Publisher Comments:

Master programming logic, while harnessing the power of Visual Basic.NET!

With Patrick McKeown’s Learning to Program with VB.NET, you’ll not only discover how to create exciting and powerful interfaces, you’ll also gain valuable programming skills that you can apply to other computer languages. Together, the book and its accompanying Web site provide the knowledge and tools you need to take advantage of the .NET platform, as well as numerous opportunities to use what you’ve learned to create fully functioning programs.

 Key Features

  • Rather than just explaining how to use the VB.NET interface, McKeown helps you develop a fundamental understanding of programming logic, concepts, and techniques including the use of object-oriented programming.
  • McKeown’s highly effective approach to learning programming first discusses why you would want to write a program, then shows you how to do it, and, finally, asks you to actually write the program.
  • Each chapter contains discussions of specific concepts, screen captures, helpful tips, a chapter summary, key terms, and projects and exercises.
  • A running case allows you to create a fairly sophisticated information system for a DVD rental store.
  • Step-by-step instructions and It’s Your Turn exercises, along with code boxes at the end of each section, help you develop programming skills by actually writing programs.
  • All of the code included in the text can be downloaded from the book’s Web site at www.wiley.com/college/mckeown. This site also provides data files that that you’ll need to use in order to complete various exercises.

Book News Annotation:

Emphasizing the logic, concepts, and techniques of object-oriented programming, this textbook and guide discusses why you would want to write a program, then demonstrates how to do it, and ends with a tutorial to apply this knowledge. A running example illustrates key ideas, using the case of a DVD rental store. McKeown taught managerial information systems at the University of Georgia.
