Which Course Best Fits Your Needs?

Introduction to .NET Training

The 5-day Learning to Program with C# course (as well as its VB.NET equivalent Learning to Program with VB.NET) is designed for students who have never done any programming before, and provides an introduction to .NET application development using the C# or 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.

Students who already have prior programming experience in a language other than C# or VB.NET would be better served by taking any of HOTT's other 5-day courses that are focused on a specific application type, such as ASP.NET Web Forms Programming Using C#, ASP.NET MVC Programming Using C#, or Windows Forms Programming Using C#.

ASP.NET Web Forms Training

HOTT's 5-day ASP.NET Web Forms Programming Using C# course (as well as its VB.NET equivalent ASP.NET Web Forms Programming Using Visual Basic.NET) gives a thorough introduction to either the C# or VB.NET programming language, and then provides students with hands on experience using Visual Studio to create dynamic web sites using the .NET framework and the ASP.NET Web Forms programming model. Students are required to have basic experience in another programming language before attending this course. Having basic knowledge of HTML before taking this course is helpful, but not required.

Students who already understand the fundamentals of the C# or VB.NET languages may be better served by enrolling in the shorter 3-day ASP.NET Web Forms Programming for Experienced C# Programmers course (or its VB.NET equivalent). These 3-day courses skip coverage of C#/VB.NET language fundamentals and syntax, and dive straight into teaching about ASP.NET Web Forms on the first day.

Students that are interested in learning about ASP.NET Web Forms but do not have any prior programming experience should take two courses: the 5-day Learning to Program with C# course followed by the 3-day ASP.NET Web Forms Programming for Experienced C# Programmers course. VB.NET course equivalents are here and here. Information and Pricing on multi-class training passes is available here.
