    Exclamation Looking For Visual Basic Bump Start

    Hey guys, I was wondering if there's anywhere I could ask for a task to do and if they may pay me for doing it, I have only just started to look in to it so ANY info you guys can give me would be much appreciated

    --- Looking for ---
    - Told to make a program and what it should do
    - No major deadlines
    - Easy to start with and progressing
    - Not having to pay them (as I'm 16 I don't have much money to spend)
    - It has to be done in Visual Basic 6.0 as its all I have learnt so far
    - friendly and kind "Boss"


    I know this is asking a lot but I'm in S6 now and I'm doing really well with the work I just want a bit of a challenge so I don't start to degrade in my programming

    Thanks

    Sadly, not many people will contract to an unexperienced worker, but what I can do is give you ideas... Make Visual Basic copies of common programs like Notepad, Calculator, and Paint. Visual Basic is slow and impotent, so try making encoders, as it would be the easiest language to make it in. Screensavers are also rather fun to make, but I don't know if you've already done this or what, so I'm kind of at an impasse.

    You might also want to consider learning VB.net since it is newer and VB6 is pretty old. The developer tools for VB6 have already been EOL by Microsoft. The more languages you know the more versatile you are and the more jobs you can find.
