What would be the best way to translate my VBA and Userforms knowledge into being able to create apps and web apps?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/vba

Our great sponsors
  • Onboard AI - ChatGPT with full context of any GitHub repo.
  • WorkOS - The modern API for authentication & user identity.
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • React

    The library for web and native user interfaces.

    Web apps are much less about the languages than they are about the ecosystem of build tools. If you want to simplify your approach I'd suggest learning with something like deno, which supports TypeScript out of the box. The development is actually done in VSCode. UserForm creation in HTML, CSS and JS is quite taxing for beginners generally, but I believe ReactJS likely has the easiest learning curve with numerous component libraries to choose from to help development.
