Programming Microsoft Visual Basic 2005

Programming Microsoft Visual Basic 2005

Author: Francesco Balena
Publisher: Microsoft Press


Programming Visual Basic 2005 by Francesco Balena builds on the success of the author's previous programming book for Visual Basic 6 and .NET. This huge 1600 page book provides the most complete coverage of Visual Basic 2005 that I have seen.

This book isn't for beginner programmers who wish to learn Visual Basic 2005. It is aimed at experienced Visual Basic developers who want to take full advantage of the new .NET Framework.

The book provides complete coverage of advanced new object-oriented features, the common language runtime, multithreaded programs, Windows Forms, GDI+ graphic programming, Windows Services, ADO.NET classes for databases, ASP.NET Web Forms, and XML Web Services. Also included are many advanced optimization techniques and tips for leveraging the power of the Visual Studio .NET environment. For those who love code examples, you won't be disappointed. The book is filled with short code examples that illustarte how each specific .NET feature works.

Programming Visual Basic 2005 has received alot of well deserved praise from the Visual Basic community. I found the book to be very thorough, concise, and well written. This is one book that all experienced Visual Basic developers must have by their side.
