Course Details

This course has been replaced by COMP 3614 N-Tier Application Development in .NET as of November 2009. This hands-on intermediate level course follows-on from COMP 2690. Participants will use MS Visual Studio 2008 in the .NET Framework 3.5 to create rich Windows Forms programs with advanced controls. Students learn Microsoft industry standards and are exposed to .NET features such as delegates, attributes and reflection. Topics include: I/O system, object serialization, common Windows controls, advanced Windows controls, programming with ADO.NET, multithreading, asynchronous programming techniques, COM Interop, XML.NET document object model, XML.NET query language, XML.NET navigation, and reflection. Upon successful completion participants will be able to design, debug and deploy stand-alone Windows applications. This course along with COMP 2690 helps prepare students to challenge several Microsoft exams and move on to more advanced Windows development courses.
