Modern software programming languages (like C# and VB.NET) utilize a human-friendly syntax that is not directly understandable by computers. Software commands in this human-friendly syntax are referred to as Source Code. Before a computer can execute the source code, special programs called compilers must rewrite it into machine instructions, also known as object code. This process (commonly referred to simply as “compilation”) can be done explicitly or implicitly.
.NET libraries that have served you well for years can prove equally useful in today’s new environments—provided you’re willing to expend the migration effort needed.
