VB SIG: Doing OOP right in VB.NET
Join Deborah Kurata and dive into OOP features such as parameterized constructors, function overloading, static class data, and inheritance.
Doing OOP right in VB.NET
There is a lot more to doing OOP right than just creating some classes and inheriting from them. OOP gives you the power to create great applications and not-so-great applications. In order to do OOP right in Visual Basic .NET, you need to know the syntax of the new OOP constructs, the purpose of the constructs, and when and why to use them.
Join Deborah Kurata and dive into OOP features such as parameterized constructors, function overloading, static class data, and inheritance. Then discuss OOP issues such as designing great applications that take advantage of these features, defining the "correct" objects, and the fragile base class problem.
