VB6 Tutorial Overview and Plan

Purpose

This page is meant to provide a handy index of the tutorial, as well as the planned direction of items yet to be written.

Update Schedule

Ideally, I'll be updating this page as the status changes for each post. I'll be building 5 to 7 new lessons per week, some of which have one or more sample projects attached, so it may take a bit longer to get all of them done and submitted.

Even though I am a "supermod" on this site, I don't have the ability to approve my own posts. That's up to the admins. Not to worry, though. Newly submitted articles are placed in a queue, each author has one article per day reviewed, accepted, and released for consumption.

As an example, I currently have five (5) articles in the queue. This morning there were six, but one was accepted and released, leaving five in the queue, to be processed in the coming days. Make sense?
