This is not a typical textbook or reference book. This book is intended to help students learn the most basic syntax of the Visual Basic language with some of the more interesting .NET libraries. Complexity is avoided as much as possible while demonstrating simplified sample code that is easily understood and reused by beginners. The book is intentionally short and to the point to avoid overwhelming the reader. This book includes a section of libraries and techniques that are not often covered in traditional textbooks but that allow the creating of more fun and interesting projects. Using timers, moving images using cursor control keys, and adding images to programs are not “important computer science concepts” but are explained in simple terms to let beginners use them. Only a few specific projects are described here. The preference is that students on their own or with guidance from a teacher or other mentor will design their own projects. Learner selected projects are both more fun and more motivating that projects required by a text book.
