Expert VB 2005 Business Objects, Second Editionby Rocky Lhotka
Synopses & Reviews
When Rocky first presented his incredibly significant CSLA.NET architecture and framework, he helped trigger a sea-change in the mindset of VB enterprise developers that is still at work today. His depth of thinking now influences developers across the language boundaries, and the previous editions of the books were bestsellers.
Deep Q and A sessions spark up every time Rocky speaks; it seems that an entire generation of professional .NET programmers are employing Rocky's ideas in their critical work. Rocky has thought through the enterprise problem space deeply, and he is a modern master at answering the practical questions.
On Wiley acquisition editor Jim Minatel's blog, he gives his opinion of the commercial potential of the book: "Shoudln't be a surprise that Rocky is working on revisions of his Business Objects books. Man do I wish these were Wrox books. That's not some great secret either, right? Yes, out of the 30-something best-selling books we bought we missed the potential for Rocky's then-unpublished book. I'd still say we were 90% or better successful in picking the right books. But I'll reiterate, man I wish these were ours."
The second edition of Lhotka's industry-standard VB .NET Business Objects book not only addresses changes in .NET 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005, but also reflects substantial enhancements and improvements to the CSLA .NET Framework and how it can be used to create enterprise-level .NET applications.
Rockford Lhotka started writing his Business Objects books in 1996, and over the years, he's become one of the world's foremost authorities on building distributed object-oriented systems. This second edition of his industry-standard VB .NET Business Objects book not only addresses changes in .NET 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005, but also reflects substantial enhancements and improvements to the CSLA .NET Framework and how it can be used to create enterprise-level .NET applications.
Expert VB 2005 Business Objects takes you from an opening discussion of logical architectures to detailed n-tier deployment options using the CSLA .NET Framework. Rockford provides enough understanding and detail for you to take this approach to your own projects, as many developers have already done.
Rockford travels the world discussing his ideas with other developers at professional conferences and local user groups, but you can benefit from his expertise anytime with this book. There are many solutions to developing distributed applications; why not learn about them from an expert with a universally accepted and respected framework?
