About this book

Beginning programmers often motivate themselves by creating a first project in a subject that they are interested in. Many young programmers are interested in game programming. Learn VB .NET Through Game Programming is a self-paced learning tutorial designed to help any developer master the basics of object-oriented programming (OOP) with Microsoft Visual Basic .NET. Unlike other books on OOP, this easy-to-understand book provides readers with peer-level language, while illustrating concepts with definitive and intuitive game programming examples.

  • Teaches object-oriented programming quickly and easily
  • Game examples make for fun learning
  • Shows both the wrong way and the right way through an intuitive and innovative approach to learning
  • Written in a peer-to-peer language, easily accessible to young coders
