For courses in Visual Basic .NET Programming.

Unique in its approach, this comprehensive introduction to Visual Basic .NET combines the Deitel™ signature Live-Code™ Approach with a new Application-Driven™ methodology in which students build―from the ground up―real-world applications. As students work through the tutorials, they learn about Visual Basic .NET and its fundamental features. Students begin by learning the basics of programming, and then―through each successive tutorial―build on previously learned concepts while learning new programming features. Students learn GUI design, controls, methods, data types, control structures, methods, arrays, object-oriented programming, strings, sequential files, as well as higher-end topics such as database processing, multimedia and graphics and Web-based applications development.

Review:

"One of the few books that really embraces the truly practical, hands-on approach." -- Sukan Makmari, Devry University "This book has the best use of examples, explanations, graphics and color I have seen in my 20 years of teaching." -- Richard Hewer, Ferris State University "I can't wait to start using this book in my classes. The model of test-drive the application, then build it, is very effective. Accessible, yet with enough depth that students will walk away with a solid programming foundation." -- Catherine Wyman, DeVry University "This book is an excellent introduction to the entire .NET environment." -- Dr. Ken Schoonover, Chubb Institute "What a great book! Gently leads new students through Visual Basic .NET concepts, beginning with an application test-drive, followed by a step-by-step process of building the application, running it and debugging it--with self-reviews along the way!" -- Terrell Hull, CEO, Enterprise Component Technologies
