Visual Basic 6 developer moving to .NET – you need a good book! http://www.microsoft-press.co.uk/hellodotnet
I have been looking for ways to help the Visual Basic 6 folks transition to .NET. Paul in my old ISV team suggested a discount of Microsoft Press VB books. He kicked off a conversation with MS Press in the UK who were extremely keen to help and I have been working with them to get a new landing page in place. We have arranged for 40% off two Visual Basic 2008 books and a C# book (well…some will move to C#).
The books are:
Microsoft Visual Basic 2008 Step by Step
Microsoft Visual C# 2008 Step by Step 3rd Edition
Programming Windows Services with Microsoft Visual Basic 2008
Head over to http://www.microsoft-press.co.uk/hellodotnet if you would like to find out more.
P.S. I will write up a short review of the first two books. NOTE – the two Step by Step books are very different. The Visual Basic book is for someone brand new to .NET and aims to teach the basics. The C# is much more detailed.
P.P.S. I am hoping to have some free copies to give out – should know very soon how many etc.
