Overview

Have you noticed that the majority of .NET books seem intent on hiding you from real-world code? You can buy a 1,500-page draft excluder, study it intensively for a month, and still be none the wiser as to how to write basic programs. This book isn't like that.

You'll discover ways to obtain Microsoft code and save hours of development time; you'll uncover the truth behind creating fast programs that run on anything from PDAs to mobile phones to microwaves; you'll be exposed to a hidden .NET language; and you'll find out why you need to know at least some C# (and then be given a cheat course on the basics.)

The useful code and .NET programming tips having been personally developed by the author over the past three years—these aren't updated Visual Basic 6 code scraps. Everything within these pages has been created and tested for VB .NET and ASP.NET.

    Great book

    I totally recommend this book. As a new developer to .NET (after living in the VB6 world for the past couple of years), I found Karl's style of writing refreshing, he gets right to the point. There are great examples and tricks in this book, I even have a monthly reminder to open it up and scan down the index to see if theres anything that will help me in my current projects - and there usually is. I totally recommend this book ***** (5 stars)
