Visual Basic 6.0, Enterprise Edition
Visual Basic (VB) is an event driven programming language and associated development environment prototyped by Alan Cooper as Project Ruby, then bought and vastly improved upon by Microsoft. It is derived heavily from BASIC and enables rapid application development (RAD) of graphical user interface (GUI) applications, access to databases using DAO, RDO, or ADO, and creation of ActiveX controls and objects.
A programmer can put together an application using the components provided with Visual Basic itself. Programs written in Visual Basic can also use the Windows API, but doing so requires external function declarations. Like all other Turing complete programming languages, it can be used to create arbitrarily complex applications.
In business programming, Visual Basic has one of the largest user bases. According to some sources, as of 2003, 52 percent of software developers used Visual Basic, making it the most popular programming language at that time. However, research done by Evans Data found that forty three percent of those Visual Basic developers planned to move to other languages.
