Introductory Programming with VB

Course Overview

For those wanting to learn how to program, there can be little better introduction than VB.NET. It is simple and forgiving, and you code it within Visual Studio, one of the most powerful development environments around. This gives you a vast range of tools, automated hints and explanations and a design palette that takes most of the donkey work out of your coding, leaving you free to improve your skills in the important, conceptually complex areas. In short, it provides not merely the best way of getting Visual Basic training, but also of getting an introduction to general programming concepts.

Your new skills will also have an added commercial edge. The .NET environment within which you are working is capable of programming up not merely simple windows applications, but also web applications, web services, e-business solutions and n-tier applications. You will be equipped to write all the systems where demand is most actively growing. And it is also based on the current programming de-facto standards of object-orientation and event-handling which makes moving to languages like Java, C++ and C# very straightforward. VB.NET training not merely gives you the best introduction to programming, but also to a much wider world of systems development.

We can easily customise this course to give you either C# training or a mixture of both C# and Visual Basic.

What You Will Learn

  • Screen Design in Visual Studio and Event-Handling
  • Basic Coding Syntax
  • Core programming structures including Object-Orientation
  • Looping and Decisions
  • Programming best practice
  • Exceptions


Novices with an interest in learning commercial programming
