Awesome looking webcast series to bring VB6ers into the .NET fold
Are you or do you know a VB6 programmer who is still worried about the leap, learning curve, etc. to .NET? To me the most daunting thing was not wanting to just do things the VB6 way when I moved to .NET. I didn't want to be just another mort. Well this looks like a REALLY promising series of webcasts that takes VB6 devs by the hand and shows them the real meat of .NET. Quoting Duncan MacKenzie
A series of 15 webcasts & lab exercises for the VB6 programmer... (see the full list here)
