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. The training uses development techniques to produce a complete web application, including the user interface, business logic, and data access layers, starting with the most fundamental elements of computer programming. You learn how to write code using Visual Basic (VB) and C# (C Sharp); create ASP.NET Web applications; process Web forms; build SQL Server databases and access them using ADO.NET (Active Data Objects).
Participants can use either C# or VB – the Microsoft .NET core languages. Techniques presented include design, code generation, testing, and debugging, including the ASP.NET (Active Server Pages) and the SQL (Structured Query Language) Server database.
