Course Description: This hands on VB.NET programming course provides an introduction to programming using the VB.NET language. Students are introduced to the application development cycle, structure of programs, and specific language syntax. The course also contains "Thinking Like a Programmer" sections that provide students insight on how to develop common algorithms. The course covers console and file I/O, string and character manipulation, managing data using collections and fundamental object-oriented programming concepts. Error handling techniques are also emphasized. The course also introduces how to access databases using ADO.NET and illustrates how to build user interfaces using Windows Forms. Comprehensive hands on exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce learning and develop real competency.
This class is intended for non-programmers. Students who already understand fundamental structured programming and object-oriented techniques should attend either ASP.NET 4.5 Web Forms Programming Using Visual Basic.NET, Windows Forms 4.5 Programming Using Visual Basic.NET or Windows Presentation Foundation Programming Using Visual Basic.NET instead of this more introductory course.
Course Prerequisites: Familiarity with computers.
