Visual Basic 2015 Unleashed: my new book is available

It has been a long road, but my new book Visual Basic 2015 Unleashed is finally available.

It is not a simple update from the previous edition, Visual Basic 2012 Unleashed.

In the 2015 edition, I made significant revisions, fine-tuning contents as technology evolves from the Microsoft perspective. Also, I had the pleasure and the honor of featuring Anthony D. Green and Lucian Wischik from the Managed Languages team at Microsoft as the technical editors. They are the people who know Visual Basic better than any one on the Planet and their work has been invaluable to make this book even more accurate than the past.

If you read the previous editions, and if you are interested in the new one, you will immediately notice a new Chapter 1, called Introducing .NET 2015. The book starts describing the new vision of .NET, talking about .NET Framework 4.6 and the new .NET Core 5.

Among the others, the book explains the new code refactorings, all of the new language features including (but not limited to) the null-conditional operator, string interpolation, read-only auto-properties, partial modules and partial interfaces.

The most juicy chapters are about the .NET Compiler Platform (a.k.a. Project "Roslyn) and Windows 10 development. With these, you learn how to write a Roslyn analyzer and a code refactoring and how to start coding a truly universal Windows 10 app with Visual Basic.

To get a taste of the book, you can download Chapter 42 for free and the full companion code from the book site.
