Book Excerpt: Expert One-on-One Visual Basic 2005 Design and Development

As the most popular programming language in the world, VB 2005 offers a rich array of programming options that even experienced VB programmers will find challenging. Well-known Visual Basic expert Rod Stephens tackles the issues that pros face when creating complex applications, covering topics that most other VB books ignore or gloss over, such as design, modeling, testing, reflection, and advanced memory management. Packed with code examples, this book:

  • Shares the best methods for mastering many advanced features of VB 2005
  • Discusses the design activities that are necessary before VB development can begin
  • Covers processes that occur after development (such as deployment, update management, and testing) that are essential to a successful VB project but are not part of the language itself
