Exploring the .NET universe with Visual Basic 2008
The first edition of this book was released shortly after the 2001 Tech-Ed conference in Atlanta, Georgia. The latest edition of this text is a massive upgrade from the book’s prior editions that accounts for all of the new features found within .NET 3.0 and .NET 3.5.
As you may know, .NET 3.0 did not change the syntax of VB, but was simply an “argumentative release”, essentially providing three new APIs: Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), and Windows Workflow Foundation (WF). As you would expect, coverage of the “W’S” is included in the book you hold in your hands.
Unlike .NET 3.0, .NET 3.5 provids dozens of new VB language features and new .NET APIs. This edition of the book will walk you through all of this new material using the same readable approach (at least that is what Ihave been told!) as found in the prior editions. Rest assured, you’ll find detailed coverage of Language Integrated Query (LINQ), the VB 2008 language changes (object initialization syntax, extension methods, anonymous types, etc.) and the numerous bells and whistles of Visual Studio 2008.
The missions of this text is to provide you with a rock-solid foundation of the VB 2008 language and object-oriented programming techniques, as well as the core aspects of the .NET platform . Once you digest the information techniques presented your specific programming assignments, and you’ll be well equipped to explore the .NET universe on your own terms.
