9788176566582: Murach's Beginning Visual Basic .NET

Although this book is designed for people who are new to the .NET Framework, Visual Basic, or even programming, its goals are ambitious. In just 20 chapters, you will learn how to develop graphical user interfaces, how to develop applications that work with databases through ADO.NET, how to develop web applications that use Web services and XML, and much more. It's all there in the unique Murach style that has been training professional programmers for more than 25 years.

From the Publisher:

Here are 4 ways that our instructional approach insures your success:

To help you learn how to develop applications at a professional level, this book presents 18 business applications as examples. That way, you can see the relationships between the Visual Basic code, objects, properties, methods, and events that an application requires, which is essential to your understanding. In contrast, most competing books present trivial applications that have little resemblance to applications in the real world, and that limits your learning potential.

To solidify your skills, the exercises at the end of each chapter guide you through the development of some of the book’s applications. They also encourage you to experiment and challenge you to apply what you’ve learned in new ways. To give you a maximum amount of practice in a minimum amount of time, you start many of these exercises from partial applications that you download from our web site.

To help you learn more by reading less, all of the information in this book is presented in "paired pages" with the essential syntax, guidelines, and examples on the righthand page and the perspective and extra explanation on the left. Programmers tell us how much they like this approach because it lets them quickly find what they’re looking for. This is particularly useful for a language like Visual Basic because you simply can’t remember the hundreds of details that are required for effective programming.

After you read the first section of this book plus chapter 8, you can read the chapters in section 2, 3, 4, or 5. In other words, you don’t have to read all 20 chapters in sequence. We refer to this as "modular organization," and it lets you get the training you need when you need it. Yes, there are some contingencies between some of the chapters, but we let you know about them whenever they’re critical.

From the Author:

When we started this book, our goals were (1) to teach you Visual Basic as quickly and easily as possible; (2) to teach you a set of professional Visual Basic skills that you can use for developing real-world business applications; and (3) to introduce you to all of the major features of Visual Basic .NET so you’re prepared to learn more on your own. Now, we sincerely hope that we’ve succeeded.

So if you have any comments about this book, we would appreciate hearing from you. In particular, we would like to know whether this book has lived up to your expectation
