Best VB.NET-to-C# Book
Posted on 2004-11-22
I have been programming in mostly VB.NET for the past couple of years. I have lots of experience in Windows apps, web apps using ASP.NET, .NET Web Services, threading, even a little .NET Remoting. I have both my MCAD and MCSD certifications in .NET.
I want to start making a move from VB.NET to C#. I know that nothing works like experience, but I am posting here to ask for the best book for those in my situation--needing to merely move from one syntax to another.
Note that I do NOT need a book on "How to Program in C#". That's going to spend a lot of time talking about the .NET Framework, and that's not what I need.
I need a book that targets VB.NET programmers and highlights the syntactical differences in the two languages. Anything that talks about looping or try-catch blocks or anything like that is NOT what I need. I need a book tailored for those in my situation.
Remember the Ira Pohl book, "C++ for C Programmers"? That book targeted not those who were just new to C++ or to programming at all, but specifically targeted folks with a background in C. That's the equivalent of what I need--a book that targets programmers with a specific background.
Thanks very much.
