Part I: Visual Basic .NET and SQL Server... > Getting Started with Visual Basic .N...

Chapter 1. Getting Started with Visual Basic .NET for SQL Server 2000

This book aims to give professional developers the background that they need to program SQL Server applications with Microsoft Visual Basic .NET. This overall goal implies three guidelines:

  • First, the book targets practicing developers. In my experience, these are busy professionals who need the details fast. These individuals already know how to build applications. They buy a book to learn how to build those applications with a specific set of tools.

  • Second, the book is about building applications for SQL Server 2000. This focus justifies in-depth coverage of SQL Server programming topics—in particular, T-SQL, Microsoft’s extension of the Structured Query Language (SQL).

  • Third, the book illustrates how to program in Visual Basic .NET, but with particular emphasis on database issues for SQL Server 2000. Special attention goes to related .NET technologies, such as the .NET Framework, ADO.NET, ASP.NET, and XML Web services.
