This book will be valuable for every VB programmer. But, with Microsoft officially ending support for Visual Basic 6, it’ll be especially helpful to those who are finally making the jump to .NET programming with VB 2005.
Author Evangelos Petroutsos has been writing about VB for years, and his “VB6 to VB 2005” coverage shows you exactly what you’re in for. But that’s only one aspect of this comprehensive VB 2005 introduction. You’ll find everything here from basic event-driven programming to objects, rich client and web software to .NET 2.0 framework functions, data-driven applications to web services.
This edition’s been revised far more extensively than VB 2005 itself. Among its 12 new chapters: a complete introduction to encryption; new coverage of drawing and images; and a full section on “fit and finish” issues, from effective interface design through deployment.
