Overview

Many beginning programming books try to teach the reader three things at the same time: how to write a program, how to write a program using a particular programming language, and how to write a program using a particular compiler. To avoid this triple source of potential confusion, Visual Basic 2005 Express: Now Playing provides a short primer on how programming works in general, regardless of the programming language used. Once readers understand the general principles behind computer programming, the book then teaches readers how to use the Visual Basic Express program itself and how to write programs using the Visual Basic language. The CD includes numerous short source code examples that you can run and modify, and movies that show how to accomplish specific tasks with Visual Basic 2005 Express.

This reference provides a short primer on how programming works, regardless of the programming language. Once readers understand the general principles behind computer programming, the book then teaches how to use and write programs in Visual Basic Express. Includes CD. Consumable.
