I just got offered a position as a VB.NET developer, although I have no .NET development experience. I got it because I have some VB, C++, scripting lang's, SQL etc and they offer training onto .NET. But i start in a month and want to get up to speed on VB.NET
What is the best way of doing this. Eg. what web tutorials or even videos and books etc
Also I want to send them an email and ask them to give me a list of the main aspects of VB.NET that I will need for the job. But i don't know how to say it without sounding stupid.
Can you for example break up VB.NET into different area, e.g. windows forms, windows controls, threading, ADO.NET etc....
Cos' if i ask them to "tell me the main areas on VB.NET that I will need to know" i'm sure i will get a crap answer, but if i list all/a lot of areas and they can say Yes and No to the list then i will have a much better knowledge of what i need to know.
Any help would be great, thanks.
