VB.Net Book Recommendation


T

Tom

Can anyone recommend a learning vb.net for an experienced programmer type
book? I have been a developer for many years but have not got in to the .net
world yet but would like to. I have been a Powerbuilder developer for a
number of years so have the oop experience. Any books out there they stand
out for learning VB.net? Thanks

I have several for VB.NET and I'd say it depends upon what you
primarily want to use it for... If database stuff then I'd start with
"Mastering Visual Basic.Net Database Programming" ISBN: 0-7821-2878-5.
This one gets involved a bit deeper because it's just for one area.

A general purpose book to just dabble in a little of each area I'd
probably recommend "Visual Basic.NET: Black Book - Comprehensive
Problem Solver" ISBN: 1-57610-835-X

Another general purpose book for dabbling would be "Mastering Visual
Basic.NET" ISBN: 0-7821-2877-7

However, those books are for 2002, not 2003. There may be more
appropriate titles for 2003 and if you have VB.NET 2003 then I'd get
one for that one.

You being an experienced developer will quickly pass the get your feet
wet stuff and be wanting something more of a detailed work in each
area. I'd recommend a book that specializes in just the area you need
to work on at the moment... ie. graphics, databases, class
development, connectivity, internet/web developement, whatever.

Hope this helps.

Gotta go!

Hi Tom,

If you've worked in Powerbuilder then you are probably a database
programmer. Three very good books:
1. ado .net, Sceppa, MS Press - he's very good
2. programming visual basic .net, Balena, MS Press; also very good
3. Troelson, Apress, Visual Basic .net and the .net platform - very good
for experienced programmers.

HTH,

Bernie Yaeger
