Credit Hours: Three (3) Semester Hours Pre-requisites: CSC139 Co-requisites: DBA110 Course Description: This course is a continuation of CSC 139 using the Visual BASIC programming language with object-oriented programming principles. Emphasis is placed on event-driven programming methods, including creating and manipulating objects, classes, and using object-oriented tools such as the class debugger. Upon completion, students should be able to design, code, test, debug, and implement objects using the appropriate environment. This course has been approved for transfer under the CAA as a premajor and/or elective course requirement.
Extend student's knowledge of developing Visual Basic Windows application with event-driven programming methods.
Extend student's knowledge of object-oriented programming using Visual Basic language.
Introduce the design and implementation of Visual Basic database front-end application.
Introduce the implementation of web application and web service.
Student Learning Outcomes: Upon successful completion, students will be able to demonstrate (through completion of classwork and assignments):
Retrieve and organize data and information by defining LINQ statements.
Design and develop data-driven windows form application using LINQ to SQL objects.
Design and develop web application using ASP.NET and Visual Basic language.
Design and develop multi-form windows form application using more controls and object-oriented programming technology.
Handle the run time exceptions by defining Try-Catch statements.
Use and manipulate strings and characters.
