Programming Visual Basic 2008: Build .Net 3.5 Applications with Microsoft's Rad Tool for Businessby Tim Patrick
Synopses & Reviews
Ever since Visual Basic was merged into .NET, it's become the core language for creating business applications with Windows. The latest version, VB 2008, is even more useful — and provides even more incentive for migrating from VB 6. All it lacks is a good book on how to harness its power. Programming Visual Basic 2008 fills the void.
Programming Visual Basic 2008 is ideal for VB 6 programmers who are ready to move to .NET, as well as VB.NET programmers who wish to improve their project-focused software development skills. Programming novices and developers coming from other languages will find the book valuable because of its language instruction and project design knowledge.
This tutorial-style book teaches how to build applications using Microsoft's popular RAD (rapid application development) tool for business.
