Both VB .NET and C# are the key languages for Microsoft's next generation of Windows services, the .NET platform. These languages have been written from the ground up to provide programmers with a fast and modern programming environment. This enables programmers to quickly build a wide range of applications for the new Microsoft .NET platform. "The .NET Languages: A Quick Translation Guide" solves two problems created by the introduction of .NET. The first is how do I quickly upgrade my skills to the new language? And the second is how do I understand the code that another developer has written? Brian Bischof's book is a complete translation guide for converting programs between any of the three primary Microsoft languages: Visual Basic 6, Visual Basic .NET, and C#. It is estimated that there are 3 million current Visual Basic 6 programmers today. Bischof makes it easy for them to take the knowledge they already have and use it to write for the .NET environment. Each chapter is laid out in an easy and concise format. The top of each chapter shows a syntax conversion chart detailing how each language translates to the other languages. There are also detailed comments explaining these changes. At the end of the chapter is a comprehensive example, fully written in each language, that demonstrates the chapter concepts. This provides the reader with every aspect needed for converting their programs: quick lookup charts, detailed explanations, and thorough examples.
