Kirk (one of my new colleagues at Xero) and Phil (one of my old colleagues at Trade Me – Phil, where’s your blog?) have organised a C# vs. VB.NET debate for the Wellington .NET users group tonight.
Should be fun.
- Most of the audience will be C# developers;
- Few of them will have ever used VB.NET in anger;
- Despite that, they will have already convinced themselves somehow that VB.NET is inferior;
- None, if challenged, would be able to build anything using C# that Phil couldn’t build just as well in VB.
Meanwhile, important problems remain unsolved.
Update: I’ve responded to some of the comments and emails generated by this post in a subsequent post called Parlez vous Anglais?
