eBook Description:

Fluent Visual Basic

Based on the principles of cognitive science and instructional design, Fluent Visual Basic, part of the Fluent Learning series, is a true tutorial that will help you build effective working models for understanding a large and complex subject: developing .NET Framework applications in Visual Basic.

Most introductory books just talk at you and give you “exercises” that have more to do with taking dictation than actually learning. Fluent Visual Basic is different. It guides you through learning the way your mind likes to learn: by solving puzzles, making connections, and building genuine understanding instead of just memorizing random facts.

Based on the principles of cognitive science and advanced instructional design, Fluent Visual Basic is a true tutorial that helps the reader to build effective working models for developing .superior NET applications with the newest versions of Visual Basic. Conventional “tutorials” briefly describe the material and present an “exercise” requiring users to type already-provided source code. This book is radically different and better: its carefully-paced exercises have been designed to closely match the brain’s natural learning processes. Readers discover the material themselves – and therefore absorb it more rapidly and effectively. As they move forward, they don’t merely learn VB syntax: they internalize powerful concepts such as Microsoft application archetypes, VB design patterns, and test-driven design.

Coverage includes:

  • Working with the .NET platform and the Visual Studio interface
  • Testing and deploying applications
  • Mastering VB’s nouns and verbs
  • Understanding classes in the .NET framework
  • Working with the Framework Class Library
  • Mastering best practices for object-oriented analysis and design
  • Applying proven VB and .NET design patterns
  • Making the most of WPF and XAML: controls, interactions, resources, templates, and more

This book’s breadth is impressive. More important, its open, inviting format and exercise-driven approach makes learning these complex topics easier and more natural than it’s ever been before.

Detailed Information on How to

  • Write .NET applications in Visual Basic
  • Leverage the incredible power of the .NET Framework Class Library
  • Apply Object-Oriented principles, Design Patterns, and best practices to your code
  • Develop desktop applications using the powerful Windows Presentation Foundation user interface API
