My new book "Visual Basic 2012 Unleashed" is available

I'm pleased and proud to announce that my new book "Visual Basic 2012 Unleashed" is available, both paperback and digital edition! This time I had the honor of featuring Lucian Wischik, the VB Specification Lead at Microsoft, as the author of a great foreword. As usual, it has really been a hard work, but fortunately working with a great team (including Matthew Kleinwaks as the tech editor) makes things easier. The book has been fully updated to target the .NET Framework 4.5 and the new features in the Visual Basic programming Language, such as the Async/Await pattern, new tools in the...

My book "Visual Basic 2010 Unleashed" is available

I'm pleased to announce that my book "Visual Basic 2010 Unleashed" is finally live! It's my first English book and it offers more than 1200 pages where the syntax of Visual Basic 2010 is analyzed in details but it is also a book that describes how Visual Basic today can be used against the most recent Microsoft technologies for both Windows and the Web. (Click for larger image) It has been a really hard work but I feel proud of it :-) With regard to contents, actually this book is not intended for absolute beginners; instead it is intended for an audience...

Vsi Builder 2008 moves to Code Gallery

I'm quite happy about the fact that my dev tool called Vsi Builder 2008 is considered interesting. If you don't know this free tool, which simply creates .Vsi packages for deploying additional contents for Visual Studio, you can find some information here. The tool is hosted by the Italian "VB Tips & Tricks" community (also the English edition was hosted by our server) but in the last period we decided to make all downloads available only to subscribers. So, several non Italian people could not download the tool (mostly because they are not familiar with Italian language). So I decided to move the English...

Creating and consuming WCF services with VS 2008 Express Editions - part two

In my previous post we saw how to utilize Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Express Editions to create and consume Windows Communication Foundation services: Visual Web Developer 2008 for the first task and Visual Basic 2008 for the second one, observing how VWD does all the "dirty" work to publish the service to Internet Information Services.   In this post we want to use exclusively Visual Basic 2008 Express, reconstructing from zero the project. After starting VB 2008 Express, the first step to cover is creating a Class Library project that we'll call WcfExpressTemplate. Once ready, to the project must be added two...

Creating and consuming WCF services with VS 2008 Express Editions - part one

A question that I've often read inside the Visual Basic Tips & Tricks community forums is: "how do I create and consume WCF services if I have only Visual Studio 2008 Express Editions?". So in this post and in the next one we'll see right how to accomplish this. In this first post we'll see how to use Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition to create a WCF service and Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition to consume the service, while in the next post we'll see how to use just Visual Basic 2008 to reconstruct the WCF service, publish to IIS and, consume...
