Object-oriented Programming in Visual Basic .NET
Visual Basic .NET (VB .NET) has been a radical departure from previous versions of Visual Basic. The language is now fully object-oriented, and can be used either to write programs, or to create components that fit within the .NET architecture. If you are learning to program, VB .NET will give you a previously unheard-or mix of power, flexibility and ease of use.
The book approaches the language from an object-oriented (OO) perspective, demonstrating that Visual Basic can now be used to develop real industrial-strength OO systems and software components. It starts by covering OO analysis, design and modelling using UML, and then moves on to a full discussion of OO concepts. Advanced topics such as data structures database applications and software design patterns are also covered. Throughout, students are shown how to develop short programs in order to illustrate the fundamentals of algorithm design and structured programming.
