In this course, students will learn to develop advanced ASP.NET MVC and Web Forms applications using .NET Framework 4 tools and technologies. The focus will be on coding activities that enhance the performance and scalability of the Web site application. ASP.NET MVC will be introduced and compared with Web Forms so that students know when each should/could be used. This will also prepare the student for exam 70-515.
In addition to their professional Web development experience, students who attend this training should have the following technical knowledge: An understanding of the problem-solving techniques that apply to software development, including the following principles of software development: modern software development modeltypical phases of a software development lifecycleconcepts of event-driven programmingconcepts of object-oriented programmingcreating use-case diagramsdesigning and building a user interfacedeveloping a structured application Students should have a basic understanding of the following scripting techniques and some hands-on experience writing scripts: Web scripting techniquesMacro scripting techniquesWindows scripting techniques Students should have a general understanding of the purpose, function, and features of following .NET Framework topics: Common Language Runtime.NET Framework class libraryCommon Type SystemComponent interoperationCross-Language InteroperabilityAssemblies in the Common Language RuntimeApplication DomainsRuntime hosts supported by the .NET Framework Students should have experience using Visual Studio 2008 in the following task areas: Declaring and initializing typed variables using the Camel case naming conventionUsing arithmetic, relational, and logical operators in code statementsUsing branching statements to control code executionUsing looping statements to iterate through collections or repeat steps until a specified condition is metCreating classes and methods to establish the basic structure of an applicationUsing methods and events to implement the programming logic of an applicationIdentifying syntax and logic errorsAccessing and managing data from a data sourceExperience in object oriented design and development as follows:Creating and accessing classes and class propertiesCreating and accessing methods and overloaded methodsImplementing inheritance, base classes, and abstract classesDeclaring, raising, and handling eventsResponding to and throwing exceptionsImplementing interfaces and polymorphismImplementing shared and static membersImplementing genericsCreating components and class librariesStudents should also have experience in N-Tier application design and development as follows: Managing a software development processControlling input at the user interface level in Windows Client and Web applicationsDebugging, tracing, and profiling .NET applicationsMonitoring and logging .NET applicationsImplementing basic testing best practicesPerforming basic Data Access tasks with LINQImplementing basic security best practices in .NET ApplicationsImplementing basic service calls Using .NET Configuration FilesDeploying .NET Framework Applications using ClickOnce and the MS Installer
