Visual Basic Courseware Updated to Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0
September 9, 2010.
Object Innovations has updated its courseware on the Visual Basic programming language to cover new features
introduced with .NET 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010. These new features include
auto-implemented properties, collection initialization, implicit line continuation
and the use of variance in generic interfaces. Visual Basic is rapidly becoming fully
parallel to C# as an effective language for implementing sophisticated applications
using the .NET Framework. There is coverage of other recent features, including an introduction
to Language Integrated Query (LINQ). An appendix covers Visual Studio 2010, a newly designed
integrated development environment built using Windows Presentation Foundation.
The updated Visual Basic courses are:
The five-day course is intended to be fully accessible to programmers who do not already have a
strong background in object-oriented programming in C-like languages, such as C++ or Java.
The two-day intensive course is designed for experienced programmers to help them quickly come up
to speed on the Visual Basic language.
The release of these two courses is part of
a comprehensive update of the Object Innovations .NET curriculum to .NET 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010.
The emphasis on the early course releases has been on C#, but we are also updating important
courses using Visual Basic as well.
Shipments of the updated courseware begin immediately.
