Course Description: This course provides students with hands on experience using Visual Studio to create dynamic web sites with ASP.NET Web Forms and the .NET 4.0 Framework using VB.NET. The class provides a thorough introduction to the VB.NET programming language, including coverage of the essentials of the VB.NET programming language, built in data types, operators, control structures, classes and methods, collections and exception handling.

Students then learn how to leverage the power of the .NET Framework to build web user interfaces. Students learn how to build ASP.NET Web Form applications and work with a variety of ASP.NET controls, including validation controls and user controls. Students explore why state management is difficult within web sites and learn different ASP.NET techniques for managing state, including working with application, session and view state objects.

Students also learn how to use ADO.NET to interact with databases and XML files. Students learn how ASP.NET uses data binding to display data in controls such as the GridView and ListView. The course also presents differences in functionality and tools utilized in versions 4.0 and 4.5 of the .NET framework.

Other topics include: using a Web.config file to control application configuration; using master pages to provide a consistent look and feel to a web site; working with cookies; reading and writing files; and deploying ASP.NET applications. Comprehensive labs provide the students with extensive experience creating and deploying dynamic ASP.NET Web Form sites.

This course provides thorough coverage of the use of Web Forms for web sites. Students requiring additional coverage of ASP.NET MVC, Silverlight, Windows Forms or Windows Presentation Foundation should contact HOTT or refer to HOTT's complete course listing for additional training courses.

Students who are already familiar with VB.NET language syntax may want to take the 3-day ASP.NET 4.0 Web Forms Programming for Experienced Visual Basic.NET Programmers course instead.

Course Prerequisites: Knowledge of fundamental HTML syntax is helpful, but not required. Prior experience with a scripting or programming language is required.
