About the book:

Suitable for both the project manager and Visual Basic developer, Jake Sturm's Professional Visual Basic Project Management is a clear-eyed guide to enterprise-level project management using Visual Basic 6 and UML. It provides a digestible and intelligent mix of advice and design expertise that can bring your organization up to speed with today's VB and the Microsoft platform.

The book offers a notable mix of practical advice for the project manager with some nuts-and-bolts technical detail on such topics as components, UML, and Microsoft tools like Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS). Like most books on software development, this text walks the reader through the software lifecycle (organized here into the envisionment, design, development, and deployment phases). Along the way, the author's clear style and tips for successful management help make this tour a successful one.

Standout sections include the book's details on managing meetings and the sample documents (such as budgets and project schedules) created with Project 98. You'll also appreciate the breakdown of the various players in the development effort (from project and component managers to end users and corporate stakeholders) and the changing roles they play during the project lifecycle.

Along the way, the author shows off some of the latest thinking about VB used on the Microsoft platform, with coverage of business objects, transactions, MTS, and even Web interfaces created with ASPs. UML is used throughout the book as part of the design process (including class, activity, and sequence diagrams).

While there's certainly no substitute for real project management experience, with its mix of accessibility and technical detail this book can give any VB project manager some valuable extra help for taking on the challenges of today's enterprise development. --Richard Dragan
