.NET training -  Introduction to VB.NET

VB Training

Introduction to VB.NET (2 days)

£650 + VAT for most venues (£750 + VAT for London)

This course focuses on how to write programs in Visual Basic (called VB by its friends, and also VB.NET). Forget about the user interface (this two-day course does), but learn instead how to use conditions, loops, error-trapping and all of the other standard VB programming techniques.

We don't have any dates scheduled for this course, but we may well consider adding them - it's always worth asking  (or consider an onsite VB training course).

Although it's not a pre-requisite, you'll find this course much easier if you've already done some programming in another language.
