Visual Basic Courseware Updated to Visual Studio 2012 and .NET 4.5
May 28, 2013.
Object Innovations has updated its courseware on the Visual Basic programming language to cover new features
introduced with .NET 4.5 and Visual Studio 2012. These new features include the use of iterators to maintain
the simplicity of For Each loops for complex list sequences and new keywords to simplify asynchronous programs.
The courseware incorporates coverage of other important newer features of the language, such as
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.
The updated Visual Basic language 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. It includes
a chapter on databases using the new LocalDB version of SQL Server 2012, which is bundled with
Visual Studio 2012.
The two-day intensive course is designed for experienced programmers to help them quickly come up
to speed on the Visual Basic language.
We have also updated the Visual Basic version of our course on Windows Communication Foundation.
The newest version of the WCF course discusses new bindings in WCF 4.5, gives an example of using
the task-based asynchronous pattern, and mentions WebSockets. Examples use .NET 4.5 and Visual Studio 2012.
The release of these three courses is part of
a comprehensive update of the Object Innovations .NET curriculum to .NET 4.5 and Visual Studio 2012.
Our emphasis has been on C#, but we are also updating important
courses using Visual Basic as well.
Shipments of the updated courseware begin immediately.
