ASP.NET WebForms - VB (3 days)

£895 + VAT for most venues (£995 + VAT for London)

Learn how to use ASP.NET web forms to develop websites linked to SQL Server or other databases on this three-day course (we also run a separate ASP.NET MVC course). Wise Owl don't just train in ASP.NET, we develop in it too, so we're in a unique position to explain exactly what you need to know!

The course starts with a brief overview of style sheets and HTML, explains why master pages are essential (and themes and skins aren't), then goes on to look at maintaining state. Most of the rest of the course is then taken up with various ways to link to data, especially using gridviews. The course uses VB as the underlying programming language, although we also run ASP.NET courses using C#.

There are lots more where these came from (or just refresh this page to change the quotes shown).

Delegates should have at least a basic understanding of HTML and web site design. You will find the course difficult if you have never used a relational database or done any programming before.
