Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Ever wonder if you could program? If you’d be good at it? If you’d enjoy it? Get this book, and find out. It’s about the simplest beginning programming book we’ve seen: It assumes you know, well, basically nothing. It’s in full color. It’s a pleasure to read. And you’ll build actual software: a miniature web browser; a simple database application; even a one-click, web-connected weather tracker you might actually use!

The price is right. And the book’s CD-ROM contains Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition and Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition: all the software you need to write full-fledged programs that store, work with, and present data. (As the author puts it, “not a time-bomb edition, a demo, or a feature limited version”: this is software you can use forever.) Nice job on this one, Microsoft! Bill Camarda, from the February 2006 Read Only
