in thread Are we a dying breed?

Just randomly pick couple sentences ;-)

"the same reason that other interpreted languages are not"

You are not saying that you never heard of VB, actually people even taught Quick Basic. So go find a different reason.

"but the buzz word 'CGI' never implied perl to me"

Bravo!!!I gave you the credit for this. At last some Perl guys showed the correct understanding of CGI. CGI was a protocol, until it was totally misunderstood by some other perl guys, and abused it as the name for a module that was not even slightly related to CGI.

The term of CGI was misused in Perl, but was the buzz word for Perl's ability to deliver largely static web content, which is not relevent any more in today's fast advancing IT environment.

    I think you have a different view of "college" than most people here. The only place I have ever encountered serious courses in VB are at the community college (in continuing education courses) and at two-year ITT-Tech type places.

    I know that my undergraduate school used to teach Pascal as an initial language, but has now moved to Java.

      I agree with fizbin...the local community collge starts out with Visual Basic and the only other language they provide classes for is Java.
