ASP.NET using C#

+ View more dates & times
  • Overview

    This five-day course provides a comprehensive and practical hands-on introduction to developing Web applications using ASP.NET 3.5 and C#. It includes an introduction to using ASP.NET AJAX to build rich client applications. ASP.NET is introduced as a Web programming platform that overcomes a number of limitations of ASP. Its architecture is outlined, including the role of compilation, the Page class and code-behind. Web Forms are introduced, including server controls, viewstate, life cycle, and the event model. Request/response HTTP programming using ASP.NET is covered.

    Visual Studio 2008 is used to greatly simplify the development of ASP.NET Web applications, including facilitating UI design. ASP.NET Web applications are covered, including issues of application and session state and the use of cookies. Server controls represent an important innovation in ASP.NET and are covered in detail, including validation, rich controls, and user controls. There is an introduction to caching in ASP.NET, which provides an effective mechanism for optimizing the performance of your ASP.NET application. The fundamentals of configuration and security are introduced. Diagnostics and debugging are covered, including the use of tracing.

    Additional server controls are introduced, including menus and master pages. Data access is covered in some detail in two chapters, including an introduction to ADO.NET, Language Integrated Query (LINQ), and the powerful data access controls provided by ASP.NET 3.5. There is further discussion of security using membership and roles, and personalization features such as themes, skins and Web parts are introduced. This section of the course is tied together by a progressive case study illustrating a Web site for a publishing company.

    The final section of the course introduces rich client-side development with ASP.NET AJAX and covers the architecture and programming of the HTTP pipeline.

    Numerous programming examples and exercises are provided, including case studies. The student will receive a comprehensive set of notes and all the programming examples.

  • Who Should Take This Course


    This course is designed for experienced application developers and architects responsible for Web applications in a Microsoft environment.


    The student should have a good working knowledge of C# and the .NET Framework. Knowledge of JavaScript recommended for the last chapter.


    Required software is Visual Studio 2008, Standard Edition or higher, and SQL Server. Either SQL Server 2005 Express Edition (bundled with Visual Studio 2008) or SQL Server 2008 Express Edition (a free download from Microsoft) may be used. The recommended operating system is Windows XP with at least Service Pack 2. Internet Information Services should be installed. Service Pack 1 for Visual Studio 2008 may be installed, but it is not required. See the course Setup Notes for details.

    A good minimal hardware profile for this course would have a 2 GHz or better CPU, 512 MB of RAM, and at least 4 GB of free disk space for tools installation and courseware. The installation of Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 requires 5.5 GB of free disk space on the partition on which the operating system is installed.
