CIS E53 Introduction to Visual Basic 2005

 Visual Basic is the most widely used programming language for creating Windows applications. Why? It's very easy to learn because it uses keywords that closely resemble the English language, while other programming languages require memorization of commands that bear no resemblance to English. Another reason for Visual Basic's popularity is its development environment, Visual Basic 2005, which enables you to rapidly build Windows applications. Creating a Windows application ordinarily requires you to write lengthy and complex code. But Visual Basic 2005 relieves you of this task. Instead, it enables you to create the application and its components literally with the click of a button or menu item. It even writes all of the necessary code to get the application started for you. You can view and even fine-tune the code, but it spares you a lot of the grunt work.While Visual Basic 2005 helps you write a Windows application, you still need to write code and be able to plan your application. This course will show you how. You'll learn the building blocks of programming, including using variables, control structures, and loops. You'll find out how to use the large function library built into Visual Basic 2005, including the .NET Framework, as well as how to write and use your own functions. You'll learn how to use the large and varied library of controls Windows offers. And you'll learn how to access files and handle errors. Since Windows applications are event-driven and everything in Visual Basic 2005 is treated as a programmable object, you'll also learn about event-driven and object-oriented programming, concepts important not just in Visual Basic, but also in other programming languages you may want to learn in the future.Internet access; e-mail; and the Internet Explorer or Netscape or Firefox Web browser are required to register for this course.Price $99 plus applicable fees
