I assume that vb.net code is currently being used on a Windows Forms app... right?

You surely can reuse your code between different platforms, it really depends on how well designed your application is.
If you placed all code in UI elements events like button clicks and such then you'll have an hard time refactoring all that.

On the other hand, if all the business logic is already decoupled from the UI it's just a matter of rewriting the UI for the new platform and reuse the business logic.

I would say that if you have a good Test Coverage you probably already have a good application layers abstraction.

So, if everything I said above sounds like alien language then you're screwed!! :)

Good luck!!

If you have a windows forms app and want to port it to the Web, ASP.Net is the way to go.

The only thing that will dictate how hard this process will be is how well designed your currentapp is...

Oh, so you have no clue on what I'm speaking about :)

ASP.net is the presentation technology that Microsoft created for the .Net Framework.
Like Windows Forms it can be coded in VB.net, C# or whatever other language that implements the ECMA standards.

Now the difference is that for Windows Forms you don't need anything else, is all done in VB.net and the software runs on Windows.

With ASP.net the Software run on a browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome,... whatever) and browsers know nothing but HTML, Javascript and CSS...
What ASP.net brought at the time when it appeared was a smooth transition to whoever was used to Windows Forms reuse their skills to develop for the Web.
You can build web apps the same way you build windows apps by drag and drop controls and arrange things. Your VB.net code runs on the server while HTML is generated for you.

Although, you'll need a lot more knowledge to create something nice :)
You'll need to know HTML, CSS and Javascript although it's not mandatory, nowadays there's no website that doesn't use it.

I could dive deeper in this concept but you really have to just try it.
Open Visual Studio and create a Web Application.
Use this website as a start: http://www.asp.net/

Put some money in good hands and buy a PluralSight subscription.
They have a lot of trainings for ASP.net like this one for instance.

Have fun!!

Get one month and squeeze it as much as possible.
Take it when you know that you'll have time to really take advantage of it.

For me it's the best way to start.
From there you still have to build your own path but you'll have a lot in the baggage already.

Cheers!
