About the Author

Michael McMillan is an instructor of Computer Science at Pulaski Technical College in Arkansas. He has written a textbook on Perl programming and co-authored an introductory textbook on Visual Basic.NET. He has also published over twenty articles in different trade journals on computer programming in Visual Basic, Perl and VBScript.


Choosing which data structure and sorting algorithms to use can have a great effect on the speed of the program. This book helps programmers make those choices. This book begins with an introduction to properties and classes in VB.NET. It also describes the creation of a timing test in the VB.NET environment, which is used repeatedly in later chapters to demonstrate how different structures and searching techniques can change program completion time. This little bit of code is the prize inside, since it can be used whenever timing of VB.NET programming is needed...[This book] thoroughly covers the basics, and some more advanced topics of data structures and searching algorithms, using VB.NET with a minimalist approach.
