After an introduction to abstract data types and their initial implementation using structures, Michael McMillan analyzes standard OOP topics, including class design, inheritance, access modifiers and scoping issues, abstract classes, design and implementation of interfaces and design patterns, and refactoring in VB.NET. More advanced OOP topics are covered as well (reflection, object persistence, and serialization.) Finally, he demonstrates OOP techniques for standard Windows applications; for database applications using ADO.NET; for Web-based applications using ASP.NET; and for Windows service applications.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"...it is written clearly, and any student who has successfully completed a programming course in any language should be able to use it as a stepping-stone into the world of applications programming in Microsoft's dot-NET framework. Recommended." S.L. Tanimoto, University of Washington, ChoiceSee more reviews
"Beginning with an overview of the syntax and primary constructs of the VB.NET language, the book elaborates standard object-oriented programming topics including class, inheritance, access modifiers and scoping issues, abstract classes, design and implementation of interfaces and design patterns, and refactoring in VB.NET...All in all, the book will help VB users to develop a firm understanding of object-oriented programming in VB.NET."
