Visual Basic 6.0: the language of the young minds !

For a long time it was considered that VB6 programmers have an older age. A new study shows the age distribution of the developers. Curiously, increasingly more young people learn Visual Basic 6.0. The figure below shows the age trend for Visual Basic 6.0 in 2014.

Three independent studies have been made in which more than half of the programmers have ages between 18 and 34 years. About 35% of them have ages between 18 and 24 years. It seems that 14-15% of them (programmers younger than 18 years) learn VB6 right now!
