Author Information

Marco Bellinaso is a freelance software developer. He lives in a small town close to Venice, Italy. He has been working with VB, C/C++, ASP and other Microsoft tools for several years, specializing in User Interface, API, ActiveX/COM design and programming. He is now spending all his time on the .NET Framework, using C# and VB.NET.
He is particularly interested in e-commerce design and implementation solutions with SQL Server, ASP.NET, and web services. He is a team member at www.vb2themax.com, for which he writes articles and commercial software, such as add-ins for MS Visual Studio and other utilities for VB and .NET developers.
Marco recently co-authored "Beginning C#" from Wrox Press, and is also a contributing editor for two leading Italian programming magazines: Computer Programming and Visual Basic Journal (Italian licensee for Visual Studio Magazine). Reach him at mbellinaso@vb2themax.com.

Kevin Hoffman has always loved computers and computer programming. He first got hooked when he received a Commodore VIC-20 from his grandfather, who had repaired it after finding it in the trash. He then started a prolific but unprofitable career writing shareware games and utilities for electronic bulletin board systems.
He started working as a programmer while still in college, writing computer interfaces to solar measurement devices and various other scientific instruments. Moving to Oregon, he did everything from technical support to tuning Unix kernels, and eventually working as an ASP programmer for 800.COM, a popular on-line electronics retailer. From there he moved on to working on large, enterprise ASP applications.
Then he finally found .NET, which he now spends 100% of his programming and learning efforts on. A big C# fan, who would use it to do everything including brush my teeth if only he could figure out how, Kevin has been writing on .NET for Wrox since the middle of Beta 1. He plans to continue until we get tired of him. He's currently in Houston, Texas sweating a lot and working on web services and other large-scale .NET applications.

33 Strong Name command

The line 'SN -K ThePhile.SNK' should read 'SN -k ThePhile.SNK'. The 'k' should be lower-case.

2 40 The BizObject Class

The text specifies that the BizObject class is "of course, abstract and public." The code below declares it as public but not abstract. This would allow code to instantiate a BizObject object directly, which should not be allowed. So it should be declared as public abstract class BizObject.

3 58 The PhilePageBase mystery

Page 58 refers to a class library called PhilePageBase, which supposedly contains the PhilePage class. In fact, this class does not go in a class libarary of its one -- it goes straight in the main ThePhile project. The other details -- class name, namespace, and so on -- are correct in the book.

3 61 "Controls" project mystery

The final paragraph of page 61 refers to a "C# class library, called Controls". This class library does not exist in the sample code. Instead, the files are located in a folder called Controls within the ThePhile project.

4 85 Remove the InitializeComponent() method

The InitializeComponent() method was autogenerated by a pre-release version of Visual Studio .NET, and should not be included.
