¿Programming the Web with Visual Basic .NET¿ is a comprehensive guide to building Web applications and services using Visual Basic .NET. It is written especially for experienced Visual Basic programmers who use Visual Studio .NET for their development work, even those who have never written a Web application before. Because the .NET Framework simply blows away the archaic tools previously available to Web programmers, the authors predict that many Visual Basic programmers who successfully avoided Web programming in the past will now bring their expertise to the Web. However, even experienced Web programmers will greatly benefit from the authors' thorough coverage of the ASP.NET namespaces and their clear coverage of the ADO.NET classes most important to Web applications that use relational databases for data storage. All developers will benefit from the authors' extensive practical advice (based on their unique professional backgrounds) about how to produce create high quality code and how to create professional, usable Web sites. After reading ¿Programming the Web with Visual Basic .NET¿, developers will understand how to build and deploy top quality, professionally designed, highly usable Web applications using Visual Basic .NET. Author Information Constance Petersen co-authored the best-selling Visual Basic 4 How-To and has been recognized with the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for her contributions to the VB development community. The creative force within SoftMedia Artisans, she has written extensively on Web design and usability. Lynn Torkelson, a grizzled veteran of assembly language and C programming, has extensive experience using Visual Basic to develop client-server business applications. Lynn also did tours of duty as a software development manager and as a manager of software quality. Zac Torkelson began investigating the joys of programming at the age of ten and gradually intensified his interest. He soon learned VB5, then VB6, and C++. Zac then began using the Windows API extensively in his programs. Upon the arrival of the first .NET Beta, Zac switched to Visual Basic .NET and C#. These days he particularly likes to program multiplayer online games.
