Catching Fire: Visual Studio 2010

After a few years of making creative games in Alice, I thought it was time to move up to the next level. Although I had the feel of the flow of a program, and I knew some of the objects used, I was very intimidated moving up, and very unsure what to do. Visual Studio is a professional environment made by Microsoft to create apps for all of their platforms with all sorts of languages. My dad bought me another text book, Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 Step by Step by Michel Halvorson, about creating programs in Visual Studio with Visual Basic as the language. Visual Basic helps the developer by having simpler syntax. (Syntax is virtually the grammar of coding.) After studying and completing the exercises in the book, my arsenal of tools became well equipped to start creating games for Windows.
