Learning Objectives

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe the purpose of the .NET Framework, and explain how to use Microsoft Visual Basic and Visual Studio 2010 to build .NET Framework applications.
  • Describe the syntax of basic Visual Basic programming constructs.
  • Describe how to create and call methods.
  • Describe how to catch, handle, and throw exceptions.
  • Describe how to perform basic file I/O operations in a Visual Basic application.
  • Describe how to create and use new types (enumerations, classes, and structures), and explain the differences between reference types and value types.
  • Describe how to control the visibility and lifetime of members in a type.
  • Describe how to use inheritance to create new reference types.
  • Describe how to manage the lifetime of objects and control the use of resources.
  • Describe how to create properties and indexers to encapsulate data, and explain how to define operators for this data.
  • Describe how to decouple an operation from the method that implements it, and explain how to use these decoupled operations to handle asynchronous events.
  • Describe the purpose of collections, and explain how to use generics to implement type-safe collection classes, structures, interfaces, and methods.
  • Describe how to implement custom collection classes that support enumeration.
  • Describe how to query in-memory data by using Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) queries.
  • Describe how to integrate code written by using a dynamic language such as Ruby and Python, or technologies such as Component Object Model (COM), into a Visual Basic application.
