I need some advice on learning a new programming language. I have background in computer graphics so I am a visual type of person. I want to create a program that will help my wife back up her files to the external hard disks and learn how to code other programs. Soon I am going to go over some online videos about programming terminology so I can learn different terms and what they mean.
I have written some short scripts in PowerShell and I like it a lot because it is very fast, but I also recently downloaded Visual Studio 2017 and am thinking about using Visual Basic instead because I think it would be easier for me to learn.
How fast is Visual Basic compared to PowerShell and what do you think I should use?
