Visual Basic language often gets a bad rap, undeservingly. But don’t let that distract you from learning it! Beginners can appreciate its English-like syntax, and more advanced programmers can appreciate its vast libraries and flexibility. It’s part of the .Net family of languages, and as such, it allows you to program some truly amazing solutions. So, congratulations on choosing to learn this amazing language.
It is common experience among programmers that after learning the basics, you realize there is still so much more to learn! And the enthusiasm to learn if often not enough to make the leap from intermediate to more advanced programmer. You need to practice and work on improving your skills.
You see, the bad news is the code fear is real, and it hinders, or even stops your progress. The good news is that you can learn to eliminate it! And all it takes is a little practice and determination. And that’s where this course will help you greatly!
The course goes over variety VB .net programming projects. I show you how to put the theory you learned into practice by showing you how to solve each exercise and walking you through all the Why’s and How’s.
Because the course covers all exercises from scratch, some of the concepts are repeated across multiple exercises. The course doesn’t follow any particular guideline where each exercise builds up on the previous one, but rather serves as a comprehensive reference, allowing students to skip exercises that present concepts the student is already familiar with.
We’ll go on a journey to program intermediate-level solutions using VB .Net techniques and concepts, such as Collections, Databases, OOP, LINQ, and much more.
You will learn how to translate the project requirements into a working code. You will learn to use many different programming concepts and pick the right one for your solution. But most of all, you will learn to think like a programmer!
This course is all about practice. Therefore, to benefit from this course, you need to be an active student. It doesn't matter if you are self-taught VB .Net programmer or attend a programming course. What matters is the time and effort you are willing to put into learning and practicing your skills.
There are no lectures in this course. However, I explain what I am trying to accomplish with each line of code, and touch on common pitfalls, too.
This is a course for intermediate level VB .Net programmers who need to put the concepts and theory they learned into practice, and for people who prefer to learn by doing.
If that's you, then let's code!
Who this course is for:
- Anyone interested to move beyond beginner level of VB. Net
- College students, Self-Taught students
- Should have 6-12 months of experience coding in VB .Net
- Anyone who likes Hands-On approach to learning
I am a professional computer programmer for a national insurance company. I am versed in variety of programming languages, technologies, and frameworks. Currently using mostly SQL and .Net.
I have a Bachelor's Degree from City University of Seattle.
I first came in contact with programming back in the good 'ol days of Visual Basic 6 and Visual Basic for Applications. Manipulating Access databasea was so much fun!
I moved onto Web development in early 2000's, using HTML and CSS, later added PHP. It was then when I realized I really enjoyed the coding of the back end much more than the design part...and that joy of coding stayed with me ever since.
I LOVE coding, and I LOVE doing exercises and projects in my free time. I am hoping my courses help you to better understand the programming principles and give you a good starting point for your further adventure in computer programming,
