Which books?

Posted 11 January 2014 - 06:24 AM

Dear Readers,

I'm a beginner in vb.net and already made some bussiness application.
However, as all engineers i want to learn more.

I already read this book:
http://www.wrox.com/...1118311817.html

I learned a lot from it, however i want to learn more about object orientated programming and how to design a good interactief GUI
i prefer books for reading instead on the computer.
Beside books i do learn a lot on the internet from some good tutorials (often when i'm developing something i search the internet on the subject to learn more about it)

This seems to me a good book for Object oriented programming:
http://www.amazon.co...T/dp/0596001460

and for the GUI:
http://www.amazon.co...n/dp/0470084111
or
http://www.amazon.co...89446283&sr=1-1

However there are many books in the world
My question is:
Does some one has experience with the above books or maybe someone can recormend some good books?

Looking forward to read your reactions.

I don't have book recommendations for you, sorry. But two of those books are dated at 2002. This is too old for these subjects IMO. (They would have to be excellent references in order to be worth going back this far in time.)

Well, the OOP book maybe worth buying a used copy of.. if it covers the essential theory very well, but the User Interface book is too old to be useful.

Thanks for your reaction.

That's a good point. However i can't find many books in that subject that are updated to this date. specially for user interface.

Unless someone else has specific recommendations you may have to just read the details @amazon, the comments and stars, to make a choice.

Designing Interfaces, Jenifer Tidwell (O'Reilly) sounds really good to me ;). I'm tempted to buy it myself, so I suppose that is a recommendation.

"Anyone who's serious about designing interfaces should have this book on their shelf for reference. It's the most comprehensive cross-platform examination of common interface patterns anywhere." --Dan Saffer, author of Designing Gestural Interfaces (O'Reilly) and Designing for Interaction (New Riders)

Thanks for the tip, it seems like a good book (didn't saw it before) i think i will give it a try. (i take your opinion as a recommendation ;) )

Besides books, i and my employer want to take a training of vb.net. I came across this training http://www.master-it...htm#onderwerpen
And it seems to me a good training that handles most of the daily used stuff. (the first modules i already know but later on it gets more interesting.)

In this way i want to lay down a solid basic knowledge of vb.net in order to make good and interactive business applications.

I would have to learn Dutch first, or ask my uncle to translate ;)
