Overview

Perhaps you've had a taste of .NET programming and are hungry for more advanced coverage of the new Visual Basic. Or perhaps you've mastered VB-6 and are ready to move to the .NET framework and the capabilities of Visual Basic .NET. Either way, Visual Basic .NET Developer's Handbook gives you what you want, and need.

If your goals involve web programming, this book offers detailed instruction that will help you achieve them. You'll learn to use Visual Basic .NET to build and deploy XML-based Web services, create ASP.NET-based web applications, and implement support for mobile devices. As you progress, you'll master some of the trickier aspects of form design, solve tough database connectivity challenges, and secure your applications with built-in .NET features.

If you're a Windows programmer who knows VB-6 inside and out, you'll find many compelling reasons for making the shift to VB.NET. This book provides the specialized coverage you need to do it quickly and effectively. You'll learn how the newest Visual Basic lets you build dramatically better Windows applications. You may cringe at the thought of mastering a new file I/O methodology, for example, but wait until you see all that streams has to offer, beginning with faster data access. And, you'll also learn new, more -effective approaches to building custom Windows services and controls.

Visual Basic .NET is at the forefront of the convergence of Windows and web programming. Whatever your focus, whatever your career path, Visual Basic .NET Developer's Handbook is the resource best suited to helping you navigate this convergence—skillfully and successfully.

    DON'T BUY THIS BOOK!!!

    This book has many examples that don't work. The authors don't bother to tell you in their programs which packages you need to import, so you have to do a lot of research yourself, which defeats the point of the book. Also, there are a lot of variables created in the examples that don't point to anything and don't work because they are not validly declared. If 0 stars was available on this site, I would rate it as such.
