Book Cover
The essential guide for VB6 developers moving to .NET

In this bestselling book, Visual Basic guru Dan Appleman takes aim at VB.Net, exposing the reality behind the hype, and showing you how to evaluate this technology in the context of your specific problems.

You'll learn strategies for migrating to .NET, and learn when to mix COM and .NET code instead of expensive porting. You'll learn key concepts such as inheritance and multithreading, and the fundementals of .NET memory management, and why Microsoft is killing COM. And, of course you'll learn the VB.Net language and many of its features, along with the concepts underlying many parts of the .NET framework (from ADO.NET to code access security) - all based on your current knowledge of VB6.
