Murach’s Visual Basic 2010
Whether you’re new to Visual Basic or you’re upgrading to VB 2010 from an earlier version, this new edition of Murach’s core VB book shows you how to develop the kind of bullet-proof Windows Forms applications that businesses rely on. Along the way, you’ll learn how to quickly build database applications by using RAD features like data sources and the DataGridView control. You’ll learn how to use object-oriented features like inheritance and interfaces as well as 2010 features like auto-implemented properties and collection initializers. You’ll learn how to use LINQ to query data and XML to exchange data between applications. You’ll learn how to take advantage of all the productivity features of Visual Studio 2010. When you re done, you’ll be able to develop Windows Forms applications the way the best professionals develop them. That’s why we say: No other book teaches you so much, so fast, or so thoroughly.
Instead of using freelance writers who get no training, we use a small staff of programmers who are trained in our proven writing and teaching methods. Instead of publishing 40+ books each year, we focus on just a few. Instead of showing pieces of code, we provide complete applications that have been checked and re-checked for accuracy. And instead of rushing books to market, we refuse to let schedule or budget interfere with quality. As I see it, that’s the only way to make sure that every book we publish is the best one on its subject.
