Retail Price: $34.95
For developers, the .NET framework has introduced a whole new array
of ways to utilize various technologies together. Visual Studio.NET is an all-in-one
developers package that is designed to shorten the development cycle, and lead
to rapid application development. The key here is making it less burdensome
for the developer in developing Web services and applications. The book provides
an excellent introduction to the full capabilities available with the software.
Includes are comprehensive screenshots of menus and components, with examples
of built-in design and database tools which cover how to integrate technologies
such as ASP.NET, VB.NET, XML Web Services, and ADO.NET, along with chapters
that focus on installing and using each with Visual Studio.NET. This also includes
making applications that are cross platform and multipe language capable. As
.NET emerges, and is now able to integrate with different programming languages
such as Java and Python (which has just recently been added for .NET), this
book will provide the developer with a comprehensive tool on learning Visual
Studio.NET that will allow him to start building .NET applications quickly.
