This one-day, information-packed seminar provides an overview of Microsoft's.NET technology. It should prove of value to developers and managers who are starting on a .NET project or who are evaluating this technology. The course is designed to run using .NET 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008.
The course starts with an introduction to the architecture and key concepts of .NET. Visual Studio 2008 is surveyed. The major .NET languages are introduced. .NET data access is outlined, including ADO.NET and the new Language Integrated Query (LINQ). Windows development is introduced, including Windows Forms and Windows Presentation Framework (WPF). The seminar concludes with a survey of .NET Web and distributed technologies, including ASP.NET, AJAX, Silverlight, Web services, Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) and Windows Workflow Foundation (WF).
The seminar includes demonstrations of the development of Windows and Web applications and programming in C# and Visual Basic using Visual Studio 2008. Seminar attendees will be provided with comprehensive notes and programming examples.
NOTE: This is not a hands-on course for students. Demonstrations are done by the instructor.
