Description

Visual Basic .NET Complete is a one-of-a-kind book--valuable both for its broad content and its low price. Because the new version of Visual Basic is radically different from VB6, this book delivers the essential skills you need to start programming with VB.NET--including the basics of the new language and developing Windows applications with the new Visual Studio .NET tools.

With Visual Basic .NET Complete, you'll learn everything you need to know for Web application development with ASP.NET and XML--from working with Web Forms to building Web Services. You'll also learn how to build database applications with ADO.NET, the latest version of Microsoft's data access technology. Finally, you'll get the experience of creating real-world applications, including building an online store using .NET technologies.

Visual Basic .NET Complete introduces you to the work of some of Sybex's finest authors, so you'll know where to go to learn even more about Visual Basic .NET.
