Understanding Microsoft .NET

Displaying courses for Great Britain [Change]


Since the initial announcement in 2000, Microsoft's .NET platform has had a dramatic impact on how applications are developed and deployed. With the launch of Visual Studio 2005 and the next major release of the .NET Framework, Microsoft has provided developers with a new set of tools and technologies to further simplify the creation of complex applications.

This intensive one day seminar will introduce you to .NET, the underlying .NET Framework and the three core areas of application development:

  • Window Forms, for rich GUI applications
  • ASP.NET for systems targeted at the web
  • Web Services and service oriented architecture

Examining both the why and the how of .NET, it will enable you to assess the impacts and opportunities associated with this exciting technology, as well as gain a solid understanding of some of the important issues involved in working with .NET.
The seminar consists of a mixture of interactive lectures and demonstrations, the latter using Visual Studio and languages such as Visual C# and Visual Basic 2005. Coverage of newer products, such as Visual Studio 2005 Team System, is also included.

The seminar consists of a sequence of informative lectures, combined with demonstrations of the development technologies and techniques using Microsoft Visual Studio 2005.

Target Audience:
