Written for programmers with backgrounds in C++, Visual Basic , Java or other high-level languages, this book applies the Deitels' signature Live-Code approach to teaching programming and explores Microsoft's Visual Basic .NET language in depth. Visual Basic .NET concepts are presented in the context of fully-tested programs, complete with syntax highlighting, detailed line-by-line descriptions and program outputs. The book features 192 Live-Code programs that contain 20,337 lines of proven Visual Basic .NET program code. In addition, the book includes 319 programming tips that help you build applications that are portable, reusable and optimized for performance.

Start with condensed discussions of the Visual Studio .NET IDE, control structures, procedures and arrays. Then move rapidly to more advanced topics, including Windows Forms, ADO .NET, ASP .NET, ASP .NET Web services, network programming and XML processing. Along the way you will enjoy the Deitels' classic treatment of object-based and object-oriented programming. When you are finished, you will have everything you need to build next-generation Windows applications, Web applications and XML Web services.

The Barnes & Noble Review
More than anyone else, experienced developers know the value of learning from real code examples, thoroughly explained, with fully illustrated outputs. That’s one reason they’re likely to flock to DEITEL & Associates’ VB .NET for Experienced Programmers. If you’re migrating from VB6 or any other language to VB.NET, this ought to be the first book you read -- and it might just be the only one you’ll need.

The authors begin with an expert 80-page overview of the .NET platform and Visual Studio .NET themselves -- everything you’ll need to get rolling fast. Building on what you already know from experience, you’ll move quickly through VB.NET’s fundamentals -- so you can rapidly get to the techniques that make it so powerful.

There are 21,000 lines of tested (and downloadable) code here, enough to illuminate every form of VB.NET development. That includes Windows applications with Windows Forms; ASP.NET multi-tier applications and web services; database applications using SQL and ADO.NET; even wireless .NET programming using Microsoft’s Mobile Internet Toolkit. From multithreading to multimedia, regular expressions to data structures and collection classes, it’s here -- all covered with the precision and relevance that made Deitel books legendary.

This book is intended for experienced programmers. I enjoy this book because of its wide-spread detailed coverage of all advanced topics in a realistic approach. Apart from that the 559 illustrations and figures help every one to get a clear picture about the concept. The way of presenting the matter in the book is excellent. Nice work! Using the .NET Framework, Microsoft Visual Basic developers can build robust applications that were very difficult to write in previous versions of Visual Basic. Visual Basic .NET is the result of a significant rebuild of Visual Basic for the Microsoft .NET Framework. There are a number of changes that make Visual Basic .NET easier to use, more powerful than Visual Basic 6.0, and give it the kind of access to system resources that in the past required the use of languages like C++. This book provides all the essentials of VB.NET with example-rich practical manner. In Particular the explanation about Object-oriented Programming concepts, GUI concepts, Multithreading, ADO.NET, ASP.NET and ASP.NET Web Services is outstanding. The usage of wireless applications is rising rapidly. Within few years, the number of people browsing the Web from wireless devices will exceed the number browsing from desktop computers. This book provides all the details about the Mobile Internet Tool Kit. They introduce mobile Web controls and mobile Web Forms that can be used to create ASP .NET applications that target a wide range of mobile devices. This book also covers device-specific rendering and how to consume a Web service from a mobile Web application. 'Terrific VB.NET book which explores both Technical content and Programming info, by which readers can gain everything to fabricate next generation of .NET Applications.' Key Features of this Book: 1.Realistic, example-rich coverage of: Objects, Structured exception handling, Delegates, Inheritance, Interfaces, Polymorphism and Overloading. 2.Detailed coverage of Mobile Internet Tool Kit. 3.Comprehensive coverage of advanced topics such as Windows Forms, ASP.NET, ADO.NET, ASP.NET Web services, network programming and XML Processing. 4.Featuring 192 Live-code programs and 319 Programming Tips.

Whether you're an experienced Visual Basic .NET professional or just starting to explore its features, this book is for you. Comprehensive, coherent, and (Yes!) fun to read, it explains every major aspect of the language. Not just by describing the what, how and why, but by demonstrating - with elegant yet nontrivial examples - dozens of concepts and facilities. The sample code is a treasury of tools and techniques that every serious Visual Basic professional would be well-advised to invest in. They are always enlightening - and often entertaining. If you think that Visual Basic .NET is merely a poor cousin to C++ and C#, read this book and think again. You CAN do that with Visual Basic .NET, and this excellent textbook will show you how.
