I'm wanting to learn to use VB with Razor pages. I really only do this as a hobby, although I would be glad to get paid if my
services were ever wanted, but I can't for the life of me find really but one little page about razor and VB and no other files
or examples.. Can someone please point me in the right direction? Are there any good books about database and n-tier dev
with VB and razor? MVC with VB and razor?
Thanks in advance.

You can refer to this link that talks about using Visual Basic to build the Basic knowledge of ASP.NET MVC 5 Web application
And here a demo about create a basic mvc project with unit tests(Visual basic).

I'm wanting to learn to use VB with Razor pages.
VB is not supported in Razor Pages. There don't seem to be any plans to officially change this: https://github.com/aspnet/AspNetCore/issues/2738
I'm responsible for the MVC 5 VB translations that are linked to in the previous reply. They don't get much traffic, despite being linked to from the C# version that forms part of the official MS documentation. As an experiment, I added an extra tutorial
to the series, and published both a VB and a C# version. The C# version gets 20 times the traffic that the VB version gets. I suspect that the MS team found that their previous VB tutorials get very little traffic, making it very difficult to justify the investment
in time to create an maintain any others. That also seems to be behind the decision not to bother with VB support in ASP.NET Core.
No one produced a Web Pages book in VB. And you wouldn't want to use Web Pages for n-tier applications.
Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Thanks so much. I'm only basically doing this for a hobby, so I will probably
just learn Webforms then where I know I can use VB and I'm assuming
there are more examples. I've never really understood why MS quit
or basically quit supporting VB scripting and ASP.Net. There were
loads of VB programmers back in the day when I worked with the same
until VB6 and after than it's become way too complicated. I might have to
go with another IDE and environment such as Xojo just to make it so much
Thanks again. I really appreciate it.
