DN23 - ASP.NET Web Development - 3 Days

View Dates and Locations

Course Description

When Microsoft introduced ASP.NET, they revolutionized Web development. The clean separation between Web design and code-behind implementation classes brings some much-needed structure and discipline to Web applications, and gives full access to the power of the .NET Framework class library. This course takes a close look at ASP.NET, and also provides an overview of ASP.NET MVC and the Web API for REST Web services.


6 months experience of C# programming. Familiarity with HTML is advantageous but not essential.


What you will learn:

  • Understand ASP.NET application structure
  • Navigating between pages
  • Managing state effectively
  • Data binding
  • Using rich data controls
  • Creating custom user controls and server controls
  • Overview of MVC and Web API


For on-site courses (i.e. at your premises), we are more than happy to tailor the course agenda to suit your exact requirements. In many cases, we are able to build your in-house standards and naming conventions into the delivered course.
