How will this course help me get job?
Studies conducted by Gartner, International Data Corporation, McKinsey, NASSCOM, Price-Waterhouse-Coopers, Stevens International Consulting and others forecast a remarkable growth in India's IT businesses and increasing job opportunities for IT professionals in this sector. McKinsey alone projects India's 2008 IT industry revenues at US $ 80 billion [Rs. 4,00,000 crores] and job potential at 2,200,000. Emerging markets have been identified as falling under 4 broad sectors - IT Services, Software Products, IT Enabled Services, and e-Businesses*

Reportedly, on an average, for every direct job in the IT industry, at least 5 additional IT-related jobs are created in businesses that use IT hardware and software. Also, if employment opportunities for Indian IT professionals through friendly immigration policies in USA, EC, Australia, Japan etc are taken into account the total demand for IT and IT related professionals may turn out to be nearer to NASSCOM's figure of 3,000,000. Most in demand worldwide will be versatile IT professionals - professionals who have integrated mastery of fundamentals with across-domain IT competencies, professionals who deliver performance under pressure any where in the world.

"India's global competitive edge of high quality software and competitive rates should in fact see us win contracts when the market is tight. Given that India's combined market share of overseas software work to be a miniscule one percent the slowdown of business in the US is not likely to dramatically affect Indian software development firms".---Quote from Vivek Paul, President Wipro Technologies.

What are the advantages of JAVA over VB.Net?
It is too early for a mature language like Java to be compared with an infant like Visual basic .net. As you might be knowing that VB.net is just a language independent programming environment while Java is a platform independent programming language which makes it better than VB.net........Another advantage that Java has over VB.net is the range of components that Java offers are much more powerful than what VB.net offers. Java offers Servlets, Beans, CORBA and components that can be used independently. Using VB.net you can just create some class libraries, Dynamic Link Libraries and small desktop applications and web applications that are restricted to a particular platform.

Is .Net an operating system as it provides environment for applications to work?
.Net is not an operating system.....it is an operating cum development environment. It not only provides an environment for an application to develop but also to execute.

There is an operating system that Microsoft Corporation is currently working on called Windows.net which will act as a platform for .net applications.

What are the key point of VB.Net?
The key point and the only key point that makes VB.net what it is today is its Full Object oriented support. VB.net is an object oriented language which means that it supports classes, objects, inheritance, polymorphism. Guess what......u can even write a VB.net code using a simple editor like Notepad and compile it with the Visual Basic Compiler (vbc.exe).

Is it compulsory that people who knows VB has to go for VB.Net?

Migrating from VB 6.0 to VB.net is not too easy as some of the features are completely new. But Microsoft Corporation have taken care of this problem as they have introduced a wizard in VB.net that will convert your existing VB 6 code to a brand new VB.net code. It is not compulsory but recommended that a VB 6.0 programmer upgrades himself or herself to VB.net because anything launched next by Microsoft is going to be on terms of the .net framework. Unfortunately VB 6.0 does not come under the .net framework.

What are the actual implementation area of VB.Net? Is it for creating win forms or for creating web forms?
WinForms and WebForms are a part of the Visual Studio.net IDE. These tools are used to create attractive forms & reports. The role of Visual Basic.net is to provide functionality to the controls that are available in WinForms and WebForms. Using WinForms without C# or VB.net is like having a car without engine.
