From the Back Cover:

Powerful, elegant, professional code — it's all a matter of style!

  • Improve and simplify your work by learning the elements of professional coding
  • Build powerful, reliable, and maintainable applications through consistent practices
  • Acquire the mindset of a professional developer

Visual Basic programming is simple enough, but this simplicity can encourage poor programming habits. If you want to produce code that is professional inside and out, you need to do it with a consistent style. Whether you work alone or with a group, you know that clear coding and concise documentation can streamline your job. In The Visual Basic .NET Style Guide, author Tim Patrick teaches you how to structure your projects so they'll satisfy the user immediately, and be easy to troubleshoot or modify later on. You'll also learn to give your applications a polished, professional look: With consistent interface guidelines, your projects are easier to use and more pleasing to the eye, which is something your audience will notice right away.

The Visual Basic .NET programming environment introduces powerful object-oriented and Internet-savvy features. In this edition of The Visual Basic .NET Style Guide, Patrick uses real code examples to show you how to harness these tools using a disciplined approach, whether updating existing code or building new applications from scratch. The Visual Basic .NET Style Guide will teach you to

  • Write clear, concise code that's easy for you and others to maintain
  • Fine-tune your interface for a rich, rewarding user experience
  • Learn the foundational attitudes of discipline, planning, and ethics
  • Apply the power of Visual Basic .NET to new and existing software

Even if your experience in Visual Basic and object-oriented programming is limited, The Visual Basic .NET Style Guide will teach you to write concise, easily maintained code that fully leverages the .NET platform.
