Mini-Guide: VB.NET and the .NET Framework, Part 2

In Part 1, I highlighted eight tutorial videos that showed how to avoid memory leaks, implement global error handling and read and write event log entries. You also learned about visual inheritance, string functions, performance counters and how to create a console application.

These next seven tutorial videos complete this 2-part series and cover collection classes, delegates, exception handling, message queues and Windows services. Plus, you'll learn more about inheritance and even how to create an application for a mobile device using the .NET Compact Framework.
