I need to learn some visual basic or other programming starting now slowly.
The main purpose is to create a program that is able to receive data packets from a network connection of some sort and make use of the data packets to turn them into information that is presentable via GUI. And also i also have to try to make the program comes with a database structure which can keep a list of stuff and with variables on it like Amount left , amount sold...
its for my school's IT team project on writting a program to help record sells of products by simply receiving data packets from each shops stuff like that.
I heard that this can be done by Vbasic. but i wonder what other language can simply do this ? I have a programming master doing the connection bit that of coz he's not a student but he say he can help me with that part with his free time. just that i have to make the other side of the software myself to talk to his data.
Besides that i have to learn DEX programming as well a coding that used for talking to electronics stuff like vending machines i really need to learn those and Vb so that both actually can talk together.
The reason i post here is that DEX is really a rare programming is there anyone here familiar with it ?
So any place to start from scratch where to go ?
like developer kit ?
All help are welcome ! thanks a lot
