This is a practical tutorial to writing Visual Basic (VB6 and VB.NET) programs using some of the most common design patterns. This book also provides a convenient way for VB6 programmers to migrate to VB.NET and use its more powerful object-oriented features. Organized as a series of short chapters that each describe a design pattern, Visual Basic Design Patterns provides one or more complete working visual examples of programs using that pattern, along with UML diagrams illustrating how the classes interact. Each example is a visual program that students can run and study on the companion CD making the pattern as concrete as possible.
Programming and Problem Solving with Visual Basic NET
This book continues to reflect our experience that topics once considered too advanced can be taught in the first course. The text addresses metalanguages explicitly as the formal means of specifying programming language syntax.
Visual Basic NET and the NET Platform
Microsoft Visual Basic .NET provides the productivity features developers need to rapidly create enterprise-critical web applications. In Visual Basic .NET and the .NET Platform: An Advanced Guide, author Andrew Troelsen shows experienced developers how to use VB .NET for developing virtually every possible kind of .NET application. From Windows-based to web-based applications, ADO .NET, XML Web services, and object-oriented language features, it's all here. There are detailed discussions of every aspect of .NET development and useful examples with no toy code. Troelsen starts with a brief philosophy of the VB .NET language and then quickly moves to key technical and architectural issues for .NET developers. Not only is there extensive coverage of the .NET Framework, but Troelsen also describes the object-oriented features of VB .NET including inheritance and interface-based programming techniques. Youll also learn how to use VB .NET for object serialization, how to access data with ADO.NET, and how to build (and interact with) .NET Web Services, and how to access legacy COM applications. Written in the same five-star style as Troelson's previous two books, Developer's Workshop to COM and ATL 3.0 and C# and the .NET Platform, this is the comprehensive book on using VB .NET to build .NET applications that you've been waiting for!
