Thousands of developers have gotten started with Visual Basic .NET, but most aren’t building new web applications with VB.NET yet. They’re in for a pleasant surprise: The .NET platform makes it easy to jump from the desktop to the Web. Since much web functionality is built into the .NET classes, building web apps is much like building desktop apps: You use Microsoft’s classes to do as much of the work as possible. Better yet, VS.NET brings the familiar visual, forms-based metaphor to web development -- finally!
If you’re ready to leverage your VB.NET skills in web programming, check out Beginning VB.NET Web Programming in Visual Studio: Essential Skills for VB.NET Programmers. It’ll help you get rolling fast, using all the visual tools and techniques you’re already comfortable with. It covers every aspect of VB.NET web programming: data access; state management; security; performance and scalability; error handling and debugging; XML; and, especially, practical development with ASP.NET Web Forms and controls. (Nope: you don’t need ASP experience.)
From start to finish, the book is full of code and step-by-step examples -- including a complete case study application. Finish that, and it’s official: You’re now a web developer. Bill Camarda
