Microsoft Visual Basic Developer
Get a focused, first look at the features and capabilities in Microsoft Visual Basic 2005, Visual Studio 2005, and the .NET Framework 2.0. If you currently work with Visual Basic 6, these authors fully understand the adoption and code migration issues you'll encounter. They'll step you through a quick primer on .NET Framework programming, offering guidance for a productive transition. If you already work with .NET, you'll jump directly into what's new, learning how to extend your existing skills. From the innovations in rapid application development, debugging, and deployment, to new data access, desktop, and Web programming capabilities, you get the insights and code walkthroughs you need to be productive right away.
Visual Basic .NET
This free 513-pages ebook is a comprehensive hands-on guide to the Visual Basic .NET programming language addressed to readers with some programming background. No background in Visual Basic is required, however. While it will show you the syntax of VB .NET, this book is not designed to teach you syntax. Trying to force VB .NET into the framework of older versions of VB is ultimately self-defeating: you cannot take advantage of its power if you continue to think within an older paradigm.
Visual Basic .NET
The goal of this book is to help you come up to speed with the Visual Basic .NET language even if you have never programmed anything before. We will start slowly, and build on what we learn. So take a deep breath, let it out slowly, and tell yourself you can do this. No sweat! No kidding. Programming a computer is a lot like teaching a child to tie their shoes. Until you find the correct way of giving the instructions, not much gets accomplished. Visual Basic .NET is a language in which you can tell your computer how to do things. But like a child, the computer will only understand if you explain things very clearly. If you have never programmed before, this sounds like an arduous task, and sometimes it is. However, Visual Basic .NET gives you a simple language to explain some very complex things. Although it never hurts to have an understanding of what is happening at the lowest levels, Visual Basic .NET frees the programmer from having to deal with the mundane complexities of writing Windows programs. You are free to concentrate on solving problems.

Metex is home to the world's leading application migration technology, that includes a world leading automated code transformation engine as well as a suite of code mining and analysis tools. The key advantage of the Metex Migration Solution is a proven track record based on years of transforming 4GL Client Server applications into the modern multi-tier architectures in Java or .NET. Metex can transform 4GL applications into a client's specific architectural code standards, and this capability only existed previously with costly time consuming manual migrations. When you are ready to transform your 4GL Client Server application into a more current Java or .NET standard, then you need to consider the Metex Migration Solution.
