Visual Basic Programmer's Guide to the .NET Framework Class Library
Annotation The definitive reference every VB.NET developer needs to increase productivity inside the .NET Framework. This book answers the primary questions that VB.NET developers need answered as they start to develop code. Educates current VB6 programmers and new VB.NET programmers on the core .NET namespaces and their uses. As developers create .NET applications, this book will help them comprehend the capabilities of the existing namespaces in .NET and how to leverage them by extension or reference to create applications ranging from simple to complex. Visual Basic Programmer's Guide to the .NET Framework Class Library covers how to delineate and define the pieces of .NET; how and why .NET was conceived and what this means to VB6/Windows DNA developers; how to execute Windows programming using the .NET namespaces; instructs how to make architecture decisions when using .NET namespaces; provides details about the construction of Web Services and how they communicate with each other; call-outs and highlighted sections illustrate concepts by relating previous VB6/Windows DNA best practices with the new .NET approach. Lars Powers is co-owner of Brilliant Storm, a consulting company that specializes in developing intelligent tools for the .NET world. He has more than 10 years of experience in the software development sector, nearly all of which centers on designing and implementing highly distributed applications using Microsoft VB and COM technologies. He is a Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD), and was one of the original "charter members" of this certification program. Mike Snell is co-owner of Brilliant Storm with Lars Powers. Mike has spent the last six years defining scalable, enterprise-level architecture for client-server and Web-based projects. In addition, he has a strong background in software architecture using UML and project management. Mike has also achieved the distinction of Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer.
