Overview

Created by world-renowned programming instructors Paul and Harvey Deitel, Visual Basic 2008 How to Program, Fourth Edition introduces all facets of the Visual Basic 2008 language hands-on, through hundreds of working programs.

This book has been thoroughly updated to reflect the major innovations Microsoft has incorporated in Visual Basic 2008 and .NET 3.5; all discussions and sample code have been carefully audited against the newest Visual Basic language specification. The many new platform features covered in depth in this edition include: LINQ data queries, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), ASP.NET Ajax and the Microsoft Ajax Library, Silverlight-based rich Internet application development, and creating Web services with Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). New language features introduced in this edition: object anonymous types, object initializers, implicitly typed local variables and arrays, delegates, lambda expressions, and extension methods. A series of appendices provide essential programming reference material on topics ranging from number systems to the Visual Studio Debugger, UML 2 to Unicode and ASCII. AUDIENCE: Appropriate for anyone interested in learning programming with Visual Basic 2008.
