This three-day, instructor-led course provides students with the knowledge and skills that are needed to successfully design and implement Web applications using Microsoft ASP.NET. This course assumes student exposure to the new features of ASP.NET that can be leveraged for Web applications matching corporate requirements.
This course is intended for existing ASP.NET developers who are writing solutions using Microsoft ASP.NET. This course assumes that the students are familiar with Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), client-side and server-side scripting, ASP.NET, Microsoft ActiveX® Data Objects for .NET (ADO.NET), and a Microsoft .NET-based programming language.
The Web developer is responsible for the design and implementation of a Web application and/or a Web solution. Typically, these individuals perform the following functions:
- Assist with the creation of functional specifications.
- Design and develop user interfaces (UIs).
- Create ASP.NET Pages.
- Write Web Forms applications.
- Create and test prototypes.
After completing this course, students will be able to:
- Create a Web application architecture that is maintainable and extensible.
- Describe the elements of a well-designed portal application using ASP.NET.
- Implement best practices for creating data access logic components.
- Create a well-designed data abstraction layer to maximize code reusability.
- Tune data-driven Web applications for optimal performance.
- Customize databinding for maximum scalability and usability.
- Design and implement an easy-to-administer configuration strategy.
- Generate custom configuration handlers.
- Create custom controls to encapsulate user interface.
- Use best practices for interoperating with COM components.
- Implement caching techniques to improve Web application performance.
- Design reusable Web presentation patterns using object-oriented techniques.
- Use GDI+ classes to create interactive graphics.
- Use DataGrids for advanced reporting techniques.
- Apply best practices for debugging and exception handling.
- Use Application Center Test for stress testing Web applications.
- Create a flexible security infrastructure.
- Implement encryption classes to secure communication.
- Build an administrative interface for a portal application.
- Use object-oriented techniques to build an extensible modular design.
