UTS introduces short course for .NET

The University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) will offer a short course in Developing Windows and Web Applications using Visual Studio .NET in November.

The course will be taught by Microsoft Certified Trainer for .NET, Yusuf Pisan and will go from November 15 to November 19. It will cost $1400.

It is mainly aimed at new developers with previous programming experience in VB, C or another language wanting to upgrade their skills. It also aims at intermediate programmers who will design and build Windows and Web based applications using .NET framework, and programmers who are evaluating Microsoft .NET tools, such as Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003.

The course will introduce students to the Microsoft .NET Framework through hands-on exercises. Both C# and VB .NET code is provided side-by-side giving the students a better understanding of the commonalities between the languages. The class examples can be completed in either C# or VB .NET.

It will provide an introduction to the .NET framework for students who want to pursue Microsoft certification, specifically MCAD (Microsoft Certified Application Developer).

At course completion students should be able to explain the main concepts behind the common language runtime; create Windows-based applications; create Windows Forms with menus, system and user controls; create Web Forms and Web Services; create and use components in Windows Forms-based and ASP.NET-based applications; use XML Web services in an application; handle system events and generate custom events.

According to the UTS Web site, although .NET languages are not much different to traditional 00 languages, programmers will still need a short training course to understand the capabilities, get familiar with the functionalities and understand the communication structure for these services.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
