Developing Web Applications with ASP.NET 2.0 and C#

Web Applications Development Course Overview:

This five-day hands-on course discusses the design of Web services and enables programmers to develop Web applications using ASP.NET 2.0 and C#. The features and function of ASP.NET, including the new features in ASP.NET 2.0 are covered thoroughly.

ASP.NET is introduced as a new 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 2005 is used to simplify the development of ASP.NET Web applications and facilitate 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.

Configuration and security are covered. There is an introduction to caching in ASP.NET, which provides an effective mechanism for optimizing the performance of an ASP.NET application. Diagnostics and debugging are covered, including the use of tracing and performance counters. The architecture of the HTTP pipeline is described, including handlers and modules. The use of ADO.NET for accessing databases is covered. Web services are introduced.

The course enables participants to use the new features in ASP.NET 2.0, such as master pages, new data binding, themes and skins, personalization, and Web parts.

Numerous programming examples and exercises are provided, including fully-developed case studies. Participants will receive a comprehensive set of materials, including detailed course notes and soft copy of all the programming examples and lab exercises.
