Visual Basic 2010 Fundamentals I and II LiveLessons (Sneak Peek)

Video description

&>Visual Basic 2010 Fundamentals I and II LiveLessons  introduces all key facets of the Visual Basic 2010 language through a hands-on approach with hundreds of working programs. This video starts at the beginning and goes on to explore many of the major innovations Microsoft has incorporated in Visual Basic 2010 and .NET 4.0. Deitel begins by covering programming basics: control statements, methods, arrays, and file manipulation. He then goes on to explore inheritance and polymorphism, the keys to modern object-oriented programming. Deitel then covers many key platform features, including LINQ data queries, web development with ASP.NET, Windows Forms GUI programming, and support for graphics and multimedia. All of the sample programs have been carefully audited against the newest Visual Basic language specification.

This video has a companion Video Enhanced book: Visual Basic 2010 How to
Program, 5/e by Paul Deitel and Harvey Deitel.
