Visual Basic.NET (VB.NET) is an object-oriented computer programming language that can be viewed as an evolution of the classic Visual Basic (VB), which is implemented on the .NET Framework. Microsoft currently supplies two major implementations of Visual Basic: Microsoft Visual Studio (which is commercial software) and Microsoft Visual Studio Express (which is free of charge).
Microsoft Visual Basic (VB) is the most popular programming language in the world, with millions of lines of code used in businesses and applications of all types and sizes. In this edition of the bestselling Wrox guide, Visual Basic expert Rod Stephens offers novice and experienced developers a comprehensive tutorial and reference to Visual Basic 2012. This latest edition introduces major changes to the Visual Studio development platform, including support for developing mobile applications that can take advantage of the Windows 8 operating system.
Visual Basic 2010 boasts exciting new features and capabilities that cement its position as a true object-oriented language and provide you with access to new and better technologies. This invaluable book covers Visual Basic from start to finish and discusses the new enhancements to Visual Basic 2010. The team of expert authors explains how VB 2010 can be combined with .NET 4 to build applications using Windows Presentation Foundation, Windows Forms, Visual Studio Tools for Office, and apps and libraries based on the Windows Communication Foundation, the Windows Workflow Foundation, and SharePoint.
