Hi, how do i get started with building a module using Visual Basic? Do i need to use C#?

I think it's not possible because we are using ClaySharp, and it showed some flaws in dynamic capabilities of VB. So yes you will need C#.

Seriously no VB? I tried making a module anyway, and the only thing I ran up against is that the view engine is not looking for vbhtml files.

Yes. C# only.

Well.. is that strictly true? To conform using Clay you cant use VB... but a module is just a mvc area, so just dont use clay?

You could probably make it work, but you'd probably need to make some pretty heavy changes.
