Visual Basic.Net

DESCRIPTION

Why choose this course?

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to Visual Basic.NET.

It assumes the student has no knowledge of Visual Basic or computer programming at all, but they must have access to a computer with either Visual Studio.NET or Visual Basic.NET installed.

By the end of the course, the student should be able to easily understand all the major aspects of Visual Basic.NET and use it to produce their own windows based applications.

WHAT IS ‘MICROSOFT.NET’?

Microsoft explains the concept of .NET in these words:

“Microsoft® .NET is a set of Microsoft software technologies for connecting information, people, systems, and devices. It enables a high level of software integration through the use of Web services—small, discrete, building-block applications that connect to each other as well as to other, larger applications over the Internet.”

Microsoft’s ‘.NET’ platform was released in 2001 as a new feature to their Windows family of products. This affects many aspects of Information Technology because Windows products are responsible for a major share of home and office computers systems and website servers on the Internet. The technology behind .NET allows programmers (often called ‘developers’) to create software programs or applications that utilise the wide spectrum of information technology resources used every day by people around the world.

A NEW APPROACH TO BUILDING WINDOWS SOFTWARE

The .NET Framework simplifies Windows software development. It provides developers with a single approach to build both desktop applications - sometimes called ‘smart client applications’ - and Web-based applications. It also enables developers to use the same tools and skills to develop software for a variety of systems ranging from hand held smart phones to large server installations.

Software built on the .NET Framework can be easier to deploy and maintain than conventional software. Applications can be designed to automatically upgrade themselves to the latest version. The .NET Framework can also minimize conflicts between applications by helping incompatible software components coexist.

Student Feedback

It’s fantastic to feel a real boost to my professional confidence that has resulted from receiving the Advanced Diploma in Information Technology (Business Analysis). After 15 years of practising in this role across many domains and industries I now have a high level professional qualification to match my experience. This only came about because Steve Rowe from Courses Now took the time to advise me of the course details—thanks Steve and CoursesNow. Quote
