Programming in Visual Basic 2010 : The Very Beginner's Guide, Hardback Book

Programming in Visual Basic 2010 : The Very Beginner's Guide Hardback


This is an introduction to programming using Microsoft's Visual Basic.NET 2010, intended for novice programmers with little or no programming experience or no experience with Visual Basic.

The text emphasizes programming logic and good programming techniques with generous explanations of programming concepts written from a non-technical point of view.

It stresses input, processing, and output and sequence, selection, and repetition in code development.

File I/O and arrays are included. Later chapters introduce objects, event programming, and databases.

By taking a slow and steady approach to programming ideas, this book builds new concepts from what the reader has already learned.

VB tips and quips inject both humor and insight. The book includes numerous programming examples and exercises, case studies, tutorials, and 'fixing a program' sections for an in-depth look at programming problems and tools.

Quizzes and review questions throughout each chapter get students to think about the materials and how to use them.

Each chapter has a summary and glossary for extra review.

The accompanying website, www.cambridge.org/us/McKeown, has code downloads, I/O, and database files from small, simple files to large files with thousands of records, flowcharts, deskchecks and audits to aid with program design, coding, and debugging; PowerPoint files for every chapter; and hundreds of ideas for programs and projects.
