An Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming with Visual Basic .NETby Dan Clark
Synopses & Reviews
As you work your way through An Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming with Visual Basic .NET, you'll learn how to analyze the business requirements of an application, model the objects and relationships involved in the solution design and, finally, implement the solution using Visual Basic .NET. Along the way you'll also learn the fundamentals of software design, the Unified Modeling Language (UML), object-oriented programming, and Visual Basic .NET.
An Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming with Visual Basic .NET is logically organized into three parts. Part One delves into object-oriented programming methodology and design, concepts that transcend a particular programming language. The concepts presented are important to the success of an object-oriented programming solution regardless of the implementation language chosen. At the conclusion of this part, a case study walks you through the design of a solution based on a real-world scenario. Part Two looks at how object-oriented programming is implemented in Visual Basic .NET. You will explore the structure of classes, class hierarchies, inheritance, and interfaces. The .NET Framework is introduced along with the Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE). Part Three returns to the case study introduced at the end of Part One. Using the knowledge gained in Part Two, programmers will transform the design into a functional VB .NET application. The application includes a graphical user interface, a business logic class library, and integration with a back-end database.
Book News Annotation:
This guide for novice programmers explains how to analyze the business requirements of a program, model the objects and relationships involved in application design, and implement the application using Visual Basic. NET. The author, who is a Microsoft certified trainer, introduces UML modeling techniques, the structure of classes and hierarchies, and programming with Windows Forms and Web Forms.

Readers working through An Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming with Visual Basic .NET first take a look at how to analyze the business requirements of an application. Next, readers look at modeling the objects and relationships involved in the solution design. Finally, readers implement the solution using Visual Basic .NET. Along the way, one learns the fundamentals of software design, the Unified Modeling Language (UML), Object-Oriented Programming (OOP), and Visual Basic .NET. This book is especially for the beginning VB .NET programmer who wants to gain a foundation in OOP along with the VB language basics. Programmers transitioning from a procedural oriented programming model to an object-oriented model will also benefit from this book. There are also a large number of pre-.NET VB programmers who do not have a firm grasp of OOP: now is the time to become acquainted with the fundamentals of OOP, before transitioning to VB .NET. Because the experience level of a "beginning" can vary immensely, Dan Clark has also included a primer in Appendix A that discusses some fundamental procedural programming concepts.
