ASP.NET: Building and Deploying Web Applications using Visual Basic .NET

Sessions Run Time Pages
6 10 hours 500

This course takes you beyond the basics of creating Web pages and XML Web Services with ASP.NET, by presenting the techniques and concepts you’ll need to build efficient, full-featured Web applications. You’ll learn to inter-operate with non-.NET code, to manage session state, to re-use code by creating your own controls, to improve performance with output caching, to debug your application and trace its activity, to use advanced Web services features, to configure and deploy ASP.NET applications, to authenticate users and limit their access to resources, to handle multi-user data access conflicts, and to support mobile devices.

In this course, you will learn to:

  • Create ASP.NET custom and user controls to speed development time.
  • Take advantage of ASP.NET’s versatile output caching to increase performance.
  • Add scalability and reliability by setting up and out-of-process session state server.
  • Make asynchronous calls to XML Web Services.
