Where to now for .Net Upgrade?

Hello

I posted this to vb.upgrade but I have had no response for three days so I
am giving this forum a try.

I have almost completed Francesco Balena's "Programming Microsoft Visual
Basic .Net", the first one not the 2003 edition, and am wondering what the
next book should be. I am a MCSD VB6 with 5 years analytical, design,
development and support experience and am just now upgrading my skills to
..Net. I have a 2 enterprise systems that I need to completely port from
VB6/SQL7 to VB.NET/SQL2000. So I thought that I would upgrade my MCSD and
grab a MCAD while doing this.

The SQL2000 rebuilt is not of great concern. I have read-up on the XML
features of SQL7 and have been told that they do not differ significantly
from their SQL2000 counterparts. So I am only seeking specialized books that
assume master VB6 knowledge and experience users as their target audience to
explain the new features and syntax of VB.Net.

I need book suggestions for the following .Net topics:
1) ADO.Net - emphasis on multi-level hieratical data accessed through LAN
and internet
2) Windows Applications - for LAN with some details on fat-client internet
applications
3) ASP.Net, Remoting and Serialization- for thin-client internet
applications
4) Custom User Controls - mainly for fat-client windows applications
5) Telephony and Encryption - for both broadband internet and direct modem
connections
6) .Net Security - emphasis on calling and caller functions/method identity
verification from local non-GAC DLL assemblies
7) Dynamic Assemblies - creation and verification
Thanks a bunch

Robby,

A greath resource is this

VB.net Resource kit
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/vbrkit/default.aspx

And if you have problems installing the resource kit
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/vbr...q/#installvdir

However I have the idea that the samples are not directly starting anymore
after my last OS updates (probably an IE security issue)

Just one of the answers I hope for you.

And than of course

MSDN.microsoft.com what is a great resource, one of them related to your
questions.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/architectu...l/scalenet.asp

I hope this helps?

This one looks really good. I have one a few of Appleman's VB6 books. It
sounds like it might have heaps of overlap with Balena's book though.
However I will give it a try.

Anyone else know of any for topics 5, 6 and 7 I wrote about below.

Thanks

Robby
