.NET training -  Intermediate VB

Visual Basic Training

Intermediate VB training course - Classes, LINQ and Entity Frameworks

£795 + VAT for most venues (£895 + VAT for London)

2 days

This intermediate-level Visual Basic course assumes that you already know how to create variables, test conditions and write simple loops in VB.  However, you don't know how to create classes (or at least, don't reallly understand why you'd need to), and you're still a LINQ virgin!

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 Visual Basic training course).
