John Clark Craig's programming experiences and interests go back quite a ways. In 1974 he was programming a DEC PDP8E attached to a teletype and running a paper tape loaded version of FOCAL, a simple programming language similar to BASIC. Over the years, John programmed in just about every version of the BASIC language available, and authored several books on the subject along the way. During John's career as a full-time Software Engineer, he has worked on several fascinating energy and environmental projects. Currently, he's enjoying his software guru position working with a small team of bright R&D engineers as they create the next generation of high-tech self-erecting towers for the world's largest wind turbines.

    Good reading and reference

    A few years ago, I needed to write some VBA code for Access and happened across the 'Access Cookbook'. I was delighted with the wealth of information and the problem/solution oriented approach. So when the 'Visual Basic 2005 Cookbook' came out I immediately grabbed a copy. I was not disappointed. As an experienced programmer, I didn't need a need an introduction to programming, instead I wanted a quick introduction to the new features of .NET and the Cookbook provides it without wasting your time. As promised, the cookbook provides hundreds of problems and solutions. Do you need to know how to handle strings efficiently? Do you need to know how to handle files or graphics objects, its all in here. And while it is not an introduction to programming, it provides so much material that beginners will learn a tremendous amount from the examples in this book. The discussions of the code presented is clean and easy to understand. There is a chapter on database interactions as well as a chapter on web development and ASP. This is a book that you will want to skim straight through and then keep as a reference and you will be sure to refer to it over and over. Highly recommended.

    Excellent VB.Net 2005 resource!

    I've only had this book for a short while, but I'm finding it MUCH more useful than the many other VB.Net books I've got on my shelf. Sometimes it's hard to figure out what function to use to do things in the .NET framework, and this book solves that problem very well. I highly recommend it to any VB.Net programmer, especially if you struggle at all moving up from VB6.
