Meet the Author

Thearon Willis is a senior consultant with over 20 years of programming experience. He started writing applications using the Basic language in 1980 and later moved on to Visual Basic and finally to Visual Basic.Net. He began working with databases in 1987 and has been hooked on writing database applications ever since. He has experience with SQL Server, Oracle, and DB2 but works with SQL Server on a daily basis. Thearon has programmed in several other languages, some of which include C++, Assembler, Pascal, and COBOL. However, he enjoys Visual Basic.Net the best as it provides the features needed to quickly build Windows and Web applications as well as components and Web Services. He currently develops intranet applications, Web Services, and server-side and client-side utilities using Visual Basic.Net. Most of these applications and utilities are database-driven and make use of XML and XSL.

    Very disappointed - WROX generally produces excellent material however this one is terrible. This one is not recommended for any purpose except a book burning - they are coming out with a new one in August 2006 hopefully it will be better.
