In my class (college level) we are doing some semi advance stuff with VS using VB.net, but is this class even useful in the real world?

Yes and debateable.

Yes there are many apps and such made with VS.

As to VB, one of my longest running projects is in VB. I won't go into the other dozens of apps our office wrote and supports but this one to me is a fine example of where the language rarely matters.

It's a factory test app that a major company uses to do their final acceptance testing at the end of the production run. The reason for VB was to make it easy on the next developer to modify. No deep dive experience required.

As you gain experience you should learn that only those that are less flexible will push any specific language.

Thank you. I really like VS and I find VB rather easy (at least the stuff we do in class is), I just always read in forums about people using Java and the c's.

But thank you all the same, your reply was helped boost my faith in VB and VS.
