Product Description

About the Author

Karl Moore openly admits he has a job the envy of most school children: he plays around with a whole bundle of computer tools and gizmos, then gets paid to write about them. He's officially a technology author, living in Yorkshire, England - however has a surprising number of rather elaborate feathers in his creative cap. Karl started his ticker-tape-style work in computers at some very early age, coding with the old Spectrum and Amstrad machines way back when. He later developed a keen interest in Windows programming and slowly started to swamp some of the leading industries with innovative software solutions: from "predictive dialing" packages, which later became an industry norm, to automation products that ran a number of large, prestigious companies. Around this time, Karl started writing for the UK's only weekly national computing magazine, Micro Mart - followed shortly by a weekly technology spot on BBC radio. As his user-friendly writing style became more and more known to the industry, he became an official journalist with a number of Internet.com sites, plus started his still-going weekly syndicated column, Dot Column. In a bid to handle the increased workload, Karl decided to form his own technology company, back in 1999. That company was White Cliff Computing Ltd and consisted of a team of highly enthusiastic individuals that went on to produce such award-winning components as WebZinc and Webigo, plus own large industry-leading Internet properties, such as the VB-World Network, where Karl came in as Senior Editor. Karl still writes his Dot Column article, regularly speaks at companies and conferences.

Format: Paperback
I've been a fan of Moore since his first book, and this is a fantastic follow-up. This book is a real bible for anyone working with VB .NET and ASP.NET.
It starts at the beginning, with a warm introduction to anyone new to the world of .NET. Then it gets down to its no-nonsense method of delivering "secrets". Each chapter is split into two sections... the "Essentials" and the "Secrets".
The Essentials briefly clues you up and provides short bullet points to refresh your memory and straighten out any difficult points. Then the Secrets section gets into the real juice, explaining all those real "nuggets" of information that you only find out about once in a blue moon... like how to create programs that automatically update themselves, or where you can download a program to auto-write your code for you, or which parts of the .NET Framework contain bugs and how to work around them.
This is SUCH a refreshing change from the usual trashy Wrox publications, which simply seem intent on explaining the theory, or telling you how to install the thing, or how to create simple programs. This provides absolute real-world code to use instantly.
It covers everything from Windows development, Web development, Web services, C# - and everything else a developer needs.
Plus, make sure you download the source to go with this book. I did and it's got a few extra code chunks.

Format: Paperback
This book offers literally thousands of refreshing new tips, tricks and techniques that I haven't seen covered anywhere else. Each would take me hours to find out on my own... and even though this is more a reference book, reading it is a real adventure. Every page gives you one or two entirely new and refreshing pieces of ready-to-run code that do stuff you just wouldn't believe. Two words: buy it!!

I heard this book was a best-seller and i see why after buying it. When so many books have such poor information on REAL developers, this is the one shining light. i bought Mr Moore's "Tutorials", but this is his ultimate piece of work.. if you ues VB .NET or ASP.NET you have to BUY THIS, you will be amazed!!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My mum always said that if you buy a cookbook and get just one great recipe from it, it was worth the price. The same applies to this book, which is crammed with hints, tips, and information. Some of the ideas will be useful to you and some not, but even an experienced VB.NET developer will probably get useful information from this book that s/he didn't already know.
If you're learning VB.NET or ASP.NET, this will not be the only book you buy. But once you start writing live code it's a handy book to have on the desk, and it contains useful information that I haven't found in other much larger books. I have applied several of Moore's code samples to my own code and saved hours of time in the process. To get the best from this book you need to read through it quickly to get an idea of the areas covered, and then keep it handy while coding to go back and get the detail.
My only criticism is that the index and chapter layouts aren't as logical as they could be. Several times I've had to wade through many pages looking for information that I knew was in there, but I couldn't find in the index.
