Book Description

Based on the principles of cognitive science and instructional design, Fluent Visual Basic, part of the Fluent Learning series, is a true tutorial that will help you build effective working models for understanding a large and complex subject: developing .NET Framework applications in Visual Basic.

Most introductory books just talk at you and give you “exercises” that have more to do with taking dictation than actually learning. Fluent Visual Basic is different. It guides you through learning the way your mind likes to learn: by solving puzzles, making connections, and building genuine understanding instead of just memorizing random facts.


  • Write .NET applications in Visual Basic

  • Leverage the incredible power of the .NET Framework Class Library

  • Apply Object-Oriented principles, Design Patterns, and best practices to your code

  • Develop desktop applications using the powerful Windows Presentation Foundation user interface API
