.Net Web Development with C#, ASP.Net, ADO.Net and More

C# .Net essentials in prep for web application development.


Introductory and Beyond

5 Days

Course Overview

Students who attend  .Net Web Development will leave the course armed with the required skills to design and build scalable and maintainable web applications - leveraging our extensive experience in the delivery of scalable enterprise applications with complex web interfaces based on .Net technologies.  Throughout this training, you will also be confronted with common web application design problems and given the tools you will need to solve them.


While many different project/application types will be explored (Windows Forms, ASP .NET Web Application, ASP .NET Web Services, Class Libraries, Console), heavy emphasis is placed on class library development and object-oriented programming principles. Debugging techniques and the underlying workings of the .NET Framework are also covered in detail.

Course Objectives

Working in a dynamic, lab-intensive hands-on coding environment students will learn about:

  • Complete coverage of the C# language
  • Graphical user interface components in the Framework
  • Database access via ADO.Net
  • Create and deploy ASP.Net web applications
  • Create and deploy web services with Windows Communication Foundation (WCF)
  • Use of IDE tools like the debugger and server explorer

Course Prerequisites

This is an introductory level .Net / C# developer course, designed for developers new to C#. Attendees should have current hands-on experience in developing applications in other OO programming languages such as Java or C++. This course is NOT for non-developers.

Course Agenda


Please note that this list of topics is based on our standard course offering, evolved from typical industry uses and trends. We’ll work with you to tune this course and level of coverage to target the skills you need most. Topics, agenda and labs may adjust during live delivery based on audience needs and skill-level.
