VB.NET is known as Visual Basic.NET. VB.NET is a simple, object-oriented programming language developed by Microsoft in 2002, and it is the successor of Visual Basic 6 (VB6) language, that implement on the .NET Framework. One of the best features of the VB.NET language is that its program can also run on mono (multi-platform), which means that it is not restricted to run on the Windows operating system; moreover, it can also run on Linux and Mac OS. The Application built using the VB.NET is much secure, robust, high-performance, and easy to develop.
There is some VB.NET application:
- Console Application
- Mobile application
- Windows forms Application
- Window control library
- .Net website
C# is an open-source, general-purpose, object-oriented programming language that was developed by Microsoft in the year 2000, which runs on the .NET Framework. Furthermore, this language is also got certified as a standard programming language by the ECMA and ISO. The main purpose of using the C# programming language is that it is used to share information as well as services across all web services. It also enables the developer to develop a robust, secure, and portable application easily.
Some of the application are listed below:
- Window and web-based application or services
- Distributed application
- Database application
