This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
Google is the way to go for sure. But be careful... you want to find recent tutorials. When I googled "visual basic tutorial" the first two links were tutorials published in 1996. Useless now. Make sure you're getting a VB.NET tutorial.
