I’m not keeping up my blog like I should. To try and fix this, I’m going to attack my backlog of “articles to end forum posts”. I’m active on some beginners’ VB .NET forums, and some questions come up very frequently. It’s frustrating when it’s one that requires a lot of explanation like, “Why does setting the property on this class change the property on this other variable?”. I’m going to try and attack one of these each month or (ideally) each week. Maybe by then I’ll be in the habit.
Today’s article: Converting Strings to Numbers. It’s a beginners’ article, so don’t expect anything profound. My main target is newbie VB .NET developers but I threw in some C# information where it behaves differently.
