Get mentored the Visual Basic way

Every language has its own way of doing things. Visual Basic is no different. Our mentors will help you learn to think like a Visual Basic developer and how to write idiomatic code in Visual Basic. Once you've solved an exercise, submit it to our volunteer team, and they'll give you hints, ideas, and feedback on how to make it feel more like what you'd normally see in Visual Basic - they'll help you discover the things you don't know that you don't know.
