What is VB.Net?

(VB.NET) is an object-oriented computer language that can be viewed as an evolution of Microsoft's Visual Basic (VB) implemented on the Microsoft .NET framework. Its introduction has been controversial, as significant changes were made that broke backward compatibility with VB and caused a rift within the developer community that may or may not be resolved with the introduction of Visual Studio 2005.

The vast majority of VB.NET developers use Visual Studio .NET, although SharpDevelop provides an open-source alternative. The creation of open-source tools for VB.NET development have been slow compared to C#, although the Mono development platform provides an implementation of VB.NET-specific libraries and is working on a compiler, as well as the Windows Forms GUI library.

Similar to the virtual machine requirement of other programming languages, applications written in VB.NET require the .NET framework to execute.

What it Takes to be an Employable IT Graduate in the Philippines

I just can't paste the article I read from TESDA but here's their summary

* IT unemployment is basically a problem of supply-demand mismatch
* Educational and training institutions in the Philippines produced an oversupply of computer science / engineering graduates and technicians that could not be absorbed by the labor market
* Demands would be in the area of customer contact centers, medical and legal transcription, animation, architectural and engineering design services, accounting and financial services
* Close public-private sector partnership would be vital especially in policy/ direction retting, curriculum standards development, quality assurance and teachers/ trainors qualifications
* TESDA's Unified TVET Program Registration and Accreditation System (UTPRAS) must be strengthened for quality assurance

LASER PRINTERS and breathing problems

Laser printers emit a lot of toner dust, which contains carbon and solvents, and quite a few people are sensitive to it. You can smell it when the printer is on, and especially on freshly printed paper. You may notice wheeziness, coughing, sneezing, etc. Some acquaintances at copy centers and service bureaus complain of headaches, and suspect the toner dust. I haven't personally seen any studies, so I don't know for sure, but err on the side of caution. NCR paper ('carbonless' paper) can also cause wheeziness. Good ventilation, drawing air away from the operator, seems to be the answer.
