Overview

A thorough revision to the Visual Studio 2005 All-In-One Desk Reference For Dummies makes this the ideal book for new programmers or Java programmers looking to get up and running with Visual Studio. The book will be a comprehensive, value-priced reference for the entire Visual Studio 2005.  Microsoft’s catch-phrase for Visual Studio 2005 is personal productivity. The goal of personal productivity is to allow the developer to work at a higher level of abstraction. The goal of this book is to show the reader how to build applications using these productivity features of VS. As a result, language syntax and programming constructs are de-emphasized in favor of showing the user how to let VS generate the code.

This book takes a layered approach similar to how most applications are architected. When developing a new application, developers often divide up the work for the user interface, service layer (data access), and domain classes (coding). Whether there is one developer playing all three roles, or three developers doing each, this approach allows the reader to easily reference the layer they are constructing. Minibooks include:

Book I: Visual Studio 2005 Overview.

Book II: Getting Started with Visual Studio.

Book III: Building Applications with Visual Studio 2005.

Book IV: Getting Acquainted with Data Access.

Book V: Coding.

Book VI: Going the Extra Mile.

Book VII: Extending the Family.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Visual Studio has never been more powerful. And with Visual Studio 2005 All-in-One Desk Reference for Dummies, it's never been easier, either.

This book combines the classic For Dummies style (friendly, accurate, fun) with the newer All-in-One format (big, comprehensive, modular).

It's organized as seven "mini-books" in one. There's one on production-quality development techniques (including Microsoft's vaunted "smart clients." There's another on data access (from strongly typed DataSets to XML). There's one on coding tools and techniques (from snippets to exceptions, debugging to the Enterprise Library). A "Going the Extra Mile" mini-book illuminates Visual Studio's powerful build automation tools, new deployment options, and source control.

If you've seen an earlier edition, you can already see how heavily this one's been updated. Very little has been left untouched. And wherever Microsoft's delivered new productivity features, you can bet you'll learn how to take advantage of them. Bill Camarda, from the December 2006 Read Only
