To what extent do you think you'll update the site?

I recently went through a similar process updating a 2003 website to current standards and also developed an API version, all with VB.

I started with a hosted VM then went to a dedicated server, keeping the VM for development.

I bought books on VB in ASP.Net 4.5 but found that they weren't as basic as I needed them to be - it was easier to use my old books on v2.0 and v3.5 to get started and then move on as I developed new features, finally swapping to an API basis for the most advanced versions of the site.

I would recommend you get VS2019 as a start - is there any reason why you can't move from VS2015?

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
