What you'll learn in this visual basic training:

This course provides students with hands on experience using Visual Studio to create dynamic web applications using ASP.NET MVC and VB.NET. The class provides a thorough introduction to the VB.NET programming language, including coverage of the essentials of the VB.NET programming language, built in data types, operators, control structures, classes and methods, collections and exception handling.

Students learn how to leverage the power of the Model-View-Controller design pattern with the ASP.NET MVC Framework to separate the layers of a web application. Students will use the ASMX and Razor view engines to design a user interface. Students will learn how to build models to manage an application's data layer using both the Entity Framework and LINQ to SQL. And students will learn how to build controllers containing action methods to manage communication between views and models.

Other topics include data scaffolding; URL routing; implementing security; using MVC and Web Forms in the same application, unit testing; and deploying ASP.NET MVC applications. Comprehensive labs provide the students with experience creating, debugging, testing and deploying dynamic ASP.NET MVC applications.
