Overview

CodeNotes provides the most succinct, accurate, and speedy way for a developer to ramp up on a new technology or language. Unlike other programming books, CodeNotes drills down to the core aspects of a technology, focusing on the key elements needed in order to understand it quickly and implement it immediately. It is a unique resource for developers, filling the gap between comprehensive manuals and pocket references.

CodeNotes for VB.NET illustrates the major changes in Visual Basic with the new .NET edition, emphasizing the Common Language Runtime (CLR), syntax changes, Windows Forms, assemblies, new object oriented programming features, threading, and a survey of new .NET technologies such as ADO.NET, ASP.NET, and SOAP. This book will help any level of VB developer understand the power of VB.NET and learn the necessary techniques to transition from VB6 to VB.NET.

This edition of CodeNotes includes:
-A global overview of a technology and explanation of what problems it can be used to solve
-Real-world examples
-"How and Why" sections that provide hints, tricks, workarounds, and tips on what should be taken advantage of or avoided
-Instructions and classroom-style tutorials throughout from expert trainers and software developers

Every CodeNotes title is written and reviewed by a team of commercial software developers and technology experts. See "About the Authors" at the beginning of the book for more information.

The Barnes & Noble Review
The first five pages of CodeNotes for VB.NET contain the most intelligent explanation we've seen of what VB.NET means to VB programmers -- and by now we've seen plenty of them. If the rest of this 200-page book were as good, we thought, this book would be an absolute must-read. Well, it is. It's like being in a live training session with an instructor who knows exactly what's most important, anticipates your questions, and makes the most of every minute.

Take the coverage of VB.NET's revamped exception handling. The authors pinpoint the problems with VB6's implementation, concisely introduce VB.NET's new approach, illuminate its power (not always intuitively obvious), and show how to use VB.NET to handle the specific types of errors developers encounter most often.

Or threading: VB6 protected you from the grubby details, but VB.NET's additional power comes with thread safety issues. The authors walk through updating a VB6 program for VB.NET multithreading, pointing out where you might go awry, why thread problems are tough to detect, and exactly how to avoid them. And they point you to even more detailed coverage on the book's web site.

Whatever VB.NET books you own, you'll want this one, too. (Bill Camarda)
