11. Final thoughts

One book on Visual Basic.NET is 'Visual Basic.NET for Dummies' by Richard Mansfield (Wiley, 2003, 0-7645-2579-4). The Appendix of this book gives a useful summary of the issues involved in moving from Visual Basic 6 to Visual Basic.NET.

In this document, some of the ideas of object-oriented programming have been introduced. This has been done in the context of Visual Basic.NET, Microsoft's version of VB for the .NET Framework.

Although it introduces many of the basic ideas of object-oriented programming, this document has not mentioned inheritance, dynamic binding and interfaces.
