Synopsis

Praise for The Visual Basic .NET Programming Language



"There is no substitute to getting the inside scoop directly from a book written by the father of a programming language such as Bjarne Stroustrup for C++, James Gosling for Java and Alan Cooper for the original version of Visual Basic. Paul Vick, the father of Visual Basic .NET, explains the whys and hows of this exciting new language better than any other human being on the planet."



-Ted Pattison, Barracuda.NET"The Visual Basic .NET Programming Language includes nuances that in all my use and study of VB .NET, I haven't seen discussed anywhere else. For example, I learned that you can use the Imports statement to import an Enum name, so that you needn't refer to the enum in all its uses. In addition, I learned that the dictionary lookup operator, `!', works in VB .NET-I thought this one had been retired. In any case, if you're searching for a book that covers all the language syntax issues, and more, Paul Vick's book is a great place to look."



-Ken Getz, Senior Consultant, MCW Technologies, LLC"This book is an excellent stepping stone for Visual Basic developers wanting to get their toes wet in the .NET waters. Paul's presentation of the core topics all VB developers should tackle first is clear, concise, and unlike other books in the genre, does not overwhelm the reader. The VB6 vs. VB.NET task-oriented approach guides you through the new language and OO features, and then moves to basic threading and other CLR topics-as well as to the key points in the COM to .NET transition-in a well thought-out sequence. If you've been holding out on VB .NET, this is a great book to get you started."



-Klaus H. Probst, Sr. Consultant/Architect, Spherion Technology Services, Microsoft MVP"There is no shortage of VB .NET books in the market, but this is the only book straight from the creators. While that is an excellent reason in itself for reading this book, it is the brevity and clarity of the content, along with the examples, that makes this book a must-have."



-Amit Kalani, Developer"Overall, I liked this book and it definitely benefited me. I learned new things I didn't see anywhere else and I'll certainly put these to good use in the future. Paul's book makes a great reference manual for intermediate and advanced VB .NET developers."



-Philip Williams, System Engineer, LDC Direct "This book contains a lot of great information I have seen nowhere else and addresses issues that other books do not."



-Ethan Roberts, .NET Architect, General Casualty"This book is full of useful information and provides a good historical background for the Visual Basic .NET Language."



-Dave Vitter, Technical Lead Developer and author of Designing Visual Basic .NET Applications (Coriolis, 2001)The definitive Microsoft Visual Basic .NET reference-authored by Visual Basic .NET's lead architect If you want to leverage all of VB .NET's immense power, get this book. It's the definitive VB .NET reference and tutorial, and the first Visual Basic book written by one of VB .NET's lead architects. No other book offers this much behind-the-scenes insight about why VB .NET works the way it does, how it evolved, and how you can make the most of it.



The Visual Basic .NET Programming Language is a superb learning tool for new VB .NET programmers and a must-have reference for developers at every level. Paul Vick presents precise language descriptions, essential reference materials, practical insights, and hundreds of code samples, straight from Microsoft's VB .NET design team.



Just some of the features include:







A history and overview of Visual Basic's evolution into VB .NET

Complete coverage of the language syntax

Transitioning from COM to the CLR and leveraging the .NET platform

Runtime functions

Taking full advantage of VB .NET's object-oriented features

Notes on style, design, and compatibility throughout the text

Notes for the advanced user throughout the text







Vick exposes VB .NET's most powerful capabilities with unprecedented depth and clarity, and packs this book with information you simply won't find anywhere else.

Paul Vick, one of VB.NET's lead architects, is author of the language's specification. He joined the Visual Basic team in 1997, first working on VB 6.0's OLE automation component, and then moving to the core compiler as the team began work on what would become Visual Studio .NET. In late 1999, he became leader of the VB.NET compiler team, helping to drive the decisions that led to VB.NET's full support for .NET and the CLR. He continues to work on the Visual Basic language definition and compiler. 0321169514AB12302003
