The most up-to-date Visual Basic.NET programming textbook—covering both fundamentals and advanced-level programming techniques—complete with examples and solutions

Visual Basic.NET (VB.NET) is an object-oriented computer programming language that can be viewed as an evolution of the classic Visual Basic (VB), which is implemented on the .NET Framework. Microsoft currently supplies two major implementations of Visual Basic: Microsoft Visual Studio (which is commercial software) and Microsoft Visual Studio Express (which is free of charge).

Forgoing the large amounts of programming codes found in most database programming books, Practical Database Programming with Visual Basic.NET shows students and professionals both how to develop professional and practical database programs in a Visual Basic.NET environment by using Visual Studio.NET Data Tools and Wizards related to ADO.NET 4.0, and how to apply codes that are auto-generated by solely using Wizards. The fully updated Second Edition:

  • Covers both fundamentals and advanced database programming techniques
  • Introduces three popular database systems with practical examples including MS Access, SQL Server 2008, and Oracle
  • Features more than fifty sample projects with detailed illustrations and explanations to help students understand key techniques and programming technologies
  • Includes downloadable programming codes and exercise questions

This book provides undergraduate and graduate students as well as database programmers and software engineers with the necessary tools to handle the database programming issues in the Visual Studio.NET environment.

Summary

Microservices in .NET Core provides a complete guide to building microservice applications. After a crystal-clear introduction to the microservices architectural style, the book will teach you practical development skills in that style, using OWIN and Nancy.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the Technology

Microservice applications are built by connecting single-capability, autonomous components that communicate via APIs. These systems can be challenging to develop because they demand clearly defined interfaces and reliable infrastructure. Fortunately for .NET developers, OWIN (the Open Web Interface for .NET), and the Nancy web framework help minimize plumbing code and simplify the task of building microservice-based applications.

About the Book

Microservices in .NET Core provides a complete guide to building microservice applications. After a crystal-clear introduction to the microservices architectural style, the book will teach you practical development skills in that style, using OWIN and Nancy. You'll design and build individual services in C# and learn how to compose them into a simple but functional application back end. Along the way, you'll address production and operations concerns like monitoring, logging, and security.

What's Inside

  • Design robust and ops-friendly services
  • Build HTTP APIs with Nancy
  • Expose events via feeds with Nancy
  • Use OWIN middleware for plumbing

About the Reader

This book is written for C# developers. No previous experience with microservices required.

About the Author

Christian Horsdal Gammelgaard is a Nancy committer and a Microsoft MVP.
