Introduction to Visual Basic 2008 Training
- 5 Days
In this Visual Basic 2008 training course, students use Visual Studio 2008 to explore the Visual Basic 2008 language. The course starts with a quick overview of the .NET platform, examining assemblies, Microsoft Intermediate Language, Visual Studio profiles, XML comments, IntelliSense, and debugging. From there, you will learn all the Visual Basic 2008 language features that you must internalize in order to create full-featured Web or Windows applications that make best use of the .NET 3.5 platform.
You will learn about data types, variables, and operators, along with all the important flow control structures. You'll work through several examples demonstrating the power of the .NET 3.5 Framework, and dig into creating and consuming your own classes and objects. The course moves on to working with data structures, such as arrays and collection classes, before finishing up with discussions of generics, handling exceptions and working with delegates and events. By the end of this course, you will understand the important basic concepts that will allow you to start creating .NET applications.
