VB.NET tutorials

Post by Karakoram » Tue Oct 21, 2003 11:43 pm

I am learning VB.net, I bought some C++ books, but haven't really cracked them open.

kind of depends on where you are at now.

If you learning from scratch like me (but used to know a procedural programming like Basic or FORTRAN:

I recommend:
Coding Techniquest for MS VB.NET (Connell)

I do not recommend the other MicroSoft Press book by Havorsen (VB.net step by step).

Very good books are by Karl Moore, VB.net the Tutorials, and the Ultimate VB.net and ASP.net code book.

Beyond that, I don't know. Anyone else ?

After purchasing many VB.net books, (and looking through some at the bookstore), I have found 2 of the best books for beginners like me. They are college texts, but start with the basics.

BTW, if you are beginner, consider purchasing a book on algorithm design/software design, in general, and not language dependant. Its the starting point for many college courses that teach a specific language later on.

Any the two VB.net books I like are:
Visual Basic. NET How to Program
Second Edition
© 2002

ISBN: 0130293636

and

Simply Visual Basic .NET 2003: An Application-Driven Tutorial Approach
© 2004

ISBN: 0131426400


BTW, I accidentally got the second book bundled with VB.net standard edition. the book and software was brandnew, shrinkwrapped, still sealed for $63 !!!!!!! If you want the VB.net disks, make sure your specify this version of the book, because it comes with or without the bundle.

Excellent way to get VB.net without paying $2000 for VS.net (as I did).

Hello, does anyone know any websites (or ebooks) for sytems traders using C++ or Java? I've only seen this forum... Are there any others out there? Any texts? I am in Belarus, and the mail just isn't dependable or else I'd buy some of the C++ books from Amazon, I haven't seen any about Java, but any websites would be great.
