In this excerpt from Visual Basic 2015 in 24 Hours, Sams Teach Yourself, James Foxall gives you a quick tour of Visual Basic that takes you step by step through creating a complete, albeit small, Visual Basic program.
In this chapter from Visual Basic 2015 Unleashed, you get an overview of both the Event-based Asynchronous Pattern and the Asynchronous Programming Model; then you learn about the Asynchronous Pattern, which is without a doubt one of the most important features in Visual Basic language. You will see how easily you can now write modern and responsive applications via asynchronous code.
Concluding his series on the coding experience in Visual Basic 2015, Alessandro Del Sole explains how to leverage the .NET Compiler Platform APIs to build custom refactoring tools that integrate into the code editor.
After introducing a new code-focused experience in Part 1 of this series, in Part 2 Alessandro Del Sole, author of Visual Basic 2015 Unleashed, shows how to create your own code analysis rules and integrate them into the Visual Basic code editor for reporting code issues and suggesting fixes as you type.
