Publisher Comments:

This book is for anyone who wants to write good Visual Basic 2008 code - even if you have never programmed before.

Writing good code can be a challenge, there are so many options, especially in a language like Visual Basic. If you want to really get the best from a programming language you need to know which features work best in which situations and understand their strengths and weaknesses. It is this understanding that makes the difference between coding and coding well.

Beginning VB 2008 has been written to teach you how to use the Visual Basic programming language to solve problems. From the earliest chapters, and from the first introductory concepts, you'll be looking at real-world programming challenges and learning how Visual Basic can be used to overcome them. As you progress through the book the problems become more involved and interesting while the solutions become correspondingly more complex and powerful as Visual Basic features interact to achieve the results that you want.

By the time you've finished reading this book and worked through the sample exercises, you'll be a confident and very competent Visual Basic programmer. You will still have many explorations of the .NET Framework API to look forward to in your future career, but you will have a firm foundation to build from and you will know exactly where to go to find the things that you need to progress confidently in your projects.

Use the Visual Studio IDE to create, debug, and deploy your applications. Understand the mysteries of database access and the many ways that it can be accomplished from VB. Delve deeply into the huge range of supporting technologies that the .NET Framework offers: LINQ, ASP.NET AJAX, ADO.NET 3.0, WPF, WCF, and Windows Workflow are all introduced and explained in a straightforward and easy-to-follow way. Who is this book for?

This book is for anyone who's just starting out to learn about Visual Basic 2008. It doesn't assume any prior knowledge of object-oriented programming, of the .NET Framework, or of coding in general.

Synopsis:

The VB 2008 language is a professional's gateway to the powerful .NET platform. VB combined with Visual Studio gives users the freedom to create applications faster and with a greater range of tools than any other coding environment. This handbook is ideal for anyone just learning about VB 2008.

Synopsis:

The Microsoft .NET Framework has gone from strength to strength since its inception in November 2000. It now supports a large and vibrant development community eager for new techniques and ideas.

Visual Studio 2008 together with the latest versions of VB, C# and ASP will be the largest upgrade to the framework since .NET 2.0 in November 2005. Since then there have been huge changes in the development landscape, with the new Vista operating system being released and the '.NET 3.0' package of add-ons released to support it. In Visual Studio 2008 all of these technologies, together with LINQ, ASP.NET AJAX and a huge collection of new language features, are being brought together into a single cohesive unit behind the Visual Studio interface.

Beginning VB 2008 is being written from scratch, specifically for this new version of VB, by a well-respected author to teach beginners how to use the new framework to their best advantage. Readers will learn everything they need to know to get to grips with this cutting-edge technology.
