This VB.NET training course assumes that students have some programming background. Some experience with Visual Studio and the VB.NET programming language would be beneficial. If you are completely new to Visual Studio and VB.NET we suggest you consider taking our VB.NET language course first.

Who Should Attend?
Developers needing a fast paced introduction to Visual Basic .Net for Windows applications using Visual Studio and Windows Forms

Course Benefits

Visual Studio does even more for the Visual Studio developer than previous versions. Continued language support for LINQ (Language Integrated Query), client-side data support, Visual Studio and the .NET Framework 4.0 make it easier than ever to create robust, enterprise-level applications. In this course, you will begin with the basics, becoming familiar with Windows Forms and Windows Forms controls and learn how to access data using ADO.NET, how to take advantage of data binding features, and you will explore the range of controls and components provided by Visual Studio. You will also learn how to build solid applications using structured exception handling, how to use the Visual Studio debugging features, how to use MenuStrip and ToolStrip controls, and how to add unprecedented flexibility to your user interfaces using the container controls. You'll learn about important development topics that aren't normally covered in a beginning Windows application programming course. There is an introduction to Toolbox Components, then covering topics such as Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), and you'll dig deeper into working with the most complex of Visual Studio's built-in controls and the DataGridView. You’ll also investigate XML and the XML DOM. Then learn how to create custom controls, and secure applications. You're certain to find many more topics here that will extend your knowledge, your capabilities, and your value as a developer.
