This Introduction to .NET Programming training 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. You learn how to write code using Visual Basic (VB) and C#; create ASP.NET Web applications and process Web forms and build SQL Server databases and access them using ADO.NET.

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.

  • Basic computer skills including the use of the Windows operating system and accessing Web application and other computer programs

  • Some prior programming experience

  • This course uses Visual Studio 2017 but is useful to those using an earlier version
