VB2Java.COM is the brain-child of David Jung and Tom Taulli. Both have been programming in different languages for years. With the boom of the Internet and everyone talking, thinking, and testing Java, they both embarked on learning Java in their own fashion. As it turned out, both learned that each other were working on course-ware to help Visual Basic developers make the transition from VB programming to Java programming. A lot of their material overlapped while other material was completely unique. So rather than recreating the wheel, they decided to join forces and create the organization, VB2Java.COM.
