telling someone to learn vb-script as a first language is pointless :|, telling them to learn vb is pointless fullstop. They need something that can be portable.. you don't want them to be stuck having to use windows and not venturing out into the real world.. but only the world the corporate demon ms wants you to go into..
secondly you can't just point someone to a link and say learn this. It never works.. You have to find out what they want to focus on first of all.. then point them in the right direction to get the infromation that will aide in the learning process
and pay for an apprenticeship lol.. the employer is suppose to give people an apprenticeship and pay them below minimum wage in 90% of the cases
The wise make mistakes, the fools repeat them
When you have eliminated the impossible, that which remains, however improbable, must be the truth
