Upgrade to VB.Net for Existing VB Programmers

Course Code - GN-152 Duration - 2 Days

Microsoft's .NET framework offers a new range of tools, services and technologies for developers.


VB.NET allows developers to fully exploit the power of .NET and in order to do this, Visual Basic has changed enormously from previous versions. This requires Visual Basic developers to think in new ways.


This advanced, hands-on course will help developers get 'up to speed' with VB.NET as fast as possible. The focus of the two days is to gain 'real world' experience of VB.NET through practical sessions with a minimum time out of the workplace.

Who Should Attend

This course is exclusively for experienced Visual Basic developers wishing to get 'up to speed' with VB.NET and the .NET framework in the shortest time possible.
