.NET Training Overview|
This course provides a practical, hands-on coverage of developing Web applications using ASP.NET and VB.NET. It also introduces Web services. This five-day version of the course includes extensive coverage of powerful new features in ASP.NET 2.0, such as personalization, Web parts, master pages, themes and skins, and new data binding. A shorter four-day version of the course covering ASP.NET 1.1 is also available.
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.
Configuration and security are covered. There is an introduction to caching in ASP.NET, which provides an effective mechanism for optimizing the performance of your ASP.NET application. Diagnostics and debugging are covered, including the use of tracing and performance counters. The architecture of the HTTP pipeline is described, including handlers and modules. The use of ASP.NET and ADO.NET for accessing databases is covered. Web services are introduced.
The course concludes with three chapters introducing new features in ASP.NET 2.0, including a capable new development environment, Visual Web Developer, that is part of Visual Studio 2005. ASP.NET 2.0 is much easier to use than its predecessor.
Numerous programming examples and exercises are provided, including a case study. The student will receive a comprehensive set of notes and all the programming examples.
