Hello,

Are you an experienced programmer new to visual basic 2005? Or are you a
beginner with no previous programming experience?

Kerry,

Would you happen to have any suggestions for a book for someone like me?
Programming for about 10 years, some really old vb experience (like vb3 and 5). But lets go
with "nothing on database wise (with vb)".
I come from a 4GL language so its really an upwards learning curve for some new concepts.

I'm looking for a book that does not use wizards with databases.
Thats my biggest problem in learning .net. Books all use wizards and the
dataset designer, but to switch to try to do everything by code, its really
hard to find examples that work in different scenarios.

Cheers'

M.

Miro,

You might want to take a look at these 2 database programming books:

Programming Microsoft ADO.NET 2.0 Core Reference by David Sceppa

Hitchhiker's Guide to Visual Studio and SQL Server: Best Practice
Architectures and Examples (7th Edition) by William R. Vaughn and Peter
Blackburn

The book by David Sceppa has been especially useful for me.

For a book on Visual Basic, but without database stuff, you can't go wrong
with:

Programming Microsoft Visual Basic 2005: The Language by Francesco Balena

I am slowly cooking thru one of his hitchhikers books:
Hitchhikers guide to visual studio and SQL Server Seventh Edition

I went back to his website ( http://www.hitchhikerguides.net ) and cant seem to see
the book there. Is it an older book, or did my book replace it?
-It is a very good book - I must agree.
A lot of the examples in the book are with "Stored Procedures", and I am trying to first
do procedures within vbcode and then move on to the stored procedures.

I was able to buy off ebay one of his older books for 1 dollar ( great steal ), on his
other book, "ADO.Net and ADO Examples and Best Practices for VB Programmers Second Edition".
Ive started into this book as well.

does the ADO.Net book show vb examples / how to create / bind datasets / updates thru code?

Its tuff trying to go out and buy a book, when the terminology is not known fully, plus
sometimes you dont really know what your looking for. Its like buying books blind :)

Thanks,

M

Miro,

Yes, David Sceppa's ADO book was useful to me primarily because it did
database stuff in code, with VB examples.

I have very limited use for all the drag-drop database development stuff.

If you want a really in-depth look at what is going on with bindings and
datasets etc take a look at - "Data Binding With Windows Forms 2.0" by Brian
Noyes
