Welcome to Visual Basic .NET : Introduction. Now that you have taken the course Visual Studio .NET: Introduction, you have a solid foundation for working with Visual Studio.NET to create .NET projects. In this course, you learn the Visual Basic .NET language from the ground up and use Visual Studio .NET to assist you in your learning as well as in the creation of end-user applications. It provides you with the basic skills required to develop functionally sound Visual Basic .NET applications.
Course Objective: You will learn Visual Basic .NET to create graphical user interface applications.
Target Student: This course is designed for programmers who have written code for at least three months using a procedural language (such as Fortran, Pascal, C, or Cobol) or an object-oriented programming language (such as Java, C++, Delphi, or Powerbuilder).
Prerequisites: To ensure your success, we recommend you first take the following Element K course or have equivalent knowledge:
