I have been developing for about 4 years now with my primary language being C#. My first language was Visual Basic though. The thing is through my journey I noticed more and more C# examples, posts, tutorials, etc. and made my switch to C# within the first 2 months I started programming. Ever since then the trend seems to me (my opinion) that there is more and more C# and less VB.
One other thing that kind of pushed this assumption was when Microsoft launched WP7, allowing only C# developers the opportunity to develop applications for their platform. I know now they support VB, but it seemed reluctant and more like they were forced to.
Also I noticed a lot of developers, on these sites specifically, asking advice on how to migrate their applications to C# or how to convince upper management to make the switch.
Visual Basic is rather old now (started back in 1991) with its fair share of updates, including it's main update to VisualBasic.net in 2003. The syntax in my opinion is too different to be helpful when learning other languages. C# made learning PHP and Java a breeze.
So back to my original question:
Is Visual Basic a dying language?
p.s. I couldn't stand the fact that you never ended statements with a semicolon just a new line. It's like a sentence with no punctuation mark.
