Want to write faster, more robust VB 2005 code -- and do it more efficiently? You’ll love Francesco Balena’s Programming Microsoft Visual Basic 2005.
Today, VB 2005’s generics, custom events, operator overloading and other key enhancements offer immense opportunities -- if you know how and when to use them. That’s Balena’s goal here: to help you master the language, choose the right tools, manage their trade-offs, and integrate them optimally.
He covers the core language in exceptional detail, plus crucial .NET foundation classes: memory management, serialization, threading, reflection, PInvoke, COM Interop. You’ll find extensive coverage of the new My Namespace, and a full chapter on .NET regular expressions. Finally, unlike most authors of VB books, Balena also shows how to take full advantage of Visual Studio 2005: from templates to refactoring to macros. For serious VB developers, this book’s indispensable. Bill Camarda, from the March 2006 Read Only
