Sample projects for Visual Basic 2005 Jumpstart (O'Reilly)

Some readers wrote in and asked if the code samples for my Visual Basic 2005 Jumpstart is available for download. Yes, it is now available at this O'Reilly site (click on the Examples link). The two sample projects include a Windows application called LibraryApp that allows you to keep track of your libary of books. It connects to Amazon.com web service and pulls information down to your computer. Hey, if you connect a barcode scanner to your computer, this app can actually automatically build your own library system, complete with book covers and detailed book information. Way cool!

The second app shows how to build a simple shopping cart application using the new features in ASP.NET 2.0. Shows quite a number of features - Master pages, Profile services, etc.

Check them out (even if you don't have the book)!
