Programming with the Microsoft .NET Framework Using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008

Session Detail:    Classroom 5 Day

This five-day, instructor-led, roughly 200-level course provides students who are migrating from a different development language, an earlier version of Visual Basic .NET or C#, or who have completed entry-level training and experience using Visual Studio 2008 with more in-depth guidance on programming the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005.

Prerequisites

Before attending this course, students must have:

  • An understanding of problem-solving techniques that apply to software development.
  • A basic understanding of Web, Macro, and Microsoft Windows scripting techniques, and some experience writing scripts.
  • A general understanding of the purpose, function, and features of the .NET Framework.
  • Experience using Visual Studio 2008.
  • Experience in object-oriented design and development.

Who Can Benefit

This course is intended for software development professionals that have a minimum of six months experience developing applications in an object-oriented environment using Microsoft Visual C#, Microsoft Visual Basic, or Java. Delegates should have completed course 6367.
Delegates attending this course are planning to use the .NET Framework for future business application development. This course is intended for developers who wish to expand their understanding of application development in the .NET Framework, and it provides an initial foundation in .NET that can be built upon with more advanced .NET training. Programmers attending this course should ensure that they are familiar with the Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE).
Object-oriented programming and the .NET Framework are the basic building blocks that all professional developers need to acquire before moving on to the more advanced courses and TS Certification.
