Visual Basic .NET will integrate state of the art programming language features, including inheritance, polymorphism, and garbage collection. The book will explain these key concepts in a simple and practical way. Web Forms and Web Controls usher in an elegant way to make dynamic web pages. The book will cover these topics with how-to code examples and projects. One of the newest developments in Internet programming is the use of XML and the SOAP communication protocol. .NET Web Services harness these two technologies, and will be covered in some of the later sections of the book.

The Barnes & Noble Review
Visual Basic.NET will transform the way longtime VB developers work -- and it makes Visual Basic extraordinarily attractive to anyone looking for a powerful next-generation web development platform. Whichever group you're in, SAMS Teach Yourself Visual Basic.NET Web Programming in 21 Days gives you a high-speed jump-start with the language, and the broader .NET environment it integrates with.

Expert VB developer-author Peter Aitken and enterprise developer Phil Syme organize VB.NET web programming into 21 hands-on lessons, plus two detailed bonus projects: a web portal and a tool for administering it.

In "Week 1," you'll focus on ASP.NET and its advanced forms and controls, which enable programmers to build sophisticated web applications visually, and incorporate powerful validation, database access, and user interface features without breaking a sweat. "Week 2" starts with an introduction to VB.NET's XML support, then presents in-depth coverage of ADO.NET data access and walks you through creating a full-fledged web service, from start to finish.

Then, it's on to advanced topics: finding and consuming web services; moving legacy code to .NET; securing and deploying your web applications; and finally, architecting web applications for maximum performance and robustness. (Bill Camarda)
