Synopsis:

* Fully updated, Visual Studio Orcas 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 Orcas. New emphasis on Visual Studio Team System in Orcas brings this complex set of tools to the forefront. 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.

Book I: Visual Studio Overview

Book II: Getting Started with Visual Studio

Book III: Building Vista Applications with Visual Studio Orcas

Book IV: Data Access

Book V: Coding

Book VI: Other IDE Stuff

* The website with the book will include all the code and applications.
