Farewell, Too, Visual Basic

Speaking of farewell, it’s bloodbath in the ASP.NET team:

It is also time to say goodbye to Visual Basic. ASP.NET 5 only supports C# and Visual Basic is left behind.

My hope is that this change won’t be too painful. I believe that there are only two people in the entire world who are building MVC apps in Visual Basic. It is time for both of you to stop it.


My feeling about this is the same as Web Forms’s fate: it’s just time to move on. Besides, I’ve always felt that Visual Basic is a transitionary language. It’s something cool to learn but once you learned the real language *cough* C# *cough*, you’ll forget about it.
