Product Description

From the Back Cover

*

Visual Basic.NET will integrate state of the art programming language features, including inheritance, polymorphism, and garbage collection. The book will explain these key concepts in a simple and practical way.

*

Web Forms and Web Controls usher in an elegant way to make dynamic web pages. The book will cover these topics with how-to code examples and projects.

*

One of the newest developments in Internet programming is the use of XML and the SOAP communication protocol. .NET Web Services harness these two technologies, and will be covered in later sections of the book.

This book tries to please both the beginner and the experienced programmer coming from VB6, however it does a below average task of both.
The task of explaining .NET and how to fully utilize VB .NET is not a task for one book, and this book does not claim to do this, instead it jumps back and forth between subjects and forgets some very important topics that are not even mentioned?
I must say I'm sorry I bought this books, and I have bought SAMS books before that are of much higher quality! This is nothing that will discourage me from buying SAMS other titles, but I would look elsewhere for a VB.NET introduction.

This book really has it all in a nutshell...excellent dataset and ADO .NET content, session vars etc etc you name it, it generally covers it. It doesnt go into everything as deep as you would like, so its not gong to be the only book you buy, but for starting off it's an excellent launching point into VB .NET that I would thoroughly recommend.
One note..this book doesnt really cover VB .NET syntax, ie for loops, OO concepts and the like. It does however conatin alot of information about creating web based VB .NET apps, just as the title implies.

If you are new to VB.NET web programming and want to learn it, look somewhere else. The book gives more of an overview of the .NET framework and less actual VB.NET web programming.
Part of Page 11 Paragraph 1 of the book states it best:
"At least 90% of the material you need to learn is related to the .NET Framework, not to Visual Basic. We therefore don't try to teach Visual Basic, but assume you have at least a fundamental knowledge of the language."

This is one of the hot spots in programming today. Knowing how to code in .NET is a must for any programmer. Sams books are always the best and so is this one.
