.NET Training Overview|
This five-day course provides a comprehensive and practical hands-on introduction to developing Web applications using ASP.NET 4.0 and C#. It includes an introduction to ASP.NET MVC, a new Web programming framework that incorporates use of the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern. It also includes coverage of using ASP.NET AJAX to build rich client applications.
The fundamentals of Web applications are reviewed, and a testbed is established for ASP.NET and Internet Information Services. The architecture of ASP.NET is outlined, including the role of compilation, the Page class and code-behind. Web Forms are introduced, including server controls, view state, 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 in some detail in two chapters, including an introduction to ADO.NET, Language Integrated Query (LINQ), and the powerful data access controls provided by ASP.NET 4.0. 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 rich client-side development with ASP.NET AJAX and use of the ASP.NET MVC framework. An appendix covers customizing the HTTP pipeline through the Application class, HTTP handlers, and HTTP modules.
Numerous programming examples and exercises are provided, including case studies. The student will receive a comprehensive set of notes and all the programming examples.
