as my username might indicate...I'm so not a fan of DotNetNuke

ok now that we've gotten that out of the way

so here's the thing - my background is in php and up until maybe a year or so ago I did strictly procedural coding as opposed to oo coding (I don't know how I lived without oop for so long) and now that I'm thrown into a whole new situation that requires DNN and asp.net/vb.net/c# programming - of which I have zero experience - which is the better language to work with DNN? where are substantive tutorials and videos etc where I can learn more about what I'm doing? my fear is that I spend hours upon hours upon hours learning one language when really I should be learning and using the other

please don't let my questions turn into a debate on which language is better across the board - I'm asking specifically in terms of DNN whether vb.net or c# would be better in consideration of my php experience (yes I know that they have nothing to do with each other directly - but the fact that I had written procedurally for maybe 6 or 7 years before I was able to grasp the finer points of oop may have a bearing on your opinion)

thanks for your time

i know you dont want a debate, but i think one will start anyways lol
I do C#.net... i love it... i also have done some VB... it's ok, but it's... idk... I have been told that C# is better also by various VB and C# programmers... From my xp VB is easier, but also i learned C# first, and then it's just syntax changes and figuering out how exactly the code wants it written... Codeing is not really about "what language" it's more about the flow and how things work and knowing... "how to code"... I personally would say C#

thanks so much alykins -

about the debate - I know that there was a debate only just a few weeks ago where the question was asked whether or not .net was on its way out or something like that and there were 2 or 3 participants that just went a bit overboard imo - that's why I said as vb.net and c# relate to dotnetnuke - my preference will always be php :p :D

I'm hoping a few more opinions come in - I'm currently neck deep in 2 vb.net tutorials and I agree that it's about the flow which is why I tried to point out that for so long I'd written procedurally and I think vb.net is more like that than straightforward oop?
