Anyone out there know of good material on VB.NET or VB 2005? I’m looking for something much more than just a this-is-how-you-write-VB-code book. I want something along the lines of Bill Wagner’s Effective C#, in that the book’s on solid idioms for VB, not just how to use ADO.NET or write ASP.NET code-behind.
I’ve started Paul Vick’s The Visual Basic .NET Programming Language, and it seems like a decent enough work, but (so far) it doesn’t really light my fire in the same way Wagner’s book did.
(Maybe that’s just because it’s VB and I’m not particularly enthusiastic about it in the first place…)
