TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
The one I ploughed through last year was Que's "Special Edition Using
Visual Basic 6." While it can be a bit heavy at times, it is
thorough. And it will give you a bit of an intro to some of the
related programming tools like Visual Basic for Applications and
Visual Basic Script as well.
> In the interests of becoming a more "techie" tech writer, I'd like
> Visual Basic. I didn't find anything in the archives. Here are some
> books for beginners that I've found:
> * Beginning Visual Basic 6 by Peter Wright
> * Microsoft Visual Basic Professional Step-by-Step by Michael
> * Visual Basic 6 for Dummies by Wally Wang
> * Learn to Program with Visual Basic 6 by John Smiley
> I would appreciate any recommendations on these or other books on
> topic. Thanks,
