Synopses & Reviews
You can learn at least three important things in An Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming with Visual Basic .NET: how to analyze the business requirements of an application, model the objects and relationships involved in the solution design, and 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 2.0.
The author delves into object-oriented programming methodology and design and how it is implemented in Visual Basic .NET- concepts that transcend a particular programming language. He explores the structure of classes, class hierarchies, inheritance, and interfaces. The .NET Framework is introduced along with Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE).
A case study walks you through the design of a solution based on a real-world scenario. Programmers can then 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.
Beginning Object-Oriented Programming with VB 2005 is a comprehensive resource of correct coding procedures. Author Daniel Clark takes you through all the stages of a programming project, including analysis, modeling, and development, all using object-oriented programming techniques and Visual Basic .NET.
Clark explores the structure of classes and their hierarchies, as well as inheritance and interfaces. He also introduces the .NET Framework and the Visual Studio integrated development environment, or IDE. A real-world case study walks you through the design of a solution. You can then transform the design into a functional VB .NET application.
The application includes a graphical user interface (GUI), a business logic class library, and integration with a back-end database. Throughout the book, you?ll explore the fundamentals of software design, object-oriented programming, Visual Basic .NET 2.0, and the Unified Modeling Language (UML).
