Greetings all,
          I am new to programming and development in general and have found
that I am having a large problem in learning Visual Studio. I am wanting to
work in ASP.net using either VB or C# and want to work on developing web
apps. I have some experience via working as a copy monkey for coding "copying
from sheet to code" so I am familiar with the IDE to an extent. I have taken
a course in "basic asp.net" but that left me with more questions than
answers. I have read a number of books but none can teach me what to do when
I am starring at a blank screen. does anyone have any suggestions as to where
to go from here?
