Alright, so here is my contribution to the "Im a VB" campaign

I've always been a fan of Visual Basic. Since its earliest days, VB has been a trusted way to quickly and easily get things done if you're developing for the Windows (and now even Linux) platforms. To be sure, VB has gone through some major changes, but Microsoft has always kept to their word and kept the language easy to wrap your head around.

You can imagine my excitement when I saw on the Visual Basic Team Blog a new marketing and promotion effort by Microsoft called "I'm a VB". I'm a VB features interviews - both text and video - with ordinary developers who use VB in their daily work. As you might imagine, I was more than happy to contribute my story.

Here is my story, I'd love to encourage any VB developers out there to contribute your own story and let the world know that VB can do some heavy lifting. It's not just for toy applications anymore! You can also read other interviews here.
