Indeed this advanced software, Microsoft created to optimize Windows administration and best practices, obtains large interest in IT professional people with many heated debates in specific user community about a powerful and at the same time complex software .

Microsoft Visual Basic 2013 Step by Step

Microsoft Visual Basic 2013 Step by Step

This long-awaited book will please Visual Basic programmers, so far neglected compared to those using C # or Java. It goes step by step and is not dedicated to beginners but to people already sufficiently familiar in the .NET environment. The reader is gradually led into all areas of the Windows 8 world, with clear examples and relevant snippets from the new Forms XAML to the Apps for both Win 8 and Win Phone 8. Important chapters are dedicated to the data sources ADO and XML and to Internet applications via ASP.NET. In short, the book offers almost everything you need to know and master Win 8 programming, although issues such as tasks and threads are poorly treated or absent. However, such arguments, already present in the previous . NET release are well known by skilled users to whom the book is addressed. Full Review >

This booklet is concise but very useful in all the previous instances. Full Review >
