Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Doing Objects in Visual Basic 2005 is one of the few books that I’ve seen that lays the proper object-oriented foundation to make new Visual Basic.NET developers as well as VB6 veterans successful in moving to the .NET Framework.”

–Paul Ballard, President, Rochester Consulting Partnership, Inc.

 

“Deborah Kurata’s Doing Objects in Visual Basic 2005 is salvation for every programmer beached on the forbidding isle of .NET object-oriented programming. ‘Right this way,’ she says, leading you confidently into that vaguely menacing interior. Step follows step. Suddenly the daunting and unfamiliar become doable and commonplace. You’re productive again. My goodness, you’re actually enjoying yourself!”

–Ward Bell, V.P., Product Management, IdeaBlade, Inc.

 

“When is comes to advice on programming objects in Visual Basic, nobody could be better qualified than Deborah Kurata. She’s been doing Doing Objects since VB4, and she doesn’t let us down as we move our classic VB code to the Microsoft.NET platform. From initial analysis and design, through to the final implementation, you’ll find everything you need here to take on the Visual Basic 2005 development environment. This book is a must have for every VB.NET developer!”

–Kel Good, MCT, MCITP, MCPD, Custom Software Development Inc., (www.customsoftware.ca)

 

“I’ve long been frustrated that I couldn’t recommend a book on object-oriented fundamentals in .NET. Sure, there were plenty of books on OO syntax. But what good is explanation of syntax if you don’t already understand the concepts? At last, we have the successor to the Doing Objects series for classic VB, from which so many of us learned how to think about objects and object design, completely rewritten for .NET. If you’re a VB 2005 developer who needs to add object orientation to your skill set, this is the book you need.”

–Billy Hollis, author/consultant, Next Version Systems

 

“Deborah Kurata does her Doing Objects thing again! This is the newest book from Deborah which has been completely rewritten from the ground up for the Visual Basic .Net 2005 developer. Anyone needing a solid foundation in object technology, Visual Basic .Net 2005, and Visual Studio .Net 2005 should read this book. Deborah’s presentation of core topics such as class design, object state management, exception handling, events, data binding, validation, data access techniques, and many others is clear, concise, and direct. The clarity of the content, coupled with the hands-on examples make this book an easy read and a must have.”

–Ron Landers, Senior Technical Consultant, IT Professionals, Inc.

 

“Deborah Kurata continues her tradition of showing both new and experienced Visual Basic programmers the most effective ways to get their jobs done with object-oriented programming.”

–Ethan Roberts, Software Architect, Sundial Software Corporation

 

“As a VB6 programmer, it was a huge leap for me to go from VB6 to VB.Net; Deborah’s book helped me do that. If you’re trying to make that jump, reading this will enable you to do so with minimal pain.”

–Robin Shahan, VB Developer

 

The definitive guide to object-oriented development with Visual Basic 2005

 

Doing Objects in Visual Basic 2005 is the authoritative guide to object-oriented design, architecture, and development with Visual Basic 2005. Author Deborah Kurata is the original pioneer in building object-oriented applications with Visual Basic. In this book she continues to offer clarity and deliver best practices for using object-oriented techniques in Visual Basic 2005. She has been honored with Microsoft’s prestigious MVP designation for her expertise and contributions to the community.

 

Kurata begins with a concise introduction to core object-oriented concepts and the Visual Basic 2005 features that support them. Next she introduces a pragmatic and agile approach to designing effective applications along with an application framework. From there she walks you through the process of building the user interface, business logic, and data access layers of an application, highlighting key VB 2005 techniques and best practices. Kurata’s step-by-step “building along” activities provide you with deep hands-on mastery; your finished application can serve as the starting point for virtually any custom project. This book

 

  • Shows how the tools in Visual Studio 2005 combined with a solid object-oriented approach can help minimize the complexities of software development and improve productivity
  • Clearly explains the fundamental concepts of object development: classes, inheritance, interfaces, scenarios, and more
  • Presents a pragmatic agile software design methodology to help analyze and design applications for the real world
  • Covers building the user interface layer using a base form class, programmatic interfaces, and object binding
  • Details building the business logic layer using a base business object class and validation rules
  • Demonstrates how to build the data access layer using ADO.NET
  • Provides best practices and tips for experienced .NET developers, those new to .NET, and for those developers moving from VB6 to .NET

Book News Annotation:

Kurata, a pioneer in object oriented programming and Visual Basic, here offers a concise guide that includes insider techniques and strategies. She assumes even the most experienced need a refresher now and again and provides a comprehensive introduction to object orientation in the .NET environment, moving on to the details of designing software and building projects, including the user interface layer and business logic layer. With examples of code and step-by-step directions she covers class tools and techniques, binding the user interface tot he business objects, and building the data access layer. Throughout she supplies summaries, tips on building along with the text, additional reading, and exercises with instructions. The result is an accessible handbook and study guide that features helpful screen shots and illustrations and a logical build-up from the basics and theories to practical applications.
