This book shows readers how to use Visual Basic to gain the benefits of prototyping- reduced cost, reduced time and more importantly, reduced risk while building complex applications.
The techniques and examples described will give the reader new tools for building applications.
About the Author
Rod Stephens started out as a mathematician but in the 1980s at MIT, he discovered the joys of computer algorithms and has been programming professionally ever since. During his tenure at GTE Laboratories, he used prototyping methods to build several large award-winning applications that are still in use today. More recently he has worked on projects ranging from tax software for the state of Minnesota to a training system for professional football teams.
Rod has written nine programming books that have been translated into several languages and more than 150 magazine articles covering Visual Basic, Visual Basic for Applications, Delphi, and Java. He is currently a columnist for Visual Basic Developer (http://www.pinpub.com/vbd).
Rod's popular VB Helper Web site (http://www.vb-helper.com) receives more than a million hits per month. VB Helper includes information on Rod's books, essays, tutorials, and hundreds of example programs for Visual Basic programmers, as well as example programs for this book.
