.NET Training Overview|
This five-day course provides a comprehensive and practical hands-on introduction to developing Web applications using ASP.NET 2.0 and Visual Basic. It also introduces Web services. ASP.NET is introduced as a new Web programming platform that overcomes a number of limitations of ASP. Its architecture is outlined, including the role of compilation, the Page class and code-behind. Web Forms are introduced, including server controls, viewstate, life cycle, and the event model. Request/response HTTP programming using ASP.NET is covered.
Additional server controls are introduced, including menus and master pages. Data access is covered using the powerful data access controls provided by ASP.NET 2.0. There is further discussion of security using membership and roles, and personalization features such as themes, skins and Web parts are introduced. This section of the course is tied together by a progressive case study illustrating a Web site for a publishing company.
The final section of the course introduces the architecture and programming of the HTTP pipelines, database programming using ADO.NET, and concludes with an introduction to creating and consuming Web services.
Numerous programming examples and exercises are provided, including case studies. The student will receive a comprehensive set of notes and all the programming examples.
