The .NET Languages
The .NET Languages: A Quick Translation Guide answers two questions posed by the introduction of the .NET Framework. The first is “How do I quickly upgrade my skills to this new language?” And the second is “How do I understand the code that another developer has written?”
Brian Bischof’s book is a complete translation guide for converting programs among the three primary Microsoft languages: Visual Basic 6.0, Visual Basic .NET, and C#. Bischof makes it easy for the thousands of Visual Basic 6.0 programmers today to take the knowledge they already have and use it to write for the .NET platform.
Each chapter is laid out in a clear and concise format. Most chapters begin with a syntax conversion chart displaying how each language translates into the other languages. Included are detailed points explaining these conversions. Each chapter ends with a fully comprehensive example, written in each language, that demonstrates that particular chapter’s concepts. This provides readers with all the information needed for converting their programs: quick lookup charts, detailed explanations, and thorough examples. Nothing is left out.
With the help of The .NET Languages: A Quick Translation Guide, programmers will quickly learn how to build a wide range of applications for the new Microsoft .NET platform.
