Convert from VB.NET
Visual Basic .NET (VB.NET) is an object-oriented programming language designed on the Microsoft .NET framework. As a successor to the classic Visual Basic language, it combines an easy-to-learn syntax with the powerful features of .NET, making it accessible yet robust for developers. VB.NET supports a wide range of programming constructs, including LINQ and asynchronous programming. It's used in diverse areas, from desktop and web applications to game development, and it's particularly favored for rapid application development due to its user-friendly interface and integration with the Visual Studio IDE.
