VB Scripting

I like scripting in visual basic. Probably because, visual basic is one of the first programming languages I played with. It's easy to use and follow, just about any Windows computer can run vb scripts without necessarily having to install some required program or framework, and it can be a lot of fun. I really enjoy creating HTML applications(HTA) using mainly vb scripting and some good ol' HTML. 

Here's a few resources you might enjoy.

VbsEdit - An great program for scripting in visual basic, plus the download includes HTAEdit. Awesome for creating HTAs.

MS Visual Studio - More than just basic programming is available with Visual Studio. I would try the Express(free) editions.

UltraEdit - This looks interesting but I have not tried it as of yet. Not free.

MSDN Visual Basic Programming Guide - Exactly what it says it is.

TechNet script center - A great resource for creating HTAs.

HTA Helpomatic -  An HTA to help you create your own HTAs.
