3.
Over all this years i have seen a lot of trends, librarys and acronyms and often fall back to realistic. Software is not a hype, it is a tool , which must earn money.
