Gain the skills necessary to be a computer programmer. This course provides hands-on experience creating software for Microsoft's .NET (Windows platform) using the Visual Studio development environment. Starting with the most fundamental elements of computer programming, the training evolves to leverage development techniques sufficient to produce a complete web application including the user interface, business logic and data access layers. Participants have the choice of using either C# (C Sharp) or VB (Visual Basic) – the Microsoft .NET core languages. Techniques presented include design, code generation, testing and debugging including use of the ASP.NET (Active Server Pages) the SQL Server database.
